Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/feb/16/249628/ Saturday afternoon news broke that the Texas Longhorns were prepared to move on from men's basketball coach Rick Barnes after 17 seasons. Regardless of whether it goes down as a firing, a resignation or a force-out, the mere fact that Barnes is moving on and the UT job is ...

What caught my eye at Day 3 of KU football's 2015 Spring practices

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2015/mar/28/289222/ Here's the deal about Saturday's 10 a.m. KU football practice which wound up lasting three hours and featured a — it neither looked like an early-morning practice nor one that took place on the third day of spring ball. The energy was way up, even by David Beaty's standards, ...

What caught my eye at Day 2 of KU football's 2015 Spring practices

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2015/mar/27/289117/ Day 2 of KU Football's spring practices brought more of the same elements that we saw on Day 1 on Tuesday — lots of energy, impressive tempo and fiery coaches getting after guys in both good moments and bad. By far, though, the most memorable aspect of the day ...

What caught my eye at Day 1 of KU football's 2015 Spring practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/24/kansas-spring-football-practice/110374/ Tuesday marked the third time I've seen a new coaching staff kick off spring practices with the KU football program and the one thing that stood out above all else was that there was very little about Tuesday that looked a spring practice at all. The coaches and players ...

A dozen Jayhawks I'm eager to watch during spring football

Matt Tait

Today marks the opening day of the first spring football season under new KU football coach David Beaty. And although there's still more than five months ahead for this program to get ready for the 2015 season, a good chunk of the work will begin starting today as the new ...

The Day After: Waived by the Wheat Shockers

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/22/kansas-v-wichita-state/110365/ If you really think about it, Sunday's 78-65 loss to Wichita State was probably about as fitting of an end for this Kansas team as anything. The problems that plagued the Jayhawks all year were the same ones that showed up against the Shockers — no mental edge, a ...

The Day After: Advancement in the NCAA Tournament

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/20/kansas-basketball-vs-new-mexico-state/110291/ It's been a while since I remember seeing the Kansas University basketball team play such a care-free first-round NCAA Tournament game. Typically, in recent years, the Jayhawks have been a little tight and struggled to get going during the early rounds. But that was not the case during Friday's ...

The Day After: Edged out by Iowa State

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/14/kansas-basketball-v-isu-big-12-tournament/110171/ We'll never know how Bill Self reacted behind closed doors but here's guessing he took Saturday's 70-66 Big 12 title game loss to Iowa State pretty hard. Not just because KU lost and not even because it lost a game it probably should've won. But because for a half ...

The Day After: Battering the Bears

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/13/kansas-v-baylor-big-12-touranment/110129/ Three games in three days... That's what the Jayhawks will have played following Saturday's Big 12 championship game against Iowa State, a destination they reached with a 62-52 victory over fourth-seeded Baylor in Friday's semifinals. There was some talk among fans about whether KU, which is banged up at ...

The Day After: Scorned Frogs

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/12/kansas-basketball-v-tcu-big-12-tournament/110110/ There was very little pretty basketball involved in Thursday's 64-59 victory by top-seeded Kansas over No. 9 seed TCU in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. But even as hard as it was to watch the game through all of the whistles and mistakes, ...
