Jereme Robinson makes game-changing play vs. Baylor, capping productive first two thirds of 2022 season
With Baylor quarterback Blake Shapen rolling to his right, Robinson shed a blocker and showed his close-down speed to sack Shapen and force a fumble. After swiftly getting up, Robinson recovered the fumble and returned it 49-yards down to the Baylor 9-yard line. The play proved to be that spark that gave KU a chance to go on and beat Baylor despite multiple 20-point deficits throughout the game. Right after the fumble, the offense would score its first touchdown of the day and go on a 20-0 run, however, the Jayhawks would still lose 35-23.

A millennial who tried van life says it's just ‘glorified homelessness' | Fortune
“If you do try to cut back on finances, you’re just eating junk,” Scott says, adding that #vanlife depictions don’t show the part where you’re living off food purchased from gas stations.

Nor do they show how van lifers shower or find bathrooms if they’re not in a converted van, she adds.
