KU does have a reason to get extra fired-up for an Aztec team that is coming off a 52-45 home loss to Grand Canyon University on Friday. San Diego State came to Lawrence and defeated the Jayhawks, 61-57, on Jan. 5, 2014.
SDSU and head coach Steve Fisher have put together some pretty dangerous teams in the past few seasons, but this one doesn’t appear to be on that upper-echelon level.
5. Ryan Willis, QB, Kansas: Willis gets the nod in the top five as the only Big 12 true freshman quarterback to start most of the season. The Jayhawks went 0-12, but Willis' development was noticeable. Can he be David Beaty's long-term answer behind center? The Jayhawks will know the answer in Year 2.

It's still interesting, though, because it illuminates a really bizarre rule -- or lack thereof -- in the NFL rulebook. As it turns out, there is no penalty for calling a timeout when you don't have one. Like, at all.
Worth noting: there is a penalty if you attempt to ice the kicker via an extra timeout or if you try and use injuries to take timeouts. But just accidentally calling timeout doesn't hurt you at all.
To end the first half Monday night, the New Orleans Saints thought they scored a touchdown on three separate occasions. They ended up with zero points and headed into the locker room trailing the Detroit Lions 21-3.
Against Charlotte on Saturday, Oubre made both of his 3-pointers, shot 3-for-5 overall, scored 8 points and had 5 rebounds in his first outing as an NBA starter. He played just 22 minutes after picking up his second foul a little more than 6 minutes in.

The Blue Devils will wear white helmets with a devil design that dates back to the 1966-69 seasons, before the current Blue Devil design and the football team's move to the block "D" and script "Duke" on the helmet.
A long suspension is surely warranted, thought it doesn't look deliberate, and Melo was sure to check on Biglia after. But what was he thinking? Maybe he is training to be the next Rey Misterio Jr. when he brought up that second leg. What a horrific tackle. (Mr. Ed says: I dunno, this soccer thing seems pretty barbaric. I don't think I would let my kids play such a dangerous sport.)
