What caught my eye at Day 12 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/13/239447/ Blocking took on an extra emphasis at this morning’s Kansas football practice, the first of two sessions today. Not only did all of the position groups spend a little extra time working on the skill, but the team’s most important blockers — the offensive linemen — worked out with ...

What caught my eye at Day 10 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/11/239356/ The media — and the rest of the free world — had the chance to check out an entire practice Saturday morning, and the longer look at the KU football team gave us a chance to see a little more than stretching and position drills. We watched live hitting, ...

What caught my eye at Day 9 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/10/239307/ It might as well have been called **Jordan Tavai** Day at Kansas University football practice on Friday, as the arrival of the big man from El Camino CC in California, was the only thing on the minds of most media members. Tavai, who arrived late because he was busy ...

What caught my eye at Day 8 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/09/239212/ Thursday morning brought with it the beginning of the second day of two-a-day practices for the Kansas University football team. And there were a couple of good things about it for the Jayhawks. First, it was not too early. Practice did not begin until just after 9 a.m. Second, ...

What caught my eye at Day 7 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/08/239186/ Call me crazy, call me an optimist or call me accurate, either way, I’m telling you that I’m starting to notice some improvement in this year’s Kansas University football team. My football mind is not sharp enough to know the ins and outs of position-by-position techniques, nor is our ...

What caught my eye at Day 6 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/07/239055/ The Kansas University football program’s first day of two-a-days arrived this morning, with the beats at the practice fields blaring by 9 a.m. The 9 a.m. start was the first of two practice sessions that will take place today, but it did not seem as if anyone was dreading ...

What caught my eye at Day 5 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/06/238934/ Monday marked the first day in full pads for the Kansas University football team and you know what that means — time to get more physical. Although most of what we saw during the opening portion of practice was limited to position drills, most of the players hit a ...

What caught my eye at Day 4 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/05/238827/ Sunday was the second day of practice in shoulder pads for the Kansas University football team and, with it, came a little different look at this year’s squad. I’ve heard from football coaches for years that guys who look great in shorts and helmets don’t always necessarily transfer that ...

What caught my eye at Day 3 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/04/238783/ I spent most of my time at today’s practice watching the quarterbacks. I know that’s a little cliche, but, because it is, I often forget to look at them at all. I know we all know that **Dayne Crist** and **Jake Heaps** are former five-star guys, big-time talents, a ...

What caught my eye at Day 2 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/03/238738/ Another day, another practice for the KU football team. While their physical appearance continues to be something many media members marvel at, we’re starting to get used to the bigger bodies and more fit look. With that in mind, here’s what stood out to me on Day 2. • ...
