Roles played: Before acting, KU senior Wesley left mark as key...

Off the court, Justin Wesley is best known in Lawrence for his film portrayal of Wilt Chamberlain in the recent movie release, “Jayhawkers.” On the court, he’s the walk-on transfer from Lamar University who averaged 8.6 minutes a game — 7.8 minutes in Big 12 action — for KU’s 2011-12 NCAA runner-up/Big 12 championship team.

Column: Weis makes winning moves in offseason

Seven years as a college football head coach and 10 years of wisdom later, humility has replaced fantasy for Kansas University coach Charlie Weis. Column by Tom Keegan

Pierson returns to Jayhawks' lineup for spring football

Plenty of elements contributed to the offensive struggles of Kansas University’s football team during the 2013 season. The loss of Tony Pierson to injury might have been one of the biggest. As Pierson, who has completed the transition from running back to wide receiver, prepares for his final spring practices as a Jayhawk, he does so healthy. By Matt Tait

Around the Big 12 - Week 9

Kansas clinches outright title; Dogfight for second place; TCU still winless Have we received our trophy yet? Despite a disappointing finish to the week, Kansas claimed sole possession of first place at the end of the year no matter how the last two games turn out. Some might say that Iowa State, Oklahoma, and Texas gave KU the title, but I’m not one of them! KU is now the only team in the Big 12 with a winning record in conference road games. They won that outright title fair and square by be

KU begins search for starting QB

There’s an old aphorism about quarterback competitions, one you hardly hear from the head coach. If you don’t know who your quarterback is, it’s probably because you don’t have one.Kansas coach Charlie Weis is familiar with the saying, of course. In fact, he’s been using it a lot lately. He uttered it a few months ago, before he handed over the reins of the Kansas offense to new coordinator John Reagan. And he said it on Monday, three days before the Jayhawks were set to open the third spring o

Jayhawks begin search for a starting quarterback

For the first time since Weis arrived in Lawrence, the KU quarterback job is an open competition heading into spring practice. And for a program coming off five straight losing seasons, this is both liberating and terrifying. There are no sacred cows on this roster, no transfer quarterbacks who assumed the starting job before their first snap.

Self: KU never planned to cut down nets at OSU

Bill Self never planned to cut down the nets at Gallagher-Iba Arena had Kansas won at Oklahoma State on Saturday. He never said as much, either. But that didn’t stop Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart from implying, during a postgame interview on ESPN, that the Cowboys had seen such a quote from the KU coach. “Before the game, the coaches showed us a quote,“ Smart said in a televised interview on ESPN. “Bill Self said he was coming here, cutting down our nets, and he was going to win it outright

Joel Embiid to Miss Final Two Games of Regular Season

The 7-footer will look to get healthy for postseason play. Kansas center Joel Embiid will miss the final two games of the college basketball regular season, according to Bill Self in his weekly interview with the Time Warner Cable Sports Channel. Embiid will be sidelined for the final home game against Texas Tech on Wednesday and the final road game against West Virginia on Saturday due to a lower back strain. From the Lawrence Journal World: “I think he’s OK for the long term, don’t get me wro

Self denies Smart's allegation on Monday [$]

Kansas Clinches Outright Big 12 Title In Loss to Oklahoma State...

I tweeted this during the game, but the fact that Kansas turned it over on 31% of their possessions and didn't lose by 30 is either a sign of how good they are or how bad Oklahoma State is. I lean towards the former, as the Jayhawks continuously coughed up the ball against the Cowboys and still almost came away with a win. My question is this, though: of those turnovers, the vast majority were coughed up by Kansas with little or no coercion from Oklahoma State. The bad news there, of course, is
