Jayhawk Insider: Kansas preparing for stretch run of league play - Kansas Jayhawks
It was another nail biter at Rock Chalk Park Friday night as the Jayhawks took on the scrappy squad out of Iowa State. Once again it came down to the final minutes before a Jayhawk was able to put up the game-winning score. This time it came off the foot of sophomore Ceri Holland, who scored her first goal of the season to give Kansas the 1-0 victory.

How every Kansas player fared at Late Night in the Phog
Kansas basketball's annual Late Night in the Phog was another rousing success, with fans packing Allen Fieldhouse to the rafters once again as the Jayhawks took to the court for the first public practice after the start of the 2018-19 season calendar.

How Carter Stanley won over KU's locker room before gutsy start
The KU football players have never claimed one starting quarterback as their favorite over the others, but there's always a difference in the way they react to and speak of Stanley. Whether it was wideout Evan Fairs in Fall Camp talking about how Stanley was a gamer who simply "takes control of the whole team," senior Steven Sims, who spoke with significant conviction in praising his quarterback after the Oklahoma State loss, or the mobbing of Stanley before the game, the praise has been free-flowing — minus one key voice, of course.

‘Kansas dad’ Keelon Lawson holds ‘little reunion’ at Late Night in Phog
On the court, Dedric and K.J. Lawson combined for 19 points and 10 rebounds in Friday night’s 15-minute Late Night in the Phog basketball scrimmage at Allen Fieldhouse. In the packed stands, Chandler and Johnathan Lawson — brothers of Kansas’ Lawson siblings — soaked in the atmosphere while in town as Jayhawks basketball recruits.

“I told the guys, I said, ‘Look how much better this is,’” Self recalled of his immediate thoughts after Azubuike’s free throw attempt.

After breakthrough performance, KU's Steven Sims lauds Carter Stanley's energy |
Sims prefaced his praise of Stanley, who started for the first time this season in the Jayhawks’ 48-28 homecoming loss to OSU, by saying he approached playing with Stanley the same as he would if Peyton Bender or Miles Kendrick were at QB.

Did the Release of the iPhone Cause Millennials to Move Back in With Their Parents?
Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams recently posted an interesting question to Twitter. Adams shared a graph showing that the percentage of people between the age of 18 and 34 who live with their parents skyrocketed after 2008. Adams tweeted, “The iPhone was launched in 2007.
