Kansas Football

Strength in numbers: Jayhawks favor running-back-by-committee approach |
A hell of a committee it was in game one and we still have this group for another 2-3 years.

WR JaCorey Shepherd made the right call |
Shepherd made an impact on Saturday. With two other receivers out this week you wonder if we might see another freshman work his way in.

Football hopes to create new tradition |
I like the statue...I also noticed the giant banner in the student section. That was taken right out of the Nebraska handbook but what the hell they aren't in our conference anymore so whatever.

LSU, Wisconsin rise in TV pilot-themed college Power Rankings - Andy Staples -
CNNSI going the "power ranking" route. Should be interesting to see how this one varies.

Texas A&M-to-SEC could happen Wednesday; then dominoes fall - Andy Staples -
It sounds like this is the domino that needs to fall before ANYTHING else will happen. From there all bets are off. It sounds as if OU is ready to go.

Oklahoma Sooners' Bob Stoops can see future without Texas Longhorns rivalry - ESPN
Oklahoma and Bob Stoops seem to be pretty directly addressing the Pac12 and their desire to move. Again, A&M to the SEC has to happen first, but this one might not be far behind.
