“KU has lost 26-consecutive true road games and 29 games away from Lawrence overall.”This is not from a Texas Tech Red Raider fan site lobbing bricks at the Kansas Jayhawks in anticipation of Saturday’s meeting in Lubbock between two teams that are 2-4 and 0-3 in the Big 12 (it’s a 2:30 pm CT kick on Fox Sports Net, I know you’ve already set the DVR).This is also not a...
Two Big 12 schools in search of their first conference win will face off against one another on Saturday when the Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Tech Red Raiders meet.
Kansas (2-4) and Texas Tech (2-4) each enter this game with identical records in and out of conference. That changes on Saturday. Coverage of the game between these two will air somewhere so check your local listings. The...
The Kansas Jayhawks will enter the 2014-15 season ranked No. 5 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ poll. The poll was released on Thursday afternoon.
This marks the 23rd time in the 26-year history of the coaches’ poll that Kansas has been ranked in the top 25. This is also the ninth time Kansas has been ranked seventh or higher in the poll since Bill Self joined the program prior...
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) During a practice shortly after he was appointed interim coach at Kansas, Clint Bowen lined up next to his players on the sideline and took off at the first whistle.
He was running sprints with them. And not just one or two players, all of them.
Imagine Charlie Weis doing that.
It was the first of many instances in which Bowen bridged a disconnect that developed...

The Kansas Jayhawks lost a lot of talent in the offseason with Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid both gone for the NBA. Luckily for head coach Bill Self, this year’s recruiting class is no joke, and has the talent to make this team a real contender in the upcoming season. Many people will look at the class and say that forward Cliff Alexander is the best incoming freshman, and while...
Landen Lucas observed something right away about Kelly Oubre the first time he played basketball with him in Lawrence: The freshman wasn’t timid.
“Coming in a lot of times, freshmen seem to almost not step aside but let the guys like Wayne (Selden) run things for a little while,” said Lucas, a sophomore. “I noticed first open gyms, first pickups, he was going at them, and...

What's it going to be, Conner Frankamp?
Shooter? Or player?
"It was, obviously, a little different," the Kansas sophomore guard said of his freshman campaign, one that smoldered but never quite got around to setting the Big 12 on fire. "But like I said, just getting in the gym as much as you can, and work on your weaknesses, it makes getting in the game a little...
This is The Student Section’s first basketball-themed Locker post of the season.
It certainly leaves an image in the mind’s eye.

Kansas has a football job opening, and it’s a good job. Scoff if you must, but these are the breaks. If you’re looking for a shot to be great, the job is open, and the juice is worth the squeeze.
Charlie Weis was fired this weekend, and if you’re Kansas, it looks grim. You hired the guy after choosing him over...
Kansas football did what it had to Sunday, firing Charlie Weis just into his third season as head coach.
Why Make the Change Now?
Make no mistake about it: this is something KU had to do right now. Sure, it’s usually not a good thing for a program to terminate its coach in the middle of a season, with eight games remaining on the schedule. However, sometimes a leadership change...
After a disastrous 6-22 record in three seasons, Charlie Weis was fired as Kansas’ head coach on Sunday. Weis went 1-18 in three years during...
