The Rock Chalkboard

Les Miles believes Kansas football 'going to put it together'
In its latest loss, Kansas allowed 35 unanswered points to the Wildcats and killed any momentum in the game with repeated mistakes on both offense and special teams. K-State scored three non-offensive touchdowns in the game with one coming on an interception return and two coming in the punt return game.

10of12 Top 10: Oklahoma State prevails, K-State rises
With quarterback Spencer Sanders returning from injury, Oklahoma State made a massive statement around the league with a 24-21 win over Iowa State. Although the game was only decided by three points, it seemed like the Cowboys controlled the game throughout. There were some obvious miscues for Mike Gundy's squad that went for big yards, as it was their first game since Oct. 3. But with Sanders back under center, the Cowboys have proved they have separated themselves at the top of the Big 12.

Kansas football grades: Reviewing the Jayhawks' loss at K-State
The quarterback grades in Big 12 play have been F, F and F+, so this is at least a step in the right direction. Jalon Daniels impressed with his mobility and rushed for two touchdowns. He made a couple nice throws and even had a quarterback quick kick that pinned K-State at the 6-yard line.

Five-star point guard Dylan Andrews down to eight
Kansas: “I like Kansas because they are known for sending guards to the league along with the other seven schools in my list. I talk to the coaches a lot so there's a real strong player coach connection along with the other schools. They basically told me I'm a good guard and they watched my film. They like how I can run a team and my dog mentality.”

Ochai Agbaji hoping to grow as leader for KU basketball
When Ochai Agbaji was a true-freshman in the 2018-19 season, he wasn’t eased into the world of college basketball. After Udoka Azubuike tore a ligament in his hand and was sidelined for the rest of the year, KU burned Agbaji’s redshirt. Though he missed the previous 14 games, Agabji proceeded to start in 16 of the final 22 games of the season — averaging 8.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.

Kansas at K-State: Who stood out and who didn't...
I legitimately don't know who totals the pass breakup stats, but they sold Prunty way short. For starters, Prunty had two early pass breakups to complement his two open-field tackles — one of which may have saved a touchdown. I had Prunty down for three pass breakups on the day, but regardless of that exact total, his impact was clearly felt on the field, as Kansas State began to look elsewhere in the passing game.
