Kansas Jayhawks site celebrating boobs in danger (pics)

kansas-jayhawks-boobs

The Kansas Jayhawks have a very special fan site out there. However, it’s in danger of going away. The University of Kansas has some issues with it. They’re okay with the existence of KU Boobs. They’re just not okay with them selling merchandise with the Kansas Jayhawks logo on it. KU Boobs does donate a lot of the money raised from the selling of their wristbands to research fighting breast cancer so you have to give them that.

Pretty much any product you endorse can be sold by breasts. And breasts sell themselves in any ad, website, blog post. Some of the Kansas Jayhawks fan pictures actually have the girls faces in them; most don’t.

#73 Kansas Jayhawks: College Football 77 in 77

kansas-jayhawks-boobs

New regimes take time, so maybe the Kansas Jayhawks 2012 will be more of just a build towards 2013? Can’t be worse than the 2-10, 0-8 in conference 2011 campaign?

Charlie Weis comes in to take over the college football program, and you know what that means? Weis, front butt and all sandwiches Turner Gill with Mark Mangino as the last three KU coaches. When you have one normal sized guy sandwiched between two 400-pounders, it’s not really a sandwich it’s more like that disgusting artery clogging monstrosity they serve at the Indiana state fair: a pound of hamburger meat stuck between two grilled cheeses for bread and macaroni and cheese.

You had a heart attack just reading about it, and I’m guessing the sandwich must be a staple of the Mangino-Weis diet. And oh yeah, don’t expect KU to be very good at football this year.

Perry Ellis helps restock loaded Kansas Jayhawks squad

Kansas Jayhawks super-recruit Perry Ellis. Yes, his name is exactly like the famous clothing designer, so will he be a fit at the Phog? Is he dressed for success at the level of big time college basketball? (c’mon you knew I was going to do some stupid clothing/designer pun, if the suit fits, wear it!)

Ellis is a 6-8 forward center from Wichita Heights who talked about why he choose to stay home close to KU.

“I’ve felt most comfortable there, they’ve been recruiting me since my eighth grade year, so I went there all the time,” he told me at the McDonald’s All-American game.

Jimmie Johnson at Kansas Speedway: NASCAR’s version of the Jayhawks

jimmie-johnson

Jimmie Johnson‘s October 2011 victory at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City happened at an opportune time in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, but just like the University of Kansas Jayhawks college basketball team, which resides about 30 miles west of the speedway on I-70, the win wasn’t enough to pull off another championship.

But Johnson’s stats in Kansas, like the Jayhawks, are impressive, and include multiple championships, like the Jayhawks. What few may not remember was that those championships would not have happened without the help of some local businessmen. Brothers Stan and Randy Herzog, owners of a St. Joseph, Mo.-based company, were Johnson’s early team owners in his off-road racing days.

Kansas Jayhawks future NBAers: Tyshawn Taylor, Jeff Withey

When it comes to future NBA players on the Kansas Jayhawks roster, it of course starts with Thomas Robinson, the go-to-guy and likely top 5 pick in June.

But there are two guys you saw in the national title game last night who have professional potential too: point guard Tyshawn Taylor and Center Jeff Withey. Both have had their pluses and minuses highlighted and magnified on the national stage this March.

Jayhawks Coach Bill Self has Shirt Deserving of its Own Post

Where do you begin upon looking at this picture of Kansas Jayhawks Coach Bill Self? Well, when you recruited Deron Williams and the rest of the guys who brought the Illini to the 2005 National title game, you can wear whatever shirt you want; no matter how Jersey Shore/ecto cooler in solid rayon form/homosexual environmentalist fund-raiser the shirt looks. (h/t to Kitchen KC)

We’ve had a lot of posts on college basketball, but we’ve never devoted a whole post to a shirt first.

Kansas Jayhawks Look to Rock-Chalk Their Way to Houston

Choke artists. If there were two words to describe the Kansas Jayhawks under coach Bill Self those two may be it. The Jayhawks have ruined many brackets through the years from their first round losses to Bucknell and Bradley to their did-that-really-just-happen second round exit to Northern Iowa last year.

That’s why, when Kansas only led by four at halftime against 16th-seeded Boston University, people everywhere held their breath. KU, with the exception of the 2008 national title, has been known to choke in tourney time and what’s scary for those Jayhawk fans is that the Regional matchups look like the perfect trap games.

Starting with their Friday night game against Atlantic-10 postseason champion Richmond, Kansas could get to Houston by playing two Regional games against double-digit seeds. No number one seed has anything close to that easy but that’s not to say that Richmond is totally incapable.
