Jayhawk Flashback: Missouri, 9/27/2003

Jesse Newell

It's always hard to look back at an improving football team to find the exact time that it changed from a pushover to a program. Think about it with the KU football team. Was there one game — or even one play — that made you think, "Hey, this might ...

Media Days: Video clips that I found interesting

Jesse Newell

After making the eight-hour drive back from Irving, Texas, I'm left with one philosophical question: Would you realize immediately that you were in the Flint Hills if the sign on the Turnpike didn't tell you it was the Flint Hills? While you're pondering that, here are some of the videos ...

"6.5 wins and no excuses" doesn't have the same ring

Jesse Newell

If Colorado coach Dan Hawkins is serious about his "10 wins and no excuses" for his Buffaloes this season, he can have his friends put their money where his mouth is. http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Jul/20/Hawkins_.jpg The college football future odds have been released by Vegasinsider.com, and, not surprisingly, sports books have slightly lower ...

Jayhawk Flashback: Texas, 1/27/03

Jesse Newell

I don't think we could make it through a summer of Jayhawk Flashbacks without showing one of the most memorable games I saw in person: Kansas vs. Texas on Jan. 27, 2003. The significance? KU had lost two straight coming into the game, including a rare loss in Boulder, Colo., ...

Sherron Collins: Best KU guard ever?

Jesse Newell

Will Sherron Collins end up being the best guard in KU history?

Jayhawk Flashback: Missouri, 3/5/2000

Jesse Newell

A discussion in the office led me to this week’s Jayhawk Flashback, an 83-82 Kansas victory over Missouri on March 5, 2000. The original curiosity came from trying to remember which game included that crazy dunk where the Mizzou guy flew over the KU guy but still was called for ...

Jayhawk Flashback: Kansas State, 10/9/2004

Jesse Newell

Let it never be said that the Jayhawk Flashback blog doesn’t listen to its fans. Many people had requested that we start mixing in some Kansas football games into the Jayhawk Flashback. I decided to start with the most memorable game I could remember from my college years: Oct. 9, ...

Jayhawk Flashback: Roy Williams introductory press conference, July 8, 1988

Jesse Newell

My goal this week was to try to work former Kansas athletic director Bob Frederick into the Jayhawk Flashback. After going deep into the archives (and getting lots of help from the Channel 6 staff), we were able to dig up one of Frederick's greatest moments as KU athletic director: ...
