Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/sep/19/241464/ The Jayhawks practiced inside Memorial Stadium today and, during the time I was there, I watched junior running back **James Sims** pretty closely. Here’s what I saw: • Lots of energy and excitement • He was eager and willing to jump to the front of the line to lead ...

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/sep/18/241406/ To be fair, I received a copy of KU’s updated depth chart at Charlie Weis’ news conference earlier this afternoon. But just because I had a head start did not mean that I didn’t notice quite a few of the new looks during Wednesday’s practice. Rather than leading with ...

Monday Rewind: TCU

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2012/sep/15/ku-football-v-tcu/93310/ Before we look back at what went right and what went wrong during last Saturday’s 20-6 loss to TCU, let’s get one thing out of the way right up front: The 15-yard, personal foul penalty for “hitting a defenseless receiver” called on KU safety Bradley McDougald midway through the ...

What caught my eye at Wednesday's practice: Sept. 12

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/sep/12/241066/ Today’s Kansas University football practice carried with it the same upbeat energy and fast tempo as Tuesday’s, but one thing that caught my eye was that a lot of it was coming from the coaching staff. Sure, that’s their job, to motivate, encourage, even intimidate these players into working ...

Realignment Today: What Notre Dame's move to the ACC (in everything but football and hockey) means for the Big 12

Matt Tait

Today’s announcement that Notre Dame will move its non-football sports to the ACC has sent a large faction of Big 12 fans into a frenzy. Although I understand why this is the case on the surface, I’m not so sure the announcement is worth getting worked up about. For starters, ...

What caught my eye at Tuesday's practice: Sept. 11

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/sep/11/241001/ All eyes — at least both of mine — at Tuesday’s practice were on Kansas University quarterback **Dayne Crist**, who, earlier in the day, told reporters that, after a Monday evening chat with KU coach Charlie Weis, he vowed to have more fun starting today. It’s tough to see ...

Monday Rewind: Rice

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/photos/galleries/2012/sep/08/kansas-v-rice/93174/ A friend and fellow reporter floated an interesting question my way shortly after the Kansas University football team somehow lost to Rice despite having a decent grip on things for most of the game last Saturday. The question: Did KU’s 25-24, last-second loss to Rice rank as one of ...

What caught my eye at Wednesday's practice: Sept. 5

Matt Tait

http://www2.kusports.com/users/photos/2012/sep/05/240703/ Wednesday’s Kansas University football practice was moved inside to Anschutz Sports Pavilion, which offered a little bit of relief from the heat, but mostly in the way of shielding the Jayhawks from the sun and not in overall temperature. As thermostats outside continued to push the 100-degree mark, the ...
