The Day After: Tripped up at Texas Tech | Tale of the Tait |

With just three road games remaining in 2014 — at Baylor, Oklahoma and Kansas State — the Jayhawks, all of a sudden, are staring at the very real possibility of taking that road losing streak, which now stands at 30, into the 2015 season. That's not to say they can't upset one of those perennial Big 12 powerhouses, but the odds that it will happen are slim. That's what made a loss like Saturday's so tough for these guys because they know they had the talent to play with Tech and let a couple of little things beat them.

Rush feels at home again |

“Cheddar” is 12th-year KU associate director sports medicine Bill Cowgill. “He put me to work in there,” Rush said of the training room. “I was back in five months and took off from there,” added Rush, a starter and key player on KU’s 2007-08 NCAA title team. “This one took 10 months to get back. It was brutal.”

Larry Brown especially fond of Allen Fieldhouse |

“It’s the best building ever. I don’t think anything compares to Allen Fieldhouse,” third-year SMU coach Brown said Sunday. He’ll be back in Kansas University’s shrine with fellow former KU coaches Ted Owens and Roy Williams and current coach Bill Self at 7:30 p.m., a week from today, paying homage to the building which is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

KU soccer upended again |

In the minutes following their second home setback against a top-25, Big 12 opponent this weekend, senior KU goalkeeper Kaitlyn Stroud and junior midfielder Liana Salazar addressed their teammates, even before Francis came to speak with them on the field. All three wanted each player in a Kansas uniform to know the Jayhawks (14-3 overall, 4-2 Big 12) shouldn’t be re-thinking anything.
