Buffalo coach Turner Gill has been offered the same job at Kansas, a person familiar with the search told the Associated Press on Saturday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the school hadn't announced the move. Gill is 20-30 in four years with the Bulls. There was no indication when a deal with Gill, a former Nebraska quarterback, might be finalized. Gill's best season at Buffalo was 2008 when the Bulls won the MAC championship and went to their first bowl in half a century.

COLLEGE PARK - As different as the gym rat and blue-chip star seemed on the surface, Mark Turgeon and Danny Manning had a lot in common when they became teammates and best friends playing for Larry Brown at Kansas in the 1980s. "They've got the same values, they were great teammates, they were really cerebral, both grew up with families that were involved in the game," Brown recalled in a telephone interview Saturday. "The biggest difference is that one guy is 5-[foot-]10 and the other guy is 6-10.

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- The Orioles will attempt an unprecedented climb out of a 2-0 hole as the American League Championship Series shifts to Kauffman Stadium. It won't be easy because the Kansas City Royals are a team brimming with confidence. The Royals arrived home having won all six of their postseason games - pulling out two tightly-contested wins over the Orioles at Camden Yards with their share of late-inning hits and celebratory histrionics - to put the Orioles' season on the brink.

8 p.m. [ESPN2] The Cardinals moved this game to a Wednesday because the Ryder Cup is being played nearby this weekend. Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman has completed 76 percent of his passes, throwing for five touchdowns, in victories over North Texas and Montana State. Though the Wildcats averaged 57 points in those two wins, Louisville (1-1) ranks fourth in the nation in total defense, allowing 193 yards per game.

Don Markus, reporter Kansas 71, Kentucky 69: There are some coaches who are destined not to win a national championship. Not saying that John Calipari is the Guy V. Lewis of his generation, but Bill Self coached a less talented Jayhawks  team over Calipari and Derrick Rose-led Memphis to win it all in 2008.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Roy Williams of Kansas was named Associated Press college basketball Coach of the Year today, the first Big Eight coach to ever win the award.Williams led the Jayhawks to the championship game last season, but lost three starters from that team. Still, Kansas (27-5) managed to win the Big Eight title for the second straight season and was the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Regional, losing to Texas-El Paso in the second round. The Jayhawks were ranked second in the final poll of the season, Williams' fourth at Kansas.

The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 2 of the American League Championship Series between the Orioles and the Kansas City Royals. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles now have a tremendous mountain to climb in Kansas City down two games to none as the ALCS shifts to Kauffman Stadium. The Orioles hadn't lost consecutive home games since June 28-29. And if they were able to get anything out of a one-out, bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning, Game 2 might have turned out different.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's possible that the Kansas City Royals will go into the American League Championship Series against the Orioles with the same 25-man roster, including 11 pitchers, they used to sweep the Los Angeles Angels in the Division Series. And it appears likely that Kansas City rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura will be the Game 2 starter Saturday after right-hander James Shields pitches in Game 1. “We're pretty set with Ventura in the second game,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.

The two teams will meet in Game 1 on Friday and Game 2 on Saturday at Camden Yards before moving to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City for Games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary). Games 6 and 7 would be at Camden Yards, if they're needed. All game times have yet to be announced. Both teams completed a three-game sweep in the AL Division Series on Sunday. The Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 2-1, in the deciding game of their series, while the Royals routed the Los Angeles Angels, 8-3, in Game 3 to advance.

Former Maryland wide receiver Nigel King has transferred to Kansas, according to multiple reports and the player's Twitter page . King already graduated, so he will be eligible to play immediately as long as he enters into a graduate program that is not offered at Maryland. The 6-foot-3, 210-pound King had 33 catches for 450 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore last season. But the Terps deep at wide receiver, and King was set to enter preseason camp as a backup. King will compete for one of Kansas' two outside receiver jobs.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - We've been talking - and writing - about how concerning the Orioles' ballyhooed offense has been for most of this season. Saturday night's 1-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals and left-hander Danny Duffy, who took a perfect game into the seventh inning, brings home that point with obvious emphasis. It's not that Duffy wasn't good; he was excellent. And it's not that he doesn't have talent; he always has been highly regarded, but he has battled injuries and questionable control over the years.

Maryland basketball fans might have received some good news Friday night - and it had nothing to do with the Harrison twins. Bill Self signed a longtime extension at Kansas on Friday, meaning that second-year coach Mark Turgeon is not going anywhere anytime soon. I've always contended since the day Turgeon was hired to succeed Gary Williams in May 2011 that the only place I could see the former Kansas point guard and assistant coach going was back to Lawrence. Not that Self was rumored to be going anywhere, but just as Roy Williams surprised Jayhawks fans by returning to his North Carolina roots, I could see Self going home to Oklahoma State, his alma mater.

Who's better than the New England Patriots? Kansas. At least against the point spread. All season, we've marveled at the Patriots' demolishing the point spread week after week. The Pats are 9-1 against the line. Well, sports gambling expert R.J. Bell pointed out to us that Kansas is 10-0 against the spread. In real life, Kansas is 11-0, but its early-season game against Southeastern Louisiana wasn't on the board. Kansas won, 62-0. The Jayhawks, ranked No. 2, play No. 3 Missouri on Saturday with the obvious implication for a shot at the national championship game.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The first seven weeks of the Orioles' season has been defined, maybe more than anything, by the club's inability to get on a roll offensively and on the mound simultaneously. This weekend at Kauffman Stadium was Exhibit A for that frustration. The Orioles won the first two games Thursday and Friday by holding the Kansas City Royals to just one run in two games. But instead of sweeping the four-game series or at least winning three, the Orioles were nearly no-hit Saturday and then couldn't hold an early lead or mount enough of a comeback Sunday as the Royals won, 8-6, to secure a split.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For the majority of this young season, the Orioles' vaunted offense - which led the major leagues in home runs last year and then added slugger Nelson Cruz this offseason - has failed to live up to its advanced billing. On Saturday, in a 1-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals, the Orioles' offensive struggles nearly took a historic turn. Royals left-hander Danny Duffy retired the first 20 batters he faced and was just seven outs away from pitching the first perfect game against the Orioles in modern franchise history.
