Nothing that wasn't expected here as it's been rumored for some time now, but now the word has officially dropped from the AD.

 

July 24, 2009 - LAWRENCE, Kan. - Kansas running back Jocques Crawford has left the football team and is in the process of transferring to a lower division football program, it was announced by Jayhawk head coach Mark Mangino on Friday.

"Jocques was looking for an opportunity to get more playing time," Mangino said.  "We support his decision and wish him well."
