Kansas Jayhawk News and Notes 9.23.10

Daily Grind - September 22 from Kansas Jayhawks on Vimeo.

I have to say these Gridirons hit a weak spot with me. It's like the apology from that person in life that you can't stay mad at.  I know there are mixed feelings on the start of the Gill era, but these always seem to make me feel a little bit better about the way things are going.

If there is one thing Kansas basketball has taught me over the recent years under Bill Self, it's to enjoy the process.  As KC said yesterday, that '08-'09 KU basketball season was more fun in a lot of ways than this past season because we had a chance to watch a team go through the highs and low and eventually come together. 

Now obviously football is a different animal but maybe this Kansas team can provide a little of that same enjoyment in their own way.  It starts Saturday, I'll use the term must win.  Then it's 2-2 going into conference play.
