Elijah Jones latest to give KU football Florida flavor

Tom Keegan

Kansas keeps its football roster a secret, doesn't update the various comings and goings to keep its fan base in the know, so it helps to check out social media for clues. Good news: Ellsowrth Community College cornerback Elijah Jones retweeted on Tuesday a photo of himself wearing a No. ...

Mario Chalmers proves second round no impediment to NBA success

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2018/jun/14/326659/ One of the scariest aspects of sports betting on its way to becoming legal involves "sure things," wagers you absolutely, positively, in no way, shape or form could lose. For example, if Sprint Center would have had a sports book on March 16, 2008 and offered odds on Mario ...

Which Kansas prospect will go first in NBA draft no easy call

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2018/mar/11/324031/ I conducted an unscientific poll on Twitter, asking: “You’re an NBA GM with balanced roster, no glaring need. Which #KUbball player do you draft first?” The results: 1 - Devonte’ Graham (31 percent) 2 - Svi Mykhailiuk (30 percent) 3 - Malik Newman (22 percent) 4 - Billy Preston ...

NBA mock drafts include four Jayhawks

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2018/mar/25/324573/ The Athletic, ESPN.com, The Ringer and SI.com all do a nice job with their mock drafts. The four sites agree on two things regarding how KU players will fare in next Thursday night’s draft. First, they predict that the first round will pass without any Jayhawks hearing their names ...

Depth at wide receiver thin under David Beaty

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2015/sep/26/297067/ The once-in-a-lifetime Air Raid show put on by Johnny Manziel and Mike Evans that Kansas head coach David Beaty witnessed as receivers coach for Kevin Sumlin at Texas A&M didn't in any way resemble the three years of offensive duds Beaty's teams have plodded through at Kansas. A porous ...

Gary Woodland competing in U.S. Open for eighth time

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2018/jun/13/326599/ The U.S. Open doesn't randomly group golfers into threesomes when making tee times. Think themes. For example, the English threesome of Tyrrell Hatton, Danny Willett and Ian Poulter tees off No. 1 at Shinnecock Hills at 6:51 (Central time). Spaniards Sergio Garcia, Jon Rahm and Rafa Cabrero Bello tee ...

Big 12 not as loaded at quarterback

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2018/jun/12/326585/ Most of the improvements made to the Kansas football roster after a recruiting season devoted to bringing on prospects from junior colleges happened on defense, which happens to match up well with the most significant Big 12 departures, which came at quarterback. Oklahoma State has to replace Mason Rudolph, ...

All three quarterbacks still have shot to win job

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2018/apr/28/325469/ Fourth-year Kansas football coach David Beaty gave no indication during the 15-practice spring session as to the identity of the starting quarterback this coming fall. A look at Beaty's first three seasons on the job doesn't help narrow it down much because he has had a tendency to change ...

Kansas football off to slow recruiting start

Tom Keegan

http://www2.ljworld.com/photos/2017/nov/03/320464/ Sheahon Zenger, David Beaty's last line of defense against a 3-33 record, is gone now, so coaches using negative recruiting against Kansas have even more credibility with their lame-duck portrayals of KU's fourth-year coach. It's not going to be easy for the Kansas coaching staff to line up commitments ...

One thing Kansas football roster has is experience

Tom Keegan

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2017/aug/18/318648/ Provided that the mental gains achieved through repetition and physical gains acquired via natural growth and weight-room work outpace the wear and tear on the body that comes with increased exposure to hits and injuries, it’s generally safe to assume that experience makes a football player better. In that ...
