That's an extremely misleading headline. It makes it sound like Daniels is boasting, when it's not at all the way he said it.

The description of his athleticism and intensity makes him sound a little like another Christian Braun.

I like the reference to the troubles, Brett.

Congrats to Sam Burt! It's people like him who can make all Jayhawks everywhere proud!

Things always sound go great in the preseason, but the natural question is, if he is so talented, why didn't he see the field at Minnesota?

"But as we saw with Baylor last season, none of the other teams can be discounted."

As much as I would love to be wrong, I would argue that KU can definitely be discounted. A bowl game would be thrilling enough, but let's not get ridiculous with thinking there's the slightest hope of challenging for the conference title.

What's the deal with going back to the huge picture at the top? To whoever's in charge, please return the format to how it was before!!!

I hope to hell you're right, Daniel, because I'd be thrilled if we could join the Big X. But I think there's still the issue of us being tied to KSU.

Is unicron related to omicron? Just wondering.

There are two things that seem ridiculous to me about the prevailing wisdom that youth is almost always better:

1. What percentage of players actually stay with the same team that drafted them well into their prime? With all of the player movement because of trades and free agency, it's often better to draft someone who's closer to a finished product than someone who's raw and will take years to reach his potential.

2. I think a lot more players are having longer careers now, so does a difference of two or three years really mean that much in the long run?
