Peyton Bender says he is approaching the starting QB position as if he has to re-win the job every day in practice. Also, I’m just gonna drop this quote here and move on:

... you can make big plays by throwing the ball behind the line of scrimmage a lot of times if that’s what the read says.

Bender won the job due to the improvement in his leadership and ball security during spring and fall camps.

New starting center Alex Fontana came to KU from Canada via Connecticut and Roswell.

David Beaty is excited about the cornerbacks, but this quote confuses me:

We have got so many new guys back there that have played a lot of ball, and we are very simple in what we are doing, so I look forward to seeing those big, long dudes help us.

What does that even mean?

Peyton Bender talks about the difficulties of playing in a 2-QB system.

Scott Chasen highlights 10 takeaways from Beaty’s presser yesterday.

Jesse Newell says KU’s plan for Saturday is to have a starting QB, play the backup, and keep the rest a secret.

Not everything is sunshine and rainbows at the LJW.

Nicholls State has a couple of FBS wins under their belt, but they are still looking for a win over a school out of the so-called “Power-5.”

Unfortunately for Mr. Bender, Nicholls State is working hard to increase its INTs over last season.

What makes Bill Self so great? Former players weigh in.

This isn’t what you should be doing, Baby Jay.

In other news...

A Clemson student has won the starting QB job at Furman and will take on the Tigers on Saturday.

Aaaaaaand that’s really all I got for ya today.
