Tale of the Tait

The Day After: Oklahoma and the clincher

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/24/kansas-basketball-v-oklahoma/102877/ It would have been almost impossible for the Kansas University men's basketball team to follow up its nearly flawless performance against Texas over the weekend with a similar showing against Oklahoma on Big Monday. But that might wind up being a good thing for the Jayhawks, who were not ...

The Day After: Texas

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/22/kansas-basketball-v-texas/102802/ I don't know about you, but I definitely did not see a 31-point Kansas victory over Texas coming when I walked into Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday evening for what was billed as a key Big 12 Conference clash with potential title implications. After watching Texas manhandle Kansas inside in ...

The Day After: TCU at AFH

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/15/kansas-basketball-v-tcu/102650/ Perry Ellis was sensational and the Kansas University offense hung a season-best 95 points on an overmatched TCU squad in a 30-point victory at Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday. It was exactly the kind of game the Jayhawks needed to bounce back from a tough, overtime road loss at Kansas ...

Proposed college football rule change for 2014 worth keeping an eye on

Matt Tait

An interesting rule proposal for the 2014 college football season could impact the way Kansas University and others defend the fast-paced offenses that have created havoc during recent seasons. According to a report on the NCAA's official website, the proposed rule suggests that a five-yard delay-of-game penalty would be enforced ...

A deeper look at KU's three-point shooting and how it compares to recent years

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/08/kansas-basketball-v-west-virginia/102472/ If you've been paying attention at all, you know by now that this year's Kansas basketball team has left a little to be desired when it comes to three-point shooting. It's not that the 2013-14 Jayhawks don't have solid three-point shooters — Brannen Greene and Conner Frankamp have pure ...

The Day After: Kansas State, Part Deux

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/10/kansas-basketball-v-kansas-state/102548/ It was a wild night in Manhattan, with the home team — not to mention the atmosphere — winning out in an 85-82 overtime victory for Kansas State, just the fourth win for the Wildcats over Kansas in the past 52 games. Despite 10 ties and 20 lead changes, ...

The Day After: West Virginia

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/08/kansas-basketball-v-west-virginia/102458/ After a 1-1 road trip through Texas, the Jayhawks returned to the friendly confines of Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday and came away with a hard-fought 83-69 victory over West Virginia. The game was much closer and tougher than the final score indicates and the Jayhawks (18-5 overall, 9-1 Big ...

The Day After the day after: Baylor

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/04/kansas-basketball-v-baylor/102377/ Apologies for the one-day delay on “The Day After,” folks. Yesterday's national signing day football festivities kept me occupied from sun-up to sun-down. If you missed any of that, check out our signing day blog that ran for nearly 12 hours and this signing day wrap-up story that explains ...

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2014/feb/05/268501/ **3:26 p.m. Update:** Just wanted to clarify one thing before I jump in and write something up for tomorrow's paper: KU's total haul in this class — counting mid-year guys and D-I transfers — is 25.... 15 high school signees, 8 juco signees and 2 D-I transfers. Because the ...

The Day After: Texas

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/feb/01/kansas-basketball-v-texas/102285/ It may be Super Bowl Sunday, but there certainly was nothing super about the Jayhawks' 81-69 loss at Texas on Saturday. Although the Longhorns holding a double-digit lead for the majority of the game came as a bit of a surprise, the fact that Kansas lost was not all ...
