The Recruiting Trail: Kansas can’t catch the Cat

the recuiting trail

By Nick Ratliff   We’re back here on the Recruiting Trail, and there’s so major news to get to this week. Some major things happened in the world of basketball recruiting this week that drastically changed the recruiting landscape for the 2013 class, so let’s get to it.   The major news since my last blog you’ve probably heard if you follow Kansas basketball recruiting even a little. The news is that Anthony “Cat” Barber, the point guard from Hampton, Virginia who has been the most talked about prospect in the short history of this blog, verbally committed to North Carolina State. On the surface, this appears to be a major blow to next year’s…

All The Bacon and Eggs: MLB Playoffs Heating Up

Bacon and Eggs

By Joe Fuentes   MLB Playoffs With only 16 games left in the regular season for baseball, the American League divisional race and National League wild card race is heating up. In each American League division there are at least two teams vying for each division title. In the American League, I think that the Yankees will hold out to win the East, the White Sox will hold on to the Central title, and the Rangers will win the West. The Wild Cards in the American League will be Oakland and the Orioles. I was thinking that the LA Angels would have a shot at the last wild card spot, but they have to play…

The Recruiting Trail: News from the road

the recuiting trail

By Nick Ratliff   Welcome to this week’s edition of the Recruiting Trail. I promise this week’s blog will not be as long as last week’s, but there is still some news to get to this week in the world of Kansas basketball recruiting. Let’s get down to it:   As I discussed in last week’s blog, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self and his staff have been hard at work this week, visiting some of the nation’s top basketball prospects in their homes across the country. At the time that this was written, Self and staff have visited five of the nation’s top 30 players, two of them already committed to the Jayhawks next season….

All The Bacon and Eggs: My Love Letter to the NFL

Bacon and Eggs

By Joe Fuentes   Dear NFL, Oh how I have missed you. It was a difficult summer with the way things ended between us. We both said and did some things we shouldn’t have; Jay Cutler got hurt and ruined the Bears season. But let’s not dwell on things from the past. It’s time for us to turn a new leaf. A new chapter is starting in our relationship. Peyton Manning is finally back, but he’s with a different team. But I have to tell you, he hasn’t missed a missed a beat– orange might just be his new favorite color. The Bears finally got their receiver, well two receivers: Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery….

The Recruiting Trail: Self and staff keeping busy

the recuiting trail

By Nick Ratliff   Welcome to the second edition of the Recruiting Trail blog. There is a TON of information to get into this week, so let’s get right into it: First off, the only real information to give on the football recruiting front is that three in-state players who have already committed to the Jayhawks for the 2013 class attended the season opening win against South Dakota State last Saturday. Quarterbacks Jordan Darling from Shawnee Mission East in Prairie Village (my alma mater, Go Lancers!) and Montell Cozart from Bishop Miege in Roeland Park, KS and tight end Ben Johnson from Basehor-Linwood High School in Basehor, KS were all present at the game, representing…

All The Bacon and Eggs: It’s Finally Back!

Bacon and Eggs

By Joe Fuentes It was a great weekend in sports: college football returned, Manchester United avoided embarrassment, Dwight Howard said thank you to Orlando and the NFL begins Wednesday. So let’s get started:   College Football Is it bad that I left the KU game early? I walked out after the 99 yard touchdown run (which I called by the way) by South Dakota State in the first quarter to put the Jackrabbits up 7-0. I’m sorry, but it was 100 degrees in the stands, there was no shade and our offense couldn’t score on its first two possessions. I had already seen enough. Although, the Jayhawks ended up winning the game, I think it…

The Recruiting Trail: “Cat” in the bag?

the recuiting trail

By: Nick Ratliff Hello and welcome to the Recruiting Trail. My hope for this blog is that it becomes somewhat of an “into the looking glass” kind of experience for all Kansas sports fans, meaning it will be a peak into the near future of KU football and basketball, looking at high school recruits who could wear the Crimson and Blue. In this blog, I’ll lay out when recruits visit KU, some major recruiting rumors, and when a prospect announces a commitment to the University of Kansas. I’ll also give you my insight on how a prospect’s game breaks down and how he may fit into the system at Kansas. This first blog is perfect…
