Programming Note:  I will be at a field tomorrow morning with limited to no cell service. As such, I likely will not be able to put the open thread and news and notes together.  Unless one of the other writers can do it, feel free to continue today's discussions in the morning here.

Kansas Football

Game preview: Oklahoma Sooners at Kansas Jayhawks - ESPN

I agree that the overall outcome of the game is going to depend on what Oklahoma does rather than us. But whether the game will be watch-able or not will be entirely up to us.

Glad to see he was able to identify and improve so drastically on an area of weakness.

All I want to see is some improvement.

Opinion: Kansas football offense to learn if less is more | KUsports.com

So either the position coaches are entirely incompetent, and can't teach these players the basics of routes, or the players can't speak up when things are coming at them too fast.  I'm a little concerned it took HCCW this long to realize that having a few really well executed routes is better than a lot of half-assed ones.

This just depressed me.  The fact that we are in a worse spot from when this was originally written is extremely disheartening.

Kansas Basketball

Would love to see this "second Late Night" packed. I mean how awesome would it be to send that message to recruits?

Expected to be a bit higher, but that's probably just the homer in me.

Ridiculous Story of the Day:

Wal-Mart worker: Fired for helping assaulted woman - KansasCity.com

Apparently defending yourself can get you fired.  The headline is bad enough, but when you realize that he only asked the woman if she needed help before he was assaulted himself, Walmart's decision looks even worse.
