Kansas City Star reporter Jesse Newell is joined by C.J. Moore of The Athletic and Bleacher Report as the two discuss the latest with the KU Jayhawks basketball team. What's the overall outlook for KU at this point in the season? And will Malik Newman's breakout against Iowa State mean good things for the Jayhawks moving forward? The two also talk about KU still waiting on the NCAA for rulings on Billy Preston and Silvio De Sousa and how those announcements could potentially change the Jayhawks' identity over the last two months.

Kansas City Star reporter Jesse Newell is joined by C.J. Moore of The Athletic and Bleacher Report as the two discuss the latest with the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team. How much should fans panic after KU's second home loss this season? And what is the best fix for the Jayhawks' defensive issues? The two also discuss KU's lack of role players, a Svi Mykhailiuk story that might never run and, of course, three-pointers.

The Chiefs Gameplan podcast is back for the Chiefs’ Wild Card-round matchup against the Tennessee Titans (9-7).
 
The Star’s Terez Paylor kicks off the pod with an interview with Chiefs inside linebacker Reggie Ragland, who talks about his smooth transition to Kansas City, why he strives to be an "alpha male" on the field and why he's set out to prove old-school linebackers than thrive in today's game.
 
Terez is then joined by Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com, as they dissect the Titans' offense, including Marcus Mariota's recent play and Derrick Henry's determination to run harder this week.
 
After that, Titans beat writer Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com joins the podcast to give some good insight on the Titans' stout run defense and some of their most underrated players.
 
Finally, the A-Team convenes for its weekly roundtable of Sam Mellinger (@mellinger), Blair Kerkhoff (@BlairKerkhoff), David Eulitt (@davidphotokc) and Terez as they wrap up the pod with an extensive breakdown of the unit-by-unit matchup, play a fun new game called "We Rip Your Airport!" and much more. They’ll also field questions from Facebook. Enjoy!

The A-Team dissects the Chiefs' thrilling but meaningless 27-24 win over the Denver Broncos in Week 17. How good was Patrick Mahomes' debut? What specific throw did he make that literally made two members of the A-Team stand in amusement and shock? Which other young players made positive impressions?

They'll discuss all that, plus answer your reader questions, live from Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
