The Rock Chalkboard

TyTy Washington discusses his top six and more

“When you think of Kansas you think of a blue blood and they are in the Big 12, it is just Kansas. Also, the history behind Kansas of producing a lot of pros. I do feel like I have a lot of similarities in my game to Devonte Graham and a little bit of Frank Mason when they were playing there. I can see myself playing there a little bit.

Miles Kendrick talks 'quarterback-friendly' Kansas football offense

What Emmett Jones learned from Kansas football's all-out scrimmage day
“It was a test of the last seven days of install,” Jones said. “I could tell you this, we put them in a very hostile situation as far as noise and stadium sound.

The magical connection between Trevor Lawrence and his brother, Chase
In July 2019, just a few months after he led Clemson to 2018's college football national championship, Lawrence was cajoled by his older brother, Chase, and sister-in-law, Brooke, to fill in as a model for a series of life-sized oil paintings that the couple had been commissioned to paint.
