Notebook: Self calls opener a 'seeding game,' willing to make IU an annual series |
Even though Friday’s season opener between No. 3 Kansas and No. 11 Indiana featured two of the top teams in the country and carried with it an NCAA Tournament feel, KU coach Bill Self said the result was secondary in the big picture of the young 2016-17 season.

Indiana outlasts Kansas in overtime |
In the first meeting between two of the nation’s most recognizable college basketball programs in more than 20 years, No. 3-ranked Kansas and No. 11 Indiana delivered an overtime thriller Friday night at the Armed Forces Classic, in Honolulu.

KU's Bill Self laments team's mistakes as much as missed calls in season-opening loss to Indiana |
Self was the first to admit that the Jayhawks did not play very well, but there were a couple of missed calls — in a game that featured 63 fouls whistled by the officials — that Self could not help but recall after the loss.

Blue Bloodied: Jayhawks drop opener to Indiana in OT, 103-99 |
Maybe it was the nostalgia and pride of playing in front of so many men and women of the military on Veteran’s Day or the unfathomable idea of opening the season they’ve been waiting so long to tip off with a loss. Either way, when the game began, KU and Indiana were sporting clean and crisp bright red and blue alternate uniforms to honor the occasion. By game’s end, the two teams basically were wearing the same color — sweat.

HCS Interview: Brian Hanni, voice of Kansas Jayhawks | Heartland College Sports
When I first met Brian Hanni, I was working in Oklahoma and he was doing a Kansas Jayhawks radio show in Lawrence. Since then, he took the job in Lubbock, Texas as the voice of the Red Raiders men’s basketball team. This past summer he took the job to be the voice of the Kansas Jayhawks. We spoke about the struggles but optimism of the Kansas football team and previewed the upcoming Jayhawks basketball season! Can this team make another Final 4 run? What is the team’s biggest weakness?

KU sophomore Carlton Bragg believes fresh start can end funk |
Kansas sophomore Carlton Bragg Jr., will start Friday night’s season opener against No. 11 Indiana in the Armed Forces Classic in Hawaii, but that is not necessarily an indication that the 6-foot-10 forward who struggled during exhibition play is all the way recovered from the issues that already have plagued him this season.

'A baller,' Carter Stanley taking over as KU's No. 1 QB |
Without ever taking a snap as the team’s starting quarterback, Kansas redshirt freshman Carter Stanley already had earned the respect of the Jayhawks’ top receiver, Steven Sims Jr.

Gameday Breakdown: KU football vs. Iowa State |
For all the excitement surrounding David Beaty naming redshirt freshman Carter Stanley the starting quarterback against Iowa State, it might be easy to forget this is Stanley’s first college start. The 6-foot-2 QB looked comfortable a week ago in West Virginia when an injury to Montell Cozart forced him into the game. Stanley passed for 127 yards and two touchdowns on just 11 throws, but starting a game against a team desperate for a victory is far different than coming in late against a team that knows it already has won.

David Beaty names Carter Stanley starter for Iowa State game |
Redshirt freshman Carter Stanley will become the 10th quarterback in seven seasons to start a game for Kansas in Saturday's 11 a.m. kickoff vs. Iowa State at Memorial Stadium. Head coach David Beaty went public with that decision on 610

The Jayhawks' 12 straight Big 12 titles is among the most amazing and under-appreciated runs in American sports today.
