KU continues to stay the course. And, at this point, it's really all they can do. The players prepare hard and play harder. Head coach David Beaty has stayed consistent with regard to the expectations in the program and the opponents, like Texas did Saturday, have continued to find areas to exploit the Kansas defense and make life tough for the young KU offense. Many wondered if KU's match-up with the Longhorns would give the Jayhawks a better chance to compete, given the fact that UT did not feature one of those nasty, break-neck offenses like Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. And, for a little more than a half, compete they did. Maybe that gives reasonable cause for KU backers to think the same thing can happen against West Virginia and K-State. Then again, maybe not.

I remember my first game as a freshman. You end up just saying, ‘Hut, there’s a blitz, what am I supposed to do? OK, I gotta beat this guy one-on-one.’ I had no idea how to do it. True story.”

Mizzou football players said, in a statement released on social media Saturday night, they were halting all football-related activities -- effective immediately -- until Wolfe steps down. Sunday marked the third day since Thursday's game against Mississippi State. A clause in the BYU contract states that Missouri would owe $1 million if it cancels the game.
The possibility exists, CBS Sports has learned, after the football program joined a protest against Missouri's system president, Tim Wolfe, that includes a hunger strike by student Jonathan Butler. Missouri's players will not take place in any football-related activities until Wolfe resigns. As of Sunday, Wolfe said he has no intention to step down. Missouri did not practice Sunday.
