Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/nov/02/ku-football-v-texas/100614/ Say what you want about Kansas University quarterback Jake Heaps' season, skills and struggles as KU's quarterback.

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2013/oct/26/ku-football-v-baylor/100507/ Typically, these Monday Rewinds are spent looking back at a certain aspect of KU's most recent game that either impacted the outcome, added to a trend or simply was eye-opening enough — good or bad — to merit further discussion. And while last week's loss to Baylor certainly included ...

Keegan vs. Tait: Week 7

Matt Tait

Keegan and I combined to finish just two games over .500 last week, an embarrassing effort that has both of us reeling and feeling the need to make up for it big-time this week. We finally have a full slate of Big 12 games to pick this week and added ...

Monday Rewind - Oklahoma: Return of the running game a good step, but can KU keep it going?

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.
