Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/oct/19/ku-football-v-oklahoma/100328/ It's hard to know if it can be trusted given the inconsistency of the offensive line, but it appears that the Kansas University football team has found its running game again. During last Saturday's loss to 18th-ranked Oklahoma the Jayhawks came out on fire in the first quarter, with ...

Keegan vs. Tait: Week 6

Matt Tait

Despite having three games different last week, there was no real separation gained in our challenge. I mean, yes, I did out-pick Tom once again, but it was only by one game and I have higher standards than that. Still, it's nice to be back in front, even if it ...

Rapid Reaction: Weis handing off offensive game-planning duties a positive sign for KU football

Monday Rewind - TCU: Further examination of KU football's offensive struggles

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/oct/12/ku-v-tcu/100212/ I've spent a lot of time these past three or four weeks asking various members of the Kansas University football team to explain what exactly is causing so many problems for the Jayhawks' offense.

Keegan vs. Tait: Week 5

Matt Tait

After struggling through an entire week of the boss man bragging about his Week 4 perfection, I bounced back and tied the overall standings with a 9-1 mark in Week 4. It's no 10-0 and I understand that, but it was enough to even things up and now we're heading ...

Monday, that number officially was changed to 35,648 and a KU spokesperson said a clerical ...

Monday Rewind - Texas Tech: KU O-Line in need of drastic improvement

Matt Tait

The natives certainly became restless after Saturday's 54-16 slamming by 20th-ranked Texas Tech, and who could blame them? What started in fantastic fashion and, at least for a bit, looked like it could bring an end to KU's 21-game Big 12 losing skid, quickly began to look a lot more ...

Keegan vs. Tait: Week 4

Matt Tait

With a perfect third week, my boss, the veteran, Mr. College Football, Tom Keegan, has climbed into the lead in our Keegan vs. Tait college football pick 'em contest. Now, it's worth pointing out that there's a lonnnngggg way to go in this thing, and he leads by just a ...
