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 ...

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. • ...

What caught my eye at Day 1 of Fall Practice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/aug/02/238685/ It began with conditioning tests at 6 a.m. this morning and was followed by team and position meetings not long after. But now, in the 100-plus degree heat on a sunny August afternoon, the 2012 Jayhawks are on the field. The first official practice of the season began around ...

My last stab at predicting the depth chart

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2012/apr/28/ku-spring-game/91774/ Sometime around 2 p.m. Wednesday, Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis will hand out his first updated depth chart since before spring practice and, as Weis has promised, a lot of the names written on it figure to be different.

Jayhawks left off of media's preseason all-Big 12 teams

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2012/apr/19/ku-football-open-practice/91635/ The media’s picks for preseason all-Big 12 honors were released today, and, probably to no one’s surprise, the first-team lists did not include any Jayhawks.
