OurDailyPodcast # 152 - The Duke-Kansas Sandwich - Our Daily Bears
We’re back! Not the result we were hoping for against Duke, but Baylor has a shot at redemption against Kansas. We’re talking about both on the podcast. Here’s what Coffey, Fank and I are talking about:

Kansas opens season at the Big 5 Challenge - Kansas Jayhawks
The Jayhawks are one of 13 teams competing in the Big 5 Challenge. Kansas will see some familiar opponents as three other Big 12 schools will be represented in Kansas State, TCU and Texas Tech. The nonconference teams competing include Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Georgia, Missouri, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Virginia and Virginia Tech.

Just how good are the Kansas Jayhawks?
After a season-opening loss at home to an FCS program in Nicholls State, things were looking very dire for the Kansas Jayhawks and head coach David Beaty. But the Jayhawks have since ripped off a pair of blowout wins over Central Michigan and Rutgers and they’re now riding a two-game win streak into Saturday’s Big 12 opener against Baylor (2:30 p.m. CT, FS1).

"This is a great opportunity for me to play at a high level and for me to get my name out," Hull said. "I know a little bit about the Jayhawks from a few friends I have that live in Kansas. It’s a great program in a really good conference."

Peyton Bender: Two-QB system has 'worked well' for KU football
Peyton Bender was always going to do whatever he was asked by the coaches. But the KU football starting quarterback did admit in the buildup to Fall Camp that it can be tricky to be stuck in a two-quarterback stable and not always have an idea of what's going to happen.

Defensive takeaways fueling KU football's confidence |
Not long after the Kansas football team’s defense spent its second straight Saturday repeatedly heisting the ball from a nonconference opponent, someone asked redshirt senior Daniel Wise what’s different about the group this season.

Nobody was ever prosecuted for it, and nobody was punished except, arguably, her: By the end of the fall semester, she had disappeared from our high school, leaving only sordid rumors and a nascent urban legend.
