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…

Gridiron Gesticulations Week 3: USC Me Now?

Gridiron

by john griffin Hey, you know what? It’s not all doom-and-gloom for KU football. The Jayhawk defense played admirably in a 20-6 loss to TCU, forcing 4 turnovers. Though the defense gave up a lot of yardage, they made big plays when it counted. Anyway, onto the rest of the world. More than Luck-y Everyone hates Lane Kiffin, right? Let us taste his salty tears after #2 USC totally blew it against #21 Stanford, losing for the 4th year in a row (I know, right?) 21-14. Matt Barkley may have lost himself the Heisman Saturday night, going a woeful 20-41 with 2 terrible interceptions and no touchdowns. Stanford surprisingly snapped out of their streak of…

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…

Bear Cave: Kansas Football Good and Bad in Opener

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis As a coach, getting your team to perform the way you want them to in the first game of the season isn’t always realistic, especially when it’s the first game of your tenure. This was exactly the case Saturday night at Memorial Stadium, where Kansas prevailed 31-17 over South Dakota State. It was neither pretty nor ugly. We saw the Jayhawk offense put up 263 yards on the ground due mainly to the backfield combination of Tony Pierson and Taylor Cox. We also witnessed the defense providing a horrific flashback to the Turner Gill era, giving up a 99-yard touchdown run to the FCS Jackrabbits in the first quarter. KU also forced…

Gridiron Gesticulations Week 1: Sloppy Starts

Gridiron

By John Griffin So, the Charlie Weis era of Jayhawk football began with a victory. What else happened around the world of college football? Well, prepare for a dollop of creamy knowledge to be dropped onto your crunchy, tortilla brain. Sloppy Top 25 Really, #4 Oklahoma? You beat UTEP 24-7? You needed a pair of 4th quarter touchdowns to put away the Miners? #9 South Carolina: You won 17-13. With 69 yards passing. Against Vanderbilt. Do I have to elaborate? Okay, I do. SC quarterback Connor Shaw had a tough performance, returning to the game after an injury sidelined him. But it’s not like he was lighting it up before he was hurt. #12 Wisconsin:…
