Umm. Scott Drew coaches Baylor. Bryce Drew coaches Vanderbilt.

I believe Norm Cook left after his junior year also.

Matt,
I believe another correction is needed - in P1, Dedrick is listed as the older brother.

A leader until the end - I was at the game Saturday night, and when Devonte was subbed out the last few seconds of the game, he went to the bench and sat next to Malik and Udoka. Each of them put a towel over their heads. When the final horn sounded, Devonte got up and helped both of the other two players up so that they could get in the handshake line. I don't think anyone was hurting more than Devonte was, but he was still leading his teammates. A small moment that I won't forget.

And Bryce, this fall I will be cheering for the Kansas Jayhawk football team. As a graduate and a lifelong fan, my interests are not divided. I am hopeful that the football team gets turned around, under Beatty or someone else. But my loyalty to my university will not waver. Rock Chalk.

Sorry if I missed it somewhere else........what has happened to Schyler Miles? Injuries? Or just another example of Weis' over-sell/under-deliver on football talent evaluations.

Tim,
I couldn't agree more. Every year I fill out my bracket with the Hawks winning it all. Most years it doesn't work out. But I love watching this team, and every year it seems that I have a new set of favorite players. T-Rob's story, the '08 teams wicked defense, Withey blocking everything in sight, Hinrich playing after hurting his ankle, Collison getting a Standing O from Vitale. Now my favorites are Wiggs - what a great representative he has been for KU; Jamari - what a story of perseverance; Tarik - wish it was more than one year. All of these players and coaches get my support. I will be disappointed with the season ends, but it would take a lot more that a loss in the basketball game for me to be disgusted with my Jayhawks. Rock Chalk.

Whining about the survey questions is ridiculous. Two seconds of your time so that you can view good KU BB content from the hometown paper? I am a Lawrence native, KU grad living in Texas. I am glad to have a site to go to that is free to get my daily Hawks updates. I read everything on this site everyday. I don't always agree with The columnists or some or the reader opinions but I appreciate the site. So "click" yes or no and move on.

JB, HEM, Slayer, and others- love your takes. Let the season begin. Rock Chalk.

Just off by 20 years. My bad.

Favorite call - Bob Davis' call of Mario's Miracle.
2nd place - Denny Mathew's call of George Brett's homerun against the Yankees in the 2000 Playoffs.
