History says Huskers should be favorites to win Big 12 North

Jesse Newell

When I hear people talking about their pick to win the Big 12 North in football this season, the debate almost always becomes philosophical. What wins championships? Is it a dominating offense, or a dominating defense? Obviously, Kansas and Nebraska look like the two front-runners. Both look to win games ...

Billy Thomas' Jayhawk Flashback: UMass, 12/10/97

Jesse Newell

The Jayhawk Flashback returns this week with Allen Fieldhouse memories from Billy Thomas. Actually, when I asked him, Thomas said he had two favorite games at the Fieldhouse: Dec. 1, 1995 vs. UCLA and Dec. 10, 1997 against UMass. Unfortunately, I could only find the UMass game in our archives. ...

Brandon Rush's Jayhawk Flashback: Kentucky, 1/7/2006

Jesse Newell

Welcome to a special Jayhawk Flashback. The next two blogs won't feature my choice for a classic KU game, but instead a former Jayhawk's choice as his favorite Allen Fieldhouse memory. We'll get to Billy Thomas' choice next week, but this week we'll focus on current Indiana Pacer Brandon Rush. ...

Jayhawk Flashback: Oklahoma State, 2/27/05

Jesse Newell

This week's Jayhawk Flashback surely has to be one of the highest-ranked on Kansas coach Bill Self's victory list. Just listen to his comments after his seventh-ranked Jayhawks took down fourth-ranked Oklahoma State on Feb. 27, 2005. "I don't think I've ever been a part of a better basketball game. ...

Jayhawk Flashback: Oklahoma, 2/23/98

Jesse Newell

The Jayhawk Flashback returns this week, and we had to go relatively deep into the archives for this one: KU vs. Oklahoma on Feb. 23, 1998. I would consider it one of the most memorable Senior Night performances in Allen Fieldhouse history, though the outstanding effort didn't come from a ...

Jayhawk Flashback: Georgia Tech, 1/1/2005

Jesse Newell

Unfortunately for Kansas fans, there's no way fast forward to next year's football and basketball seasons. In the meantime, I figured we might as well go ahead and take a look back. This will be the first installment of "Jayhawk Flashback." The idea with this blog will be to dip ...

Harrison Barnes and Trevor Releford: Day 3 of the Jayhawk Invitational

Jesse Newell

At 6-foot-6, top-rated recruit Harrison Barnes may look like a small forward and play like a small forward. But he’ll tell you he’s not. “Actually,” he said on Sunday, “I consider myself a guard.” Fair enough. http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/May/03/Barnes.jpg Though Barnes is the top-ranked small forward in the class of 2010 in ...

Day 2 of the Jayhawk Invitational

Jesse Newell

Had a chance to watch one game from both KU commit Royce Woolridge and KU target Bradley Beal at the Jayhawk Invitational today. Here’s the breakdown, starting with Beal. Bradley Beal (Class of 2011) Stat line: 17 points, 5-for-15 shooting, 1-for-3 three-point shooting, 6-for-6 free throws, four rebounds, three assists, ...

Woolridge vs. Barnes: Day 1 of the Jayhawk Invitational

Jesse Newell

The first reaction after watching most recruits is to overhype them. We're all guilty of it. There were over 2,000 fans crammed into Haskell's Coffin Complex, and I can guarantee you the KU fans didn't go there to report back to their friends, "Well, Royce Woolridge is an OK player." ...

The Ultimate Fantasy Draft, 2009 KU football style

Jesse Newell

If you could pick one former Jayhawk football player, in his prime, to join the 2009 KU football team to give it the best shot to win the Big 12 North, who would you pick? Obviously, you could look at this a lot of different ways. Would you take the ...
