“I think it’s a challenge for them,” Beaty said. “We’re the adults in this deal. We’re not necessarily allowed to have bad days. They have bad days. So the more we can keep our emotions in tune and in check … and that’s difficult for grown men. That’s difficult for us. But that’s why I hired the guys I hired. They know how to handle these young men.”
“It wasn't surprising to me that (ISU) coach (Paul Rhoads) ran the football at us,” Beaty said. “And they executed very well. We have to do a great job of playing technique, being assignment sound and then we've gotta get bigger and stronger so we don't get moved quite as much and those holes get smaller. We've got a lot of work to do. We're not there yet.”
This thing is starting to look a little scary. Nobody expected KU to win many games this season and a good chunk of those of follow the program knew that a winless season could be in the cards. But within that framework, the hope and, really, the expectation, was that the Jayhawks would look a little better each week and put a product on the field that was (a) disciplined, (b) played hard and (c) one fans could be proud of. That was during the first week or week and a half, but in the past few games things seem to have gone in the wrong direction.
David Beaty may have the hardest job in college sports. He is to build strength from rubble and credibility from pity. He will be mocked if he fails, because that’s how we treat sports. He is attacking this job every day, with everything he has. Beaty is the football coach at Kansas, and it hasn’t taken long for him to learn the value of self-deprecation.
The Jayhawks fell to Iowa State 38-13. Kansas head coach David Beaty met with the media and here is Q&A in the post-game press conference.
“Carlton is one of the most talented big guys we’ve had since I’ve been here. Offensively, obviously, a Marcus Morris-type guy. He’s one of those guys that has that type of skill, and it’s going to take time, but certainly I think he has a chance to be a special guy,” Self said.
No. 12 Kansas Volleyball's high-octane offense continued to steam ahead in a 3-0 (25-14, 25-18, 25-12) victory over West Virginia on Saturday evening in front of a capacity crowd at Horejsi Family Athletics Center.
Former Kansas standouts Terry Beeson (football) and Tracy Bunge (softball) were inducted into the State of Kansas Sports Hall of Fame (KSHOF) Sunday in Wichita.

Look, overall, this isn't about any specific team getting the short end of the stick ... because they've all, including Texas at this point, been affected in some fashion ... or even about acknowledging errors. It is about your broken group, Bob and Walt. Schools and fans across the conference don't want to keep pointing out massive system/procedural flaws like replay not being used as it should, or first-down markers inexplicably moving 12-15 feet. Bottom line is they want the massive incompetence to stop.
Aside from the content of the tweet from Boyd, what is he doing on his phone on Twitter during halftime, anyway?
Typically coaches deny wild allegations at the beginning and only acknowledge issues later, if they must. But Louisville's Rick Pitino was different Friday. He never said he doesn't believe what's alleged to have happened ever happened, and that suggests he's preparing for the worst.
The chain gang working the Illinois-Nebraska game made a major mistake that led to an Illinois turnover on downs.
Houston coach Tom Herman will only let his offensive and defensive linemen sit in first class while traveling.
You're going to be prepared for most of what the opponent does. And the opponent only impacts so much of the game plan anyway. "You're going to do what you do, if you're any good. You're not going to invent stuff."

Madison Bumgarner expressed frustration on the mound Thursday night with home plate umpire Joe West, who started to stare Bumgarner down. Bumgarner returned the favor.
The 49ers paid the price for giving Rodgers way too much time.
The decision, already questionable, was made worse by the play design. Look to the right, where the three lead blockers stood. There was some space there. But no, the punter broke out to the left and tried to outrun the angle by Ohio State's defenders, which went exactly how one would expect. (Mr. Ed says: KU fans, this remind you of anything?)
