Today marked a big milestone in the offseason for Lance Leipold and the Kansas Jayhawks, and Kansas Football Twitter account marked the occasion on Twitter:

And of course, with this milestone comes a staple of summer-time football coverage in my time covering the team: The 100 Day Countdown. It kicks off today with a brief overview of what you can look forward to and expect from us at Blue Wings Rising.

This year, we have the benefit of a more "normal" offseason, one with an expectation of a full Spring Practice season and summer workouts. The coaching staff has been in place for longer than just a couple months, and we have a general idea of what to expect going into next season.

In our series, we will take a look at what happened last season, what we learned over the spring, and then look ahead to what you should expect to see next season. You will hear from all of our contributors here at Blue Wings Rising in some fashion, and we will cover a variety of topics as they come up.

And that coverage will come in a variety of ways, including traditional articles, roundtable discussions, Q&As and mailbags, and podcast discussions, so there will be a little of something for everyone.

While I can't promise that we will have an entry in the countdown every single day (after all, life happens no matter how well we plan),  we have plenty of topics to cover. Plus, we don't plan on ignoring any breaking news for basketball or other sports in the meantime moving forward.

And if you just can't wait until tomorrow to start getting caught back up on this team, you can take a look at our spring football coverage:

The most recent episode of the podcast dives into some of the prospects for former Kansas players as they try to find a spot on rosters this season in the NFL:

Additionally, prior episodes covered the initial takeaways from the Spring Preview, and then we followed up with a deeper look into the game and the transfer portal news that happened shortly after.

We also dove into the selection of Kyron Johnson in the 6th round of the NFL Draft and took a look at the video series going behind-the-scenes of the program.  

As always, we strive to bring you articles on the topics that YOU are interested in reading. So if you have any suggestions for topics to investigate, or if you have any questions that you want us to answer, head over to the Discord Server or contact us on Twitter.

Join the discussion! Come talk about this or any of our articles on the Blue Wing Rising Discord Server.
