Texas football in unfamiliar territory |

This week, on the heels of a 24-0 loss at Iowa State last weekend — an embarrassing defeat that followed back-to-back impressive wins over Oklahoma and Kansas State — Strong and the Longhorns have been asked some tough questions about the state of the program. While 39 wins in what Kansas fans know as the post-Mark Mangino era might sound like a dream to those in Lawrence — the Jayhawks are just 12-56 since 2010 — it’s been more of a nightmare in Austin, and frustrations are starting to mount both inside and outside the program.

The Longhorns will see improved passing numbers but not eye-popping stats. Texas' defense will be able to handle the Jayhawks' offense. Kansas, however, will be able to keep the game close for a while as Texas will be searching to establish itself after their loss to the Cyclones.

Little was expected of Kansas coach David Beaty's squad in his first year. Strong, however, had promised just a year ago that five losses in a season would never happened again in his program. Texas got there before October ended.

“Frank (Mason III), Devonté, Perry at the three, Carlton at the 4 and Hunter or Jamari at the 5 ... I think that would have been our best team tonight,” KU coach Bill Self said. “Hunter did fine. He blocked some shots. They got the ball in tight several times and didn’t come away with anything. I thought Hunter played pretty well.”

It’s possible, Self believes, that he could end up missing regular season games. “I would like to say it’s not possible, but after going through the process I think anything’s possible,” he said. “Not putting any blame or fault on anything, it’s just there’s a few moving parts and the NCAA has to follow policy on those parts. It can be frustrating, but it’s not one, at this point in time, we’re going to stand up and beat the drum saying this should happen. We have to respect the process.” “It’s disappointing that we’re still dealing with this on Nov. 4th.”

Inside College Sports: Ex-football player sues NCAA over transfer rules -

The lead plaintiff is former cornerback Devin Pugh, who claims that one year after his Weber State head coach left, the new coach decided in 2012 not to renew his scholarship. Pugh says three FBS schools -- Colorado, Colorado State and Troy -- offered him a scholarship, but it was contingent on his ability to play two more years. The offers were rescinded because NCAA rules required him to sit out one year and Pugh was denied a hardship waiver to play immediately.

Royals, Seth Rogen, 'Modern Family' star fire paintballs at Jimmy Kimmel -

Kimmel, a Mets fan from way back, was making good on a bet he had made with Stonestreet, a star of ABC's "Modern Family" and a native of Kansas City, Kan. who grew up loving the Royals. If the Royals had lost to the Mets instead of the other way around, presumably it would have been Stonestreet in a Royals jersey falling down over himself while Jonathon Niese, Kevin Plawecki and David Wright fired paint pellets at his abdomen.
