With top juco recruit Octavius Matthews yet to be medically cleared to practice, the running back spot is looking more and more like a committee position between Khalil Herbert, Taylor Martin, Dom Williams, and Deron Thompson.

Doug Meacham says he doesn’t care what happened last year, when KU turned the ball over an FBS leading 36 times.
