Live updates: Kansas football at K-State; pregame
The Kansas Jayhawks are in Manhattan this weekend seeking their first win of the season. Off to an 0-4 start on the year, the Jayhawks are still looking for their answer at quarterback, picking between senior Thomas MacVittie (Game 1 starter), true-freshman Jalon Daniels (Game 2 and Game 3) and junior Miles Kendrick (Game 4).

Kansas football at K-State (2020): Preview & prediction
Miles Kendrick is almost-certainly not the answer at that spot. He doesn't have the arm talent and athleticism of Thomas MacVittie. He doesn't have the long-term upside of Jalon Daniels. Maybe — maybe — a third full game (second start) would change that, but I doubt it. He would be my third choice to start this game if all quarterbacks were healthy.

Late Night in the Phog: Thoughts from KU basketball scrimmage
The final score was the Red Team 23, the Blue Team 16. You'll see some other outlets have the final at 23-18. What they are missing is 2 of Mitch Lightfoot's points actually came on a charge, but the broadcast didn't mention it, so I'm guessing the first person who statted it for another outlet didn't see it, and then another outlet probably borrowed their box score.

"It was definitely fun," Mertz said afterward. "I owe it to Coach [Jon] Budmayr and Coach [Paul] Chryst, we took a ton of time, one-on-one meetings and really just sorted the game plan out and we knew what we were doing and I felt confident in my ability to go execute and I think there's definitely some stuff we need to clean up. A lot more stuff we can clean up."
