Quest for “national conference” via Gonzaga or UConn additions could pose problems for Big 12 - KU Sports
I also fully understand why the idea of Kansas playing annual games against Gonzaga and UConn holds a certain appeal. With the recent unveiling of its 2023-24 nonconference schedule, the Kansas men’s basketball team now faces the very real prospect of playing both those teams this season. The Jayhawks could run into the Bulldogs at the Maui Invitational in late November, depending on seeding and results, and then they will meet the defending-champion Huskies for sure on Dec. 1 back in Lawrence. Both these matchups would draw immense viewership and national attention. Now imagine if you could have them every year — that is, I assume, the value proposition for Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark and company.

Chris Hemsworth Nailed Why Ant-Man 3 Failed So Badly (Without Even Seeing It)
Unlike its two predecessor, Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania underperformed commercially, along with seeing a much more middling overall reception. Though not having seen the film himself, Thor star Chris Hemsworth has some ideas for why that is, suggesting in an interview with GQ that the movie's "save the universe" plot has been seen in "the last 24 films". Hemsworth also suggests that a franchise like the Ant-Man movies "has to become a bit more personal and grounded,” and his analysis gets right to the heart of what would lead to Quantumania's comparatively disappointing reception and box office haul.

Have Too Many Jedi Survived Order 66? Not Really.
Ten thousand Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice across the Star Wars galaxy before the rise of the Empire laid them low.
