All The Bacon And Eggs: KU Football Preview

Bacon and Eggs

By Joe Fuentes First off, let me introduce myself, I am Joe Fuentes, from the CITY of Chicago, let me be clear, not the ‘Burbs. I am starting my 5th year as a senior at KU, majoring in Communications. I am a co-host on the Friday Night Sports Express on KJHK Friday nights at 6pm. I started college at Holy Cross College, across the street to Notre Dame. After two years I transferred to KU; however I am still a big supporter of the Fighting Irish. As a Northsider from Chicago, I cheer for all major sport teams: Cubs, at times the Sox, Da Bears, and Bulls. Also, I am a huge soccer fan, especially for Manchester…

Calipari Learns From Mistakes, Earns Championship

final-four-new-orleans

By Blake Schuster New Orleans, La. — It was happening again. Down by nine, to John Calipari and against a seemingly unbeatable team, Kansas made its run.  But in the Jayhawks 67-59 national championship loss to Kentucky, it wasn’t a miracle Jayhawk comeback as it was in 2008 — although it felt similar — this time was about Calipari, and the demons he finally exorcised.

This time Calipari’s Kentucky team took the lead early in the first half and never gave it up despite…

The line was long, so was our conversation. But as I was trying to focus on Jay’s comments I found myself more interested in eavesdropping on the chat going on in front of me. Two…

Schuster: Destiny, Not Talent, Will Prevail Monday

By Blake Schuster There’s no question who’s the better team in playing for the National Championship. Kentucky, hands down. If I’m a coach and I have my pick of either team how do I not want Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marquis Teague and Terrance Jones? It’d be a damn shame if John Calipari didn’t finally ascend to the top of the college basketball world. His  —arguably — best team ever doesn’t have weak spots. From day one Kentucky was built for April 2nd, 2012 and every game before it was practice. The Wildcats have just about all that a team needs to earn them the title — but they don’t have everything. They haven’t faced…
