Tim Bisel: In Year 4 of David Beaty era, KU football's future looks far too similar to its past
Nicholls State did virtually everything in its power to hand David Beaty and Kansas the season opener.

KU football grades: Reviewing the loss to Nicholls State
Peyton Bender's performance may have seemed unspectacular, and generally speaking, his numbers were. However, much of that falls on the offensive line, as Bender received several uncatchable snaps and also had little time to throw on several occasions.
