Hatfield adjusting to McCoy

May 27, 2015

By Dorothy Rosby Have you seen that photo of the pig cuddling with the tiger cub on the Internet? Or the young leopard nuzzling the golden retriever? How sweet! My pets would never pose for a photo like that, and the caption wouldn’t be “Friends” either. Oil and water is more like it. Or Hatfield […]

Just when it looked like he was going to come up short in the recruiting department, Kansas basketball coach Bill Self, once again, plucked the ripest plum in the orchard.  Cheick Diallo signed a letter-of-intent with KU last week.

Mr. Huelskamp Goes to Washington

April 15, 2015
