Notebook: Kansas Football Joe Dineen named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

What have we done with innocence

NCAA Football: SE Missouri State at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

After an impressive game against SEMO, Joe Dineen was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.

Dineen calls the 2008 Orange Bowl team “the standard” for KU football.

Mark Mangino says one thing that current Jayhawks can take away from meeting the 2007 team is simply how they carry themselves and how confident they are.

Aqib Talib credited David Beaty for reaching out and bringing the Orange Bowl champs back together (video).

JayhawkSlant noted that Meacham talked a lot about getting the ball to TE Ben Johnson more this year, and they caught up with Ben after the game.

David Beaty conducted his weekly press conference yesterday, and the video and transcript are both available here.

Beaty is not concerned about the lack of production in the run game against SEMO, saying that was due to the way SEMO lined up defensively that made OC Doug Meacham call more pass plays:

They've got seven in the box just by pure alignment, whether they're one-high or two-high. You're outnumbered. You're going to have to run the football outside; they're not going to let you get in the A-gaps.

Bobby Nightengale at the LJW takes you inside some key plays during the SEMO game with a little film study.

The Week 2 opponent for Kansas is Central Michigan, who struggled in their home opener, but the Jayhawks expect a much improved Chippewa squad to show up in Lawrence.

Bill Self is proud of his roots and attributes his success to the relationships he’s built and maintained during a Hall of Fame career.

Kelsie Payne also scored weekly conference honors, being named the Big 12’s offensive player of the week in volleyball.
