Kansas Football

Ku-2Breakdown: Toben Opurum learning on the job at defensive end | The Newell Post |
Watching Toben makes me think he has a lot of potential. He's just like anyone else who is moved twice in a year, he's got a lot to learn. That said, there are a lot of solid backers and ends that come from a HS RB background. I hope it works.

Ku-2KU’s Mecham takes reins for Jayhawks -
Nobody's giving you a shot Quinn, make it happen.

Ku-2Iowa State football: Osborne has comforting words for Kansas coach | The Des Moines Register
"I told Turner that football people understand what's going on." This from Tom Osborne. Sounds to me like he's taking a shot at Kansas and I'm not sure I like it.

Ku-2Rhoads empathizes with Jayhawks' Gill
Coaches stick together. Even when one should know full well that he's done a better job at managing the first year stumbling blocks.

Ku-2Know the foe: Iowa State Cyclones riding wave of euphoria |

Ku-2KU vs. ISU: head to head |

Some good league games today.

Big 12 takes offensive: Five of top 18 offenses in country play in league |
Hard to believe it but the Big 12 might be a better offensive league than it was a year ago.

Coach Talk

Henderson: Big issues — Who, when? - The Denver Post
Again, not necessarily Kansas related but I found it funny that they continue to shovel dirt on the grave before they even throw Hawkins in the hole. Thoughts on that list of candidates? Seems slightly optimistic to me and I just don't think the McCartney to Snyder comparison holds water.

When to fire a coach can be toughest decision - The Denver Post
I read this yesterday and thought it was an interesting take on the whole dead man walking argument with coaches. I noticed they missed Terry Allen in their list. Also, what's everyone's take on whether Gill has lost the team this year?

Big 12 Basketball

Colorado basketball loses center Harris-Tunks to torn ACL | The Denver Post — All Things Colorado Sports
Talked about this yesterday. CU has plenty of problems on the interior. This doesn't help. Good potential team, but his is a major blow.

Prep Ben McLemore visiting Mizzou |
McLemore still says he wants to sign early. Some thing this is a formality and that he'll be a Jayhawk soon.

Kansas HS Football

High school football player dies from injury suffered during game - News - FOX Sports on MSN
Here's the story on the Spring Hill player. Very sad.
