Dayne Crist not the answer at QB

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis We’re only one-third of the way into the 2012 football season, and Kansas finds itself in the same position as it has for the past few years: hopeless, with a long season ahead. This KU team appears to have improved in most facets (mostly on the defensive side), but it hasn’t shown in the win column. The Jayhawks might be more competitive against superior teams this season, but moral victories aren’t good enough in college football. A main reason for the Jayhawks getting off to a 1-3 start is the subpar play of senior transfer Dayne Crist at quarterback. Crist has only completed 48 percent of his passes, with just 763 yards…

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…

Despite Another Loss, Kansas Defense Making Strides

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis Coming off a devastating loss at home in week 2 to Rice, nobody knew what to expect from Kansas going into a matchup with 16th ranked TCU, and certainly didn’t anticipate a close game going into the 4th quarter. The Jayhawk defense came out fast and furious, swarming to the football, getting stops when they needed to and displaying a bend-but-don’t-break mentality. KU forced a turnover on the first two possessions, one on TCU’s bad snap to quarterback Casey Pachall, which rolled practically halfway across the field and was recovered by Josh Williams, and the other on a forced fumble by Bradley McDougald, who had 12 tackles, a sack and two forced…

Blau’s Two Cents: Week 3

blau's two cents

By: Alex Blau So, here we are again. Charlie Weis is already finding himself in a tough spot as the Jayhawks dropped their first game of the season last weekend to Rice.   Things for this week are looking rather bleak as well. The Jayhawks are facing a TCU team that is ranked in the top 25 with a very good quarterback and an above average defense.   The Jayhawks are 26-point underdogs coming into the game this weekend.   I am by no means expecting a win this week but am very interested to see how this team is going to respond. The past 3 seasons when the Hawks start to lose, they continue…

Bear Cave: Uphill Battle Ahead for Weis and Company

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis It’s time to take a step back and assess the damage. Just two weeks ago, the Kansas football team was in good spirits and more confident than it had been heading into the season in the past 3 years. Kansas opened the season with a win that wasn’t anything to write home about despite wins coming few and far between recently. Now, after blowing an 11-point 2nd half lead in a crippling loss to an underwhelming Rice Owls squad, things are looking pretty bleak at the Anderson Family Football Complex. The fact of the matter is, Charlie Weis might have bit off more than he can chew, at least for the time…

Jayhawks focusing on accountability after Rice let down

KJHK-Sports-436x360

By Trevor Graff Kansas fans left Memorial Stadium after Saturday’s matchup with the Rice Owls feeling a lot like the Jayhawk fans of old. The fans that spent the majority of their time breaking down losses and saying wait until next year. Chris Boswell, the Owls’ Lou Groza Award watch list kicker, blasted a 45-yard field goal through the uprights with two seconds remaining to seal the Jayhawk loss 25-24. The Jayhawks led all but the first ten minutes of the game before losing on Boswell’s last second field goal. “Clearly, my biggest disappointment is that we didn’t finish,” said head coach Charlie Weis. “The whole motto for this week was about finishing games, because…
