No opening comments today, just good vibes.

The Rock Chalkboard

Michael Swain of 247Sports attempts to give us a feeling of what the celebrations after the bowl game were like, and what it meant for the program.

Swain also takes a look at the legacy Bean is leaving behind following his MVP performance.

Harry Greenstein at the LJW writes about the show KU’s receivers put on in the bowl game earlier this week.

Is Cobee staying or is he going?

Greenstein also notes that Hunter Dickinson feels “refreshed” after the holiday break. (I guess Wichita State better watch out!)

Bits o’ Chalk

An Illinois basketball player - apparently one of their better players - has been arrested in Douglas County (Lawrence) for a rape that occurred the same weekend that KU and Illinois played football this past September.

Unfortunately, K-State beat NC State in the Pop Tarts Bowl, and apparently Twitter had a field day with it.

Oklahoma turned it over 6 times as they got blasted by Arizona in the Alamo Bowl.

The Detroit Pistons keep setting records, this one after blowing a 21-point lead. One more loss and they will have sole possession of the longest overall losing streak (which would include any streaks that stretch across multiple seasons).

Joe Flacco was sitting at home six weeks ago, and now he’s leading the Browns into the playoffs.

Ja’Marr Chase and his zero super bowl rings are talking trash on the Kansas City defense.

Eraser Dust

The Sandlot cast reunited for a charity softball game.

Universities across the state of Kansas are demolishing old buildings in order to save on maintenance costs.

The Kansas Board of Regents announced in June it is reviewing proposals to eliminate programs at the six state universities. If you take a look around the nation, those cuts are likely to come from the humanities departments.
