Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 7.9.13


Quick ANNOUNCEMENT: Hey folks, when I was out of town Misterbrain picked up the slack on these links. Thanks to him for doing that and after a little kicking around back and forth he and I have set him up to take the reigns of this little piece going forward. I'll be helping out while he gets used to taking the training wheels off but after that I've told him that he's welcome to turn this into whatever he wants. It might look the same, it might evolve more in depth, who knows. Either way, happy to have the help and thanks for stepping up to the plate!

On that note we'll also probably be adding a couple more writers as we ramp up for football season here soon. As you know the summer can be a grind but hopefully I've stumbled on at least a couple people that we can add into the mix with what we have and continue to churn out good discussion content. Also, if anyone else on here has interest in writing for the front page on occasion, shoot me an email at

Feel a little bad for Roy. This has to just be a pain to deal with. Seems like he's had more issues with things like this at UNC than he did at Kansas, but it almost seems like a AD issue more than a basketball specific issue.
