He lied? Gee, Erik, you must be racist. You need to understand that the truth doesn’t matter anymore. It’s out of style. If you merely state the truth, instead of encouraging deadly behavior, that means you are a hate-monger. Like the President, you should care far more what people say about YOU. So get it […]

KU’s basketball team was nothing special during their 81-72 win against TCU last Saturday. But the Jayhawks weren’t terrible either. Coach Self’s team moved their record to 11-3 in the Big 12 and they still were all alone in first place. The most encouraging aspect of the TCU game was the outstanding play of freshman […]

The Art of Lying

February 18, 2015

A comment by Erik Shupe He lied. President Obama was always for gay marriage, he never opposed it, and the only reason he didn’t make that perfectly clear when he was running for President was because that particular stance didn’t sit well with the African-American voting bloc. What has to be the biggest surprise in […]

Kansas tightened their grip on the Big 12 basketball championship with their 74-64 win against Baylor last Saturday. But as a famous man once said, “It isn’t over ‘till it’s over.” KU is 10-2 in the Big 12 and the only team standing in their way is Iowa State with an 8-4 record. All of […]

Step it Up!

I come from a long line of pacers. With ten kids in my family, we had more children than chairs when I was growing up. Our motto was “On your feet, lose your seat.” Plus I walked uphill both ways to school every day, including home and back for lunch. It was so far, it’s […]

Kansas basketball teams have been plagued by one negative characteristic during the last decade; however, there have been many more positives during that same time. In the loss at Oklahoma State last Saturday, that negative reared its ugly head. The Jayhawks had 18 turnovers in a game they should have won. But it’s hard to […]

President Obama recently submitted a $4 trillion budget. My advice to Republicans is to send it back to him with the message that it is not enough. Tell President Obama they know he wants more and they are prepared to let him have it. Have John Boehner go to the public and tell them that […]

It isn’t like it used to be. When Clyde Lovellette, Bill Hougland, Bob Kenney, Bill Lienhard, Dean and Al Kelley, Charlie Hoag, and B.H. Born were playing for KU and Ernie Barrett, Jack Stone, Lew Hitch, Ed Head, Jim Iverson, Bob Rousey, and Dick Knostman were key players at K-State; the basketball games in the […]

Bait and Switch in the Coffee Mug

February 4, 2015

By Dorothy Rosby It’s the dream that unites non-coffee drinkers everywhere: If only coffee could taste as good as it smells. My father made the coffee when I was growing up, and we all loved waking up to that aroma. But he was the only one in the family who drank it. That should tell […]

Opposing basketball teams are better off playing Kansas before – rather than after – the semester break. When Coach Bill Self has three uninterrupted weeks of practice, the improvement in the Jayhawks is always noteworthy. This season is no exception. KU played superb basketball in the 75-62 win over Texas at Austin; the Jayhawks’ fundamental […]
