No way of knowing for sure, but I hope I’m smarter than a fifth-grader … although maybe not as smart as Miss Cochrane’s bunch.

April 7, 2010
With age comes accumulation, and Bill James has had to make room for a couple more plaques on the wall of his Lawrence office.

Ol’ Roy’s boys tanking

When Turner Gill was named Kansas University’s new football coach, I told our desk people I thought we had an old black-and-white print of him in our photo files.
