Turning a corner? KU finally wins close one in improbable 13-10 victory over LA Tech | KUsports.com

I'm not sure we can call this team a "first" on anything.

Insider piece, so I'd appreciate someone filling us in on exactly what it says about the KU guys. I gathered we have 3 on the list.

It's news to me that we aren't recruiting Lyle at all. Unless we have a better tandem already lined up, we could do a lot worse than Lyle.
