@jaybate-1.0 Great story, great read!

"One must first understand how to learn, before they can learn"

This is what I love about your post, they make me think and evaluate my own preconceived notions before moving on. Every once in a while you drop a gem that really opens my eyes, and you did it twice today! Rock Chalk!

Recruiting Perfection: Bragg Or Bust

@globaljaybird Thanks for the link .. I read there that Bragg is going to decide in the late signing period. That is contrary to what I had read elsewhere. Hoping he doesn't wait.

When the music stop, I cannot imagine that one of top post guys doesn't pick KU. The question is if we get two, and the question is if we can get a highly talented, foundational, non-OAD guy -- Bragg seems like the only option on our radar that fits the bill.

Yep, it is inspired madness. Last winter or early spring was my first viewing of it. It was pandemic at the time. :grinning:

Jayhawk Sports News Feeds From Various Sources
Wolves offer Bledsoe max contract

With just days before the start of training camp, the Minnesota Timberwolves are making a final push to acquire restricted free-agent guard Eric Bledsoe in a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns, sources told ESPN.com.

Fruitless contract talks with the Suns soured point guard Eric Bledsoe's appetite for playing in Phoenix. The Wolves are offering Bledsoe the four-year, $63 million maximum level contract that he has been seeking, sources said, but because of cap restrictions, the only way he can join the team as currently constructed is through a sign-and-trade deal. Bledsoe and the Suns have been in a stalemate all summer after the team offered him a four-year, $48 million deal in July.

Sept. 16 local sports briefs: K-State volleyball sweeps SDSU

@Crimsonorblue22 I don't like them either, but I have to say that " Brooke Sassin " is a pretty cool name. Since I am the master of originality (or not) I'm going to go out on a limb and assume her nickname is " Assassin " . :question:

KU coaches sticking with QB Montell Cozart ... for now

One thing I have to say about Coach Weis: he is no longer masking that he has no idea which guys can play and which can't.

How to recruit the next football coach: Pay $1 million for every KU victory.

The guy I wanted when they hired Weis, was from Eastern Illinois, Dino Babers, who left for Bowling Green this year, after he lost his star stud QB Jimmy Garrapolo to a second round pick by the Pats. If that name rings the bell, he's Belichick's back up OB that replaced Brady in the 4th quarter of tonight's MNF beat down by the Chiefs. He's a helluva coach & would have been pennies on the mills that both TG & CW have lavished in. Not only might we have the new BB dorms, we might have even won a couple more games too !!

Weis Era Over.... Clint Bowen 39th KU FB HC

@Crimsonorblue22

In this century KU has had 2 All-American and currently has 7 players in the NFL. I am sure that Bill Snyder mention this while naming the 13 All-American KSU has had in the same time and the 13 players in the NFL, while casually mentioning Jordy Nelson's play for the Packers...just sayin'

KUBUCKETS IS MY FACEBOOK

The link below provides a strong statement and expresses my feelings about the "other guys" blogs and drinking the party line "koolaid." To be more specific Keegan's and Tait's following the party line .... .

italicised text "I realized a while ago that Keegan's columns didn't offer me much useful information about how bad the team was. Same goes for Tait's blogs. But now I'm not going to give Keegan anymore clicks. I'll still visit the site but avoid anything written by Keegan."

Tips for the New KU Buckets site

I added a News Feeds category and I pulled feeds from cjonline, kusports and wichita eagle, but only the cjonline one worked correctly. I'm reaching out to Gary Bedore about the kusports feed as I believe it should work with a small change on their end, and I'll see what I can do about wichita eagle one. This should be a really nice way of pulling our news from other sites in real time without having to manually do it.
