LAWRENCE - For the second straight season, Kansas coach Charlie Weis has taken the reins from a highly-touted transfer quarterback and handed them to an unproven but more mobile signal-caller.
CHICAGO - Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose is out for the remainder of the season. The team said that Rose had successful surgery Monday morning in Chicago to repair a torn medial meniscus in his right knee. He was hurt Friday night at Portland. The 2011 NBA MVP missed all of last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Chicago's 2012 playoff opener against Philadelphia. He has played in just ...
