Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2013/apr/02/252452/ Tuesday marked the first practice of the spring that was open to the media and instead of the usual 20 minutes of stretching and warm-ups, KU coach Charlie Weis opened the door and pulled back the curtain for the entire hour-and-40-minute session.

KU becomes pioneer in using virtual reality to enhance football program

Why KU-Carolina won't happen

Matt Tait

"Expert Picks" interesting to read but how much do they mean to you?

Matt Tait

Blind Bracket pick 'em contest opens eyes, offers different look at NCAA Tournament field

Matt Tait

Because last Saturday was my first chance to get a quick glance at KU's new-look football program, my "What caught my eye" feature ran a little long. So here's the second part of a list of things that stood out to me as I took in about an hour of ...

What caught my eye at Saturday's practice: March 9

Matt Tait

Before I get into the specifics of what I saw at Saturday's KU football practice, let me explain one thing. We were told before the spring began that the media would get one day to go out and watch practice but we don't know yet when that day will be. ...

Matt Tait

Here's a quick video I put together from today's KU football clinic with about 100 Special Olympians.
