Mitch Lightfoot and his six blocks were huge in the win at TCU.

Bill Self says his guards need to “get going” now that conference play is in full swing, noting the struggles of Malik Newman and Lagerald Vick over the last couple of games.

Self told the LJW that he should know by Monday afternoon on both Silvio de Sousa and Billy Preston.

Reid Forgrave at CBSSports says it’s folly to count out the Jayhawks this early in the season, and the win at TCU proves the point.

The American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) has invited Art Briles to speak at their convention this week. The stated goal is to help coaches better understand how to work with sexual assault allegations, investigations, and related situations.

I somehow missed that last month Mac Engel at the Star-Telegram says Art Briles deserves a second chance. The reasoning is because: 1) Everyone else on his staff has moved on to other jobs, 2) He’s a really good football coach who wants to work, and (3) he doesn’t have a job.

Ohio State smoked #1 Michigan State on Saturday; #2 Duke fell at NC State.
