The Rock Chalkboard

Five takeaways from Kansas basketball's Late Night
Late Night results can be notoriously misleading for those who elect to put too much emphasis on them. Everyone remembers Carlton Bragg, who starred at Late Night, only to lose his spot in Kansas' starting lineup a few games later, fail to win it back and eventually transfer, with his performance in the scrimmage serving as a mere footnote in a "what could have been" career.

A look at the sequence that changed KU football vs. Oklahoma
KU was about to get the ball back, too, with the opportunity to go for a score or wind the clock down and take a seven-point deficit into halftime. But a string of plays would turn the game on its head and allow Oklahoma to enter halftime with a 21-7 lead and the ball to start the second half.

Kansas drops four-set match to Oklahoma |
Kansas was unable to come away with its first Big 12 victory of the season on Saturday against Oklahoma in McCasland Field House. KU captured the first set (25-23) against Oklahoma, but dropped the final three sets (25-21, 25-16, 25-17) in the road loss.

“We're going to concern ourselves with the team and making this team better and talk about the guys that are going to sit down in this room on Monday and work hard to be a better football team,” Miles said during his postgame press conference. “I think Khalil is a good man. I think that's evident with the people that enjoy him.”

KU's offensive inconsistency leads to 45-20 loss to No. 6 Oklahoma |
The bloodbath some may have expected Saturday out of a matchup pitting offensive guru and Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley, his latest Heisman Trophy-aspiring quarterback, Jalen Hurts, and the No. 6 Sooners against an overmatched Kansas team didn’t turn out obscenely gory.
