No. 4/5 Kansas (1-1) heads to Maui to face Chaminade (0-2) in the 2015 Maui Jim Maui Invitational, Nov. 23, at the Lahaina Civic Center. The game, the third of the day for the event, will begin at 8 p.m. (Central) on ESPNU.
“Every player on our team has the ability to shoot threes. That’s how I recruit. We can’t get the 6-(foot-)10 guys they (Jayhawks) have. We play a unique style,” said Bovaird.
The whole thing is made a little easier, at least for Manning and his family, by the fact that Kansas, with Manning’s son Evan in uniform, and Wake Forest are on opposite sides of the tournament bracket and likely would only meet if both were to advance to Wednesday’s championship game.
“It’s a bigger picture than just Cheick,” Self added of the 6-foot-9 Mali freshman still waiting on word on whether he can play in games this season. “It’s a picture on student opportunities. If kids do not do the work leading up to college that the NCAA requires them to do, it’s very understandable they should not be eligible. If they have done the work, and an entity says for whatever reason the work is not good enough and the way it’s been evaluated is not accurate, then it’s inexcusable. It goes from unexplainable to inexcusable, and that’s where we think we are right now and feel 100 percent confident about it.”

“And we’ve got to go back to the drawing board this week, because we obviously had some breakdowns this week with a team that runs the ball pretty well, with the quarterback, just like K-State does,” Beaty said after the Mountaineers had three 100-yard rushers in a game — including QB Skyler Howard’s team-leading 129 — for the first time since 1969. “So we’ve got some things we’ve got to go get shored up as we head into this game.”
''Kids are trying to get all over the world to go see universities, you've got to bring your university to them and give them a reason to come look closer,'' Kansas coach David Beaty said. ''I'll be honest with you, before I came to KU, I didn't know it was like that. I was like, `wow, this place is real.' And you don't know it until you come here. So that virtual reality piece I think is going to be helpful for us just to pique people's interest to go, `I need to check that out, place is pretty nice.'''

Even with the swirl of potential distractions, it does nothing to diminish the appetite for a final between the Jayhawks and Indiana. The blueblood programs have played only 13 times (the Hoosiers hold a 7-6 lead) with the last meeting in 1995. Of course, a lot has to play out before that could happen, and a number of teams have a chance at spoiling a 14th matchup between KU and IU.
The NCAA Football Oversight Committee will meet Monday by conference call to determine how to move forward if there aren't enough bowl-eligible teams to fill those 80 spots. With two weeks left in the season, there are only 71 bowl-eligible teams -- those with at least six wins.
Ohio State and Oklahoma State fell hard Saturday. Here's how the world of college football stands after Week 12 with just two weeks remaining until the final College Football Playoff rankings are released.
Nah, he's fine. I know our GM will drill him about this during Combine meetings. I'm not sure how much he'll care about the comments, but he'll want to hear Elliott's responses.
