Self told Jackson, ‘This is as hard as it’s going to get’ - KU Sports
Self acknowledged that “very rarely does that type of coachspeak” urging a player to be looser and unencumbered “ever prevail or work.” As he put it bluntly, not only Jackson but the rest of KU’s new arrivals have to “go through some crap” and learn from experience.

Steven Tyler Accused of Sexual Assault of a Minor, Again
In December, Tyler was named in a sexual assault of a minor lawsuit over a claim by a different woman. Julia Holcomb accused the Aerosmith member of beginning a sexual relationship with her when she was 16 years old in 1973. She also claimed he persuaded her to get an abortion at 17, which she shared at anti-abortion rallies and public interviews. Holcomb’s lawsuit cites Tyler’s 2011 book, Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?, where he wrote that he “almost took a teen bride.” He attempted to dismiss part of the lawsuit in May, arguing that the admission in his memoir is protected free speech.

Willie Nelson Performs With Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow, More
Willie Nelson is now officially a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Just don’t ask him what he has to do with rock & roll. “It’s been a long ride from my first DJ job to being here with y’all,” he said during his acceptance speech. “And as a DJ, I was playing those first songs by Elvis. I remember writers calling that ‘rockabilly’ rather than rock & roll, and I never did pay much attention to categories, and I’m not sure the fans did either.”

Simone Biles doesn't get Taylor Swift-like attention at NFL games because she's Black
I want Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs star Travis Kelce to get all they can out of their relationship. I hope Simone Biles and Green Bay Packers safety Jonathan Owens have a long and productive marriage. I wish we lived in a world in which the level of coverage around these two power couples wasn’t dictated by their race.

Tommy Tuberville insulting leader of Marine Corps is galling
You read that right. Tuberville thinks working 18 hours a day drawing up defensive schemes and mucking up his offensive coordinator’s game plan is comparable to the 18-plus hours a day Gen. Eric Smith was working to protect the United States, our allies and, most importantly, the young men and women who serve.
