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, ...

The Day After: Almost at Oklahoma

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/07/kansas-basketball-v-oklahoma/110054/ Whether you want to talk about the defensive breakdown in the final seconds or the fact that a short-handed KU team nearly walked out of Lloyd Noble Center on Saturday with a surprising victory, the so-called meaningless final game of the regular season gave us plenty of material. The ...

Spring dates and other KU football notes

Matt Tait

With temperatures warming and March Madness nearly upon us, those in the Kansas University football program have turned their eyes toward upcoming spring practices. First-year KU coach David Beaty announced earlier this week that the Jayhawks would kick off their 15-practice spring schedule on March 24. Beaty's first spring in ...

Former KU pole vaulter Jordan Scott going for gold… and green

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/apr/19/253504/ For most people, the next summer Olympics, set for 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, remain in the distant future. But not for former Kansas University pole vaulter Jordan Scott, a Watkinsville, Georgia, native and 2011 KU grad who hopes to make the U.S. Olympic team for the first ...

The Day After: Revenge against West Virginia

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/mar/03/kansas-basketball-v-west-virginia/109925/ West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said it best when trying to explain how his Mountaineers lost Tuesday night's game at Allen Fieldhouse, 76-69 in overtime to a Kansas team that did not lead one time in the entire second half. Forearms on the table, shoulders slumped, head staring down, ...

The Day After: Out-toughing Texas

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2015/feb/28/kansas-basketball-v-texas/109897/ Now that's the kind of basketball game you expect to see in March, and the Jayhawks and Longhorns brought it to us a day early. Tough, physical basketball. A lot at stake for both teams. Pressure mounting with every tick. Multiple guys making a variety of plays on both ...

Time frame for Cliff Alexander's return remains a mystery

Matt Tait

Very little public information has been released about the situation surrounding Kansas University freshman forward Cliff Alexander, who sat out of Saturday's 69-64 victory over Texas at Allen Fieldhouse after the NCAA made KU officials aware of an eligibility concern surrounding Alexander. Following Saturday's game, KU coach Bill Self admitted ...

A tip of the cap to KU's Jamari Traylor for role in Monday night's court-storming fiasco at K-State

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2015/feb/24/287406/ Lost, at least to some, in the aftermath of K-State's latest court-storming frenzy and all of the opinions and hot takes that followed it, was the admirable restraint shown by Kansas University forward Jamari Traylor. I like Traylor. He's a friendly guy who has his limitations as a basketball ...

The Day After: Punked by the Purple People

Matt Tait

Leading up to Monday's game at Kansas State, I told anyone who would listen that the outcome of that game would tell me a lot about this Kansas basketball team. Go into Manhattan and win and life is good and the Jayhawks would be well on their way toward wrapping ...
