KU’s turnaround has been dramatic. The Jayhawks now have sole possession of third place in the Big 12, and they lifted their RPI from 57th a week ago to 39th on Sunday morning. And that should go up even further after Sunday’s result.
In winning their seventh game in a row behind yet another masterful performance from a starting pitcher, the Jayhawks swept back to back conference foes — KU took three from Baylor last weekend — for the first time since 1994 and picked up their first home sweep of the Red Raiders (36-16 overall, 11-10 Big 12) since 2008.

Kansas has one hydropower dam of any size: the privately owned Bowersock Mills and Power Co. on the Kansas River in Lawrence. It has capacity for 7 megawatts – 0.3 percent of the estimated state potential. (Ed. Note: This article claims most of the potential lies in the Arkansas River.
