Catch him if you can: Despite challengers, Sims still KU's No. 1 RB

Can't wait for 6.00 pm tonight! What a LONG off-season it's been, and with such a promising and improved team from last year's tough season.

Everyone is picking us for last in the Big12, but they don't understand the additions that have been made to the team, especially with another year of Holsopple's S&C program, the depth at pretty much every position, and, of course, Heaps at QB and Pardula and Wyman kicking.

Non-KU fans don't understand quite how close we came to winning at least 4 more games last year. Those are all very definitely going into the win column this year, plus the league's weaker teams (TT, ISU, KSU, WV) just better watch out - KU's going to surprise them all!

KU football fosters confident mindset

This team is very different from the one that ended last year - the great majority of the 30 newcomers are JC recruits, players who almost unanimously are coming from winning programs. Since they make up a great part of the Two-Deep depth chart there's no reason to expect that this year's team will bear any resemblance to 2012's.

With Weis' coaching team and the much improved S&C, I'm confident that we'll wind up with a winning record.

Mizzou’s Pinkel pines for return of Border War

The main reason that MU wants to play KU is because their KC recruiting is going down the tubes.

Undrafted Travis Releford, Elijah Johnson join NBA summer squads

You have to yell to motivate these guys. If everyone were self motivated, no problem. But as you no dount know from your job, not everyone comes in at 8 andworks their butt off until 5. Sometimes it's necessary to encourage folks by reminding them that their next raise is dependent on their performance at work.

In NCAA basketball, there's no pay. The only real leverage that you have for lazy players is threatening to throw them off the team, or not play them. That doesn't work too well when you have a squad of just 10 players or so. Therefore, coaches yell - it has to be done, no way around it. But KY certainly can learn to do that, amd stay the pleasant cheerful person that he is. It's just an act, you prepare to do it and then you go back to being yourself.

Try it sometime chupa - you just might get rid of some of that built up frustration with others. Getting angry isn't a sin, but letting hostility fester is.

“Finding The Political Will To Reverse Climate Change” -- 04/25/13 at Woodruff Auditorium

What a deluded speaker. The desire to be politically correct has convinced Dr. Orr to speak on an issue without first understanding the basic facts;

"Global warming is caused by human society's generation of carbon dioxide" - NOT! 98% of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere comes from natural sources, only 2% from human activities. And that 2% has been produced over a very long period, ever since man started burning wood and other substances for fires. Even if we measured the human contribution from the start of the industrial revolution (1750) then it's still 250 years+ that we've been producing it.

So the 2% has been created gradually over a long time, not just in the last 25-50 years, as most people think. Why would it have suddenly had an effect on temps over the last 10 years or so? If the global warming hypothesis is true, wouldn't we have been noticing gradually increasing temps throughout the 250+ years since we started producing carbon dioxide? Of course, we would. But we don't see that at all.

Instead, the history that we have shows the temperatures consistently varying from one period to another. That's completely inconsistent with the concept that human activity has caused something called global warming. Temps have been increasing over the last 10 years, but it's due to natural causes that are beyond our power to control, or even fully understand at the moment. It's nothing to do with carbon dioxide.

“Finding The Political Will To Reverse Climate Change” -- 04/25/13 at Woodruff Auditorium

Most people are unaware of the facts about this issue. 98% of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere comes from natural sources ... that's trees and plants, etc. Only 2% is from the entire time that man has "pumped billions of tons" blah, blah, blah. Only 2%.

Now think a littlle about our attempts to reduce the 2% - we may perhaps cut .1% over 10 years by stunting our economies and going into a global recession. And we don't even know if it will make a difference anyway. Since 98% comes from natural sources, I very much doubt that our 2% is responsible for any of the increase in temperatures that we see in the world today.

You know, back in the 1600's, the Thames in London use to freeze over in the winter - how about that for climate change. This is all occuring naturally.
