Still going strong with the football news, I like!
Here’s a fun read on how KU ultimately ended up with Dorance Armstrong, out-recruiting Missouri for his services.
Brian Hanni and David Lawrence have put their player interviews from media days into podcast form for your listening pleasure.
In case you didn’t see on the front page, Jack Whitman is leaving Kansas before ever playing a game. Matt Tait writes that leaves KU with just three bigs currently on the roster.
Some have speculated that this may be due to KU’s pursuit of top-rated recruit Marvin Bagley, who is mulling reclassification to the 2017 class. Here is a breakdown of what Bagley would have to do to be eligible.
The KC Star is still making lists, because apparently that’s what journalists do in the offseason. (I like Jesse Newell, but come on.) Here are the top 10 plays from Kansas basketball last season.
Kansas Athletics hosted the Midwest Compliance Summit earlier this week. My only question is how many representatives from Baylor were there?
Lawrence is hosting a huge AAU tournament this weekend.
Perry Ellis is headed to Australia after not receiving an NBA offer following the summer league.
Jimmy Butler plans to help transform Andrew Wiggins into a premier defensive player in the NBA.
The USA beat El Salvador 2-0 in soccer, which I think qualifies as a blowout, right? Yeah, take that, El Salvador! What’s up now!?!
OJ Simpson is up for parole today, and you can even stream the hearing live if you want (it’s at noon Kansas time). Apparently jail life hasn’t been awful for him, but he’s been the butt of several recurring jokes over the past eight years.
A minor league team has a bat dog (instead of a bat boy) who is trained to retrieve bats and bring them to the dugout after each play. Apparently the urge to chase a ball just comes on too strong at times.
