KU falls short against Illinois, 82-75, in charity exhibition - KU Sports
KU, the preseason No. 1 team in the nation, was within striking distance throughout but managed to hold an advantage for just one cumulative minute, entirely contained within the first 20. The Jayhawks, beset by a combination of a somewhat disjointed offense, poor defensive rebounding and the 25th-ranked Illini’s strong perimeter shooting, did not retake the lead after losing it on a Coleman Hawkins 3-pointer with 9:39 left in the first half.

Kansas quarterback Jason Bean could only watch from the sideline during the final play of a 38-33 victory over No. 6 Oklahoma.

20 Years Ago, The Best Rock Band In The World Leveled Up With A Perfect Album
The best live rock band of the first decade of the 21st century was The Strokes. To be clear, The Strokes are still a wonderful live band in 2023, but if you saw The Strokes somewhere between the release of their first album This Is It in 2001 and their third album First Impressions of Earth in 2006, you saw the greatest concert on the planet. My bias on this is very strong, because I saw The Strokes three times during this period, twice in their hometown of New York City. For a brief moment, there was a renaissance of old-school guitar in NYC, and in those days before a “hipster” became a full-on slur, The Strokes were the kings of everything cool.
