Breaking down the Big 12 Tournament, game by game...

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2014/mar/12/270362/ It doesn't take one of the players or coaches involved in this year's Big 12 men's basketball tournament in Kansas City, Mo., to tell you just how wide open and difficult the event figures to be this year. Of course, it doesn't hurt to hear from them either, and ...

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2014/mar/12/270345/ There's a heck of a reunion taking place in the Mile High City and, believe it or not, at the center of it are a couple of former Kansas University football players. When news broke Tuesday night that the Denver Broncos had reached an agreement with free-agent cornerback Aqib ...

What caught my ear on Day 3 of KU football's spring practices

Matt Tait

The Kansas University football team went through its third day of spring practices on Tuesday — the first of the spring in full pads — and, although we weren't able to watch any of the action, we did get our first chance to talk with a few of the players ...

Embiid absence a big blow for KU basketball, but not all hope is lost

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/2013/sep/25/262061/ It's crazy to think that the next piece of significant news we get about Kansas University freshman Joel Embiid could come with him sitting at a table in the Allen Fieldhouse media room, a microphone in front of face and his decision about the NBA on the tip of ...

The Day After: Morgantown Madness

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/mar/08/kansas-basketball-v-west-virginia/103132/ The Kansas University basketball team's latest game — a 92-86 loss at West Virginia on Saturday — seems to be a classic example of one that can be looked at completely differently by two very different groups of people. The pessimists will say that the Jayhawks were awful, embarrassing ...

What caught my ear on Day 1 of KU football's spring practices

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2014/mar/06/270099/ No open practices this spring for the Kansas football program, so the "What caught my eye" blogs of the past are going to have to be replaced by these "What caught my ear" blogs until we can see these guys play for ourselves. I should be able to bring ...

The Day After: Texas Tech

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/mar/05/kansas-basketball-v-texas-tech-senior-night/103057/ A home game against an overmatched Texas Tech team proved to be just the tonic the Kansas University men's basketball team needed to get over its tough loss at Oklahoma State last weekend. Behind a monster night from Tarik Black and the good vibes that always come with Senior ...

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/jan/13/kansas-basketball-v-iowa-state/101901/ Now that Wichita State has completed the perfect regular season, it seems that people are starting to really wonder if the Shockers have what it takes to get back to the Final Four and threaten to become college basketball's first perfect team since Bob Knight's 1976 Indiana squad ran ...

Sizing up KU football's upcoming Quarterback battle

Matt Tait

Despite the disappointing numbers that have been put up by Kansas University quarterbacks during the past few seasons, it's still the position everybody wants to talk about — for better or worse — and one that, at Kansas, has more drama and intrigue than at any time since the QB ...

The Day After: A sad Saturday at Oklahoma State

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2014/mar/01/kansas-basketball-v-oklahoma-state/102982/ It's hard to imagine that the day after this one was anything but somber for the Kansas University basketball team, which clinched the outright Big 12 title thanks to losses by Texas and Iowa State, lost at Oklahoma State after holding a 10-point lead midway through the second half. ...
