Matt Tait

There aren't a whole lot of details out there about this event, which is slated to take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday on the lawn of Watson Library on KU's campus, but the KU video department put this video together and its intent is clear. First-year ...

What caught my eye at Day 11 of KU football's 2015 spring practices

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2015/apr/17/290244/ Friday's spring practice for the KU football team — No. 11 of 15 — kicked off with strength coach Je'Ney Jackson sending his guys back to the goal line after a lackluster breakdown that followed their warm-up. “We're about to scrimmage, fellas,” Jackson and other coaches yelled. “Have some ...

What caught my eye at Day 10 of KU football's 2015 spring practices

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2015/apr/16/290184/ I'm not sure why but I've kind of overlooked the defensive line this spring — at least in terms of how often I've watched them work at practice. Maybe it's because we've heard so much about how the D-Line is one of the strengths of the team and so ...

Sounds like some time as a Small Forward is in Perry Ellis' future

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2015/feb/02/286236/ Through his first three seasons as a Jayhawk, we've seen KU forward Perry Ellis do just about everything. He's been good in the post and hit from the outside. He's shown the ability to put the ball on the deck and create for himself and score by hitting the ...

What caught my eye at Day 8 of KU football's 2015 spring practices

Matt Tait

No need to be alarmed, but Friday's eighth practice of the spring session for the Kansas University football program may have been the first in which special teams coach Gary Hyman did not sport his signature look of a turtleneck and pants. According to one KU official, who also noticed ...

Wayne Selden announcement seems unnecessary

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2014/oct/02/279850/ Let me start by saying I thought Wayne Selden's announcement — via press release — that he was returning to Kansas University for his junior season was handled perfectly. Selden, who enjoyed a solid freshman season but took a step back in a few areas as a sophomore, sounded ...

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2015/feb/02/286225/ With Cliff Alexander officially announcing his decision to leave school after one season on Tuesday, we can finish the chapter of Kansas University's one-and-done players, at least for another year. Alexander and teammate Kelly Oubre, who announced his decision to turn pro a week earlier, become the sixth and ...

What caught my eye at Day 6 & 7 of KU football's 2015 spring practices

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2015/apr/07/289685/ Other than the 80-plus degree temperatures that made the Memorial Stadium turf feel like it would in the middle of a summer day, the main thing that jumped out to me at Monday and Tuesday's sixth and seventh spring practices for the KU football program was the attention to ...

Analysts expect KU hoops to be right in the mix in 2015-16

Matt Tait

The 2014-15 college basketball season may just have ended — in thrilling fashion, no less; I mean, how about those Kentucky-Wisconsin and Duke-Wisconsin games to finish things off! — but there are plenty of people already looking ahead to the 2015-16 season, which is still six months away. The folks ...
