Bill Self on KU: ‘I’m hopeful we can have a tougher mindset’
"Well I think from an understanding standpoint, we didn't shade the basket on an out of bounds under, give them a layup; that's something we don't do,” Self said. “We trap the post with two seconds left on the shot clock. We never trap under 10. There’s so many mental mistakes that we can improve on. So I think maybe more situations, talking through more things, maybe more film.”

Pooka Williams, a freshman running back from Louisiana, was not tabbed as a first-team running back — a distinction he received from the conference's coaches — but he was named as a first-team all-purpose player and as the conference newcomer of the year.

“Shoot, I’m not going to lie to you, the second one was more of like a, ‘I pray to God this gets called something because if it doesn’t they’re getting a layup out of it,’” Lightfoot joked after the game. “I just kind of sold it and gave them the old acting job.”

Lawson-led Jayhawks survive New Mexico State 63-60 at Sprint Center
“Other than Vermont, it’s as poor as he can play,” Kansas basketball coach Bill Self said after Lawson, a 6-foot-9 junior, went from barely scratching the stat sheet the first half to erupting for 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting the final half in lifting the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks to a 63-60 victory over unranked New Mexico State at the Sprint Center.

KU football OC Chip Lindsey signs on for 4-year deal worth $2.65 million; KU has option for Year 4 |
Lindsey will coach at KU through the 2022 season if the athletic department exercises the option — terms state that decision must come “on or before” Dec. 15, 2020, which would be after the conclusion of the regular season in the second year of the deal. If it’s not exercised, Lindsey will only be owed compensation for the third year of the deal, but not the fourth.

Benton Smith: Lagerald Vick needs to be good kind of 'bad boy' for KU |
During their 8-0 start to the season, the Jayhawks appear at their best and having the most fun when the senior guard from Memphis, Tenn., is knocking down 3-pointers, driving in for dunks and striking poses for the cameras and fans that can’t take their lenses or eyes off of Vick in those moments.

Home Alone Flipbook Video Unrelentingly Delivers Every Booby Trap
Home Alone might be a family-friendly Christmas movie on its surface, but at its core, it's incredibly violent. As anyone who's seen it already knows, a young boy named Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) creates various booby traps in different areas of his house after being left home alone. In the interest of keeping both himself and his family's possessions safe, Kevin's traps practically maim the so-called "Wet Bandits" Harry and Marv (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) as they try to break into the home. When seeing all of the traps concurrently in a new flipbook created by YouTuber TheFlippist, it becomes painfully obvious just how wickedly violent the classic comedy really is.
