Big Blue Linkapalooza: Kansas Week Edition

Tyshawn Taylor will be the man for the Kansas Jayhawks this year.
Tyshawn Taylor will be the man for the Kansas Jayhawks this year.

This morning, the Linkapalooza looks at the upcoming game with Kansas, the continuing travails of the Kentucky Wildcats football team, and the very early returns on the college basketball season.

So far, in basketball, the SEC is a mixed bag.  Vandy lost yesterday at home to Cleveland St., and Mississippi State lost at home last week to the Akron Zips.  Everyone else in the SEC so far has held serve.  Of the big six conferences, only the SEC, Big 10 and Pac-12 have losses.  The SEC and Pac-12 have major upsets so far:  the SEC with Vandy and Mississippi St., and the Pac-12 with UCLA, who lost the other night to Loyola Marymount.

On a side note, I am very glad basketball is here.

  • Ira Combs says Phillips should keep it simple.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again right now . The college coaching fraternity is the sports worlds worst level of coaching to over analyze it's players abilities or in laymans terms they over coach . They can think themselves into trouble many more times instead of just giving an athlete an opportunity to play their way on or off the field or court .
  • Newton still injured, Smith to remain the starter.

    Phillips said Newton will be available to finish Saturday’s game in an emergency situation but not for extended playing time because he’s still having trouble pushing off his sprained right ankle.
