Who would you like to see in the corner office of the Anderson Football Complex? More on that here at RCT later.
Oh, in case you were wondering, yes, this week's pics will be the most embarrassing ones I can find from the Duke game. The football team has made a fool out of me for the past five years, and I'm sick of it.

“Psychologically, if you let the guys leave the building after a loss sulking for the next 48 hours then you really lost 48 hours,” Weis said. “And before we went to practice we got going on Central Michigan and got a jump-start so they walked out of the building worrying about Central Michigan not worrying about Duke.”
After a narrow victory against Southeast Missouri State and an ugly performance at Duke, the Jayhawks’ season now stands at an early crossroads. Central Michigan is set to arrive in Lawrence for a Saturday matchup, a final nonconference game that now feels deeply urgent for Weis.
Least Impressive Unit: Defensive Line. No sacks. Huge holes for Duke freshman Shaun Wilson to run through en route to breaking a 20-year-old school record for single-game rushing yards. And minimal pressure on Duke quarterback Anthony Boone.
Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis and the Jayhawks' coordinators will meet with the media Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. inside the Anderson Family Football Complex to talk about the Jayhawks upcoming contest at home against Central Michigan.

Kansas football will open Big 12 Conference play when it plays host to the Texas Longhorns in the annual Homecoming weekend football game at 3 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 27. The game will be televised on Fox Sports 1, the Big 12 Conference announced on Monday.
Charlie Weis may want to start looking for a position calling offensive plays back in a booth under someone else again, because his days as a head coach in Lawrence, Kansas are likely numbered after the career-day that half of the Blue Devils offense had playing against his Jayhawks.
Several former Kansas football players have made a mark on their respective 2014 seasons of professional football. A weekly recap of how former KU student-athletes fared in the professional ranks of the National Football League and the Canadian Football League is below.

Summation: Go undefeated, Irish and Cougars, or face the fiery damnation of one-loss purgatory. Also working against them: Notre Dame and BYU have to manufacture their schedules as opposed to playing in a conference. No undefeated power conference program finished out of the top four in the BCS era.
Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann issued a public apology Monday afternoon for the "classless display" of some fans against Penn State after photos popped up on social media of some Scarlet Knights fans making light of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Kevin Olsen's season just keeps getting worse. The Miami Hurricanes quarterback was suspended for the first two games of the season, reportedly for a failed drug test, and now he faces more trouble after a DUI arrest early Monday morning.
Graham and Anderson, along with their wives, each pledged $500,000 to the Sun Devil Athletics Momentum, the largest gifts in school history by athletic department employees.

The university also is building a 330-acre athletic facilities district north of the stadium to raise funds for the project.

It's signed by John V. "Jack" Mara, son of founder Tim Mara and uncle of current CEO John Mara. It offered Gutke, then a quarterback at Utah State, a $150 per game paycheck if he made the team, but he'd have to provide his own shoes. I have no doubt the NFL would still have both those rules in effect if not for unionization.
We missed something during Miami's 41-20 win against Arkansas State on Saturday. Thankfully, Miami fan Sean Korte took to Twitter and Vine to document the most inexplicable fake punt of the season.
Seriously, folks, take this advice from a professional such as myself. If you're going to make out at a sporting event, do it sitting down. That way you aren't blocking the view of the poor people behind you and forcing them to watch you drunkenly paw at somebody else.
