The scout team should offer more resistance than the Kansas defense.
Indeed, the Mountaineers have not forgotten the 30-mph gusts that made for one-way passing. Or the shame of the watching the league’s puniest program reel off 31 unanswered points. Or the aftermath of a few thousand fans spilling onto the field to get the goal posts wet.
Falco gives senior sophomore tight end Ben Johnson, a minute and a half to answer as many questions as he can in rapid-fire format.

“I think I was being aggressive but it (shot) wasn’t falling, missing layups and stuff like that,” Graham said of the MSU game. “I definitely have to work on finishing, maybe pulling up (for a) midrange jump shot and not going so far to the basket down there with the bigs.

Last year, Kansas built an impressive resume for the NCAA selection committee and saw its best RPI mark in recent years after playing tough competition throughout the non-conference slate. The 2016 campaign will be no different, as the Jayhawks kick off the season with North Carolina State, who advanced to the NCAA Super Regionals in 2015. NC State is the first of three non-conference opponents that appeared in the postseason.
The University of Kansas women's cross country team is set to compete at the NCAA Championships to be held at E.P. 'Tom' Sawyer Park in Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday. The Jayhawks are competing as a team at the national meet for the first time since 1994.
After three weeks of dual meets, the Jayhawks will be tested on their progress at a pair of local weekend competitions – the Big Challenge in Topeka and the KU Dive Invite at Robinson Natatorium in Lawrence. Both events are three-day, championship-style meets held Nov. 20-22.

But these couldn't be the "good old days," as Swinney often calls them, if Clemson had not finally come to grips with its old "good old days." For parts of three decades, Clemson hoped to return to the Danny Ford era of the 1980s -- a period that produced the university's first national championship in any sport, five ACC titles and four 10-win seasons. But you can't swoon in the romance of the past without also mentioning the NCAA violations that tainted the 1981 national title, or the ugly departure of Ford that divided a generation of Clemson fans.
