If this is the end, how will Mangino be remembered?

Saturday's conclusion to the Border War was a microcosm of the Kansas University football season in 2009. Promising in the beginning. Horrifying in the end. Kansas dropped its seventh straight game, 41-39, on Saturday against Missouri at Arrowhead Stadium. The Jayhawks, who began the season 5-0, finished ... Continue reading

KU Defense

If you were playing against KU in a video game, their defense must be set on EASY. They can't stop anybody. Mangino needs to shore up this part next season or his "Prolifc Offense" will be for not. Continue reading

The Recap: Kansas 112, Tennessee Tech 75

Kansas put forth its weakest defensive effort of the season Friday and still came away with a 37-point victory, a testament to just how efficient KU was on the offensive end. The Jayhawks weren't terrible on defense, but they weren't their usual stellar selves. KU allowed Tennessee ... Continue reading

Done.

http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Nov/28/nano_09_winner_120x240.png I’ve written 58,248 (official) words on OverTime, my second NaNoWriMo novel in as many years. It feels good to’ve won and to be done at the same time. So now what? This was the question that plagued me last year and I solved it by buying ... Continue reading

From the sounds of it, Kansas coach Mark Mangino believes his Kansas team is a near-lock to make a bowl game if it defeats Missouri on Saturday. “Everything I’m hearing from my sources, which I think are pretty credible, (tells) me that 6-6, for us in the ... Continue reading

The Recap: Kansas 89, Oakland 59

Kansas' star center battled the bad-matchup blues for the duration of Wednesday's game and its preseason All-American point guard fell ill at halftime. In spite of these problems, KU defeated a probable NCAA tournament team with plenty of points to spare. This group of Jayhawks backed up ... Continue reading

The Home Stretch

Today I passed the 50,000-word mark, which makes me a NaNoWriMo winner. I’m excited about meeting the base goal, believe me, but since it’s the second time I’ve done it, it’s not as much a jump up and yell kind of thing as it was last year. ... Continue reading

No worries, apparently a lot of kids are that way.

I often wonder if other kids are as scatterbrained and as seemingly incompetent as my kid when it comes to little everyday tasks. But, when I get the opportunity to discuss this with other parents I often end up feeling better knowing that it is somewhat normal ... Continue reading

Movie Review: Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire

Claireece "Precious" Jones, the abused and illiterate 16-year-old in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," is so beaten down by her circumstances that she hardly ever shows emotion. Played by newcomer Gabourey Sidibe, her face is frozen in a near-constant grimace that seems to anticipate ... Continue reading

Movie Review: Fantastic Mr. Fox

With its jittery stop-motion animation, exquisitely detailed shots, and outwardly self-aware characters, director Wes Anderson's "Fantastic Mr. Fox" is the epitome of artifice. It's also as bright and cheery a time as you'll have at the movies this year. Anderson and co-writer Noah Baumbach have adapted Roald ... Continue reading
