The Rock Chalkboard

After a physical win over Duke, nicks and bruises starting to pop up for KU football
The KU football players left David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon with their fourth win in as many games. From the outside, it appeared to be one of the most physical battles the Jayhawks have been in all season. Throughout the game multiple players either left the field hobbled under their own power or with trainers beside them. To be exact, Devin Neal, D.J. Withers, Cobee Bryant and Mello Dotson all left the field during various points in the game. Neal and Bryant in particular had to go to the locker room for a brief period. But by the time the game ended, all four players had returned to the field. Linebacker Craig Young also limped off the field on the final defensive drive and did not return to the game for the final plays.

Big 12 football power rankings 2022: Oklahoma State takes Week 5 throne after Kansas State upsets Oklahoma
Let's look at the conference games so far. Kansas won at West Virginia in overtime. Texas Tech defeated Texas in overtime. Kansas State and Baylor landed road wins, at Oklahoma and at Iowa State, respectively. Both of those games were separated by seven points. And that's it. The biggest margin of victory in conference games came when Kansas landed a rare double-digit overtime win after picking off West Virginia's final pass attempt and running it back for a touchdown.

Kansas football: Retaining Lance Leipold a priority for Jayhawks amid reported Nebraska interest, AD says
"We're not going to sit idle," Goff told Dodd. "We're not going to take things for granted. We're going to keep building this thing. Basically, we're not going to let some other situation dictate what's best for the University of Kansas."

WATCH: Lance Leipold meets with the media for his Week 5 press conference
Kansas football (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) will look to extend its perfect start to the 2022 season another week on Saturday when it takes on Iowa State (3-1, 0-1 Big 12). KU is coming off a close home win over Duke last weekend whereas Iowa State is coming off its first loss of the season, a 31-24 defeat to Baylor at home. Last season, Iowa State drubbed KU in Ames, 59-7. KU has not beaten Iowa State since Matt Campbell took over as head coach and the Jayhawks have lost their last seven games. Despite that, KU leads Iowa State in the all-time series, 50-45.

College football rankings: Ohio State rises, Oklahoma falls in CBS Sports 131 entering Week 5
Oklahoma and Ohio State entered Week 4 with similar tests. The two top-five programs had to defend their home turf against strong conference opponents. To say Oklahoma and Ohio State exited Week 4 very differently would be a huge understatement. Ohio State showed it has very few real flaws. Wisconsin learned that all too well in Saturday’s 52-21 beatdown. Ohio State led 45-7 entering the fourth quarter. But Oklahoma has to go back to the drawing board after Kansas State ran roughshod over the Sooners in the 41-34 setback. CBS Sports ranked every team in FBS, from No. 1 to No. 131. entering Week 4, and Ohio State rose up the rankings while Oklahoma tumbled.

Why Manchin backed off on his top priority - POLITICO
But Manchin’s final major priority after a stretch in which everything broke his way needed the support of Republicans. And there were simply too many problems for him to solve in too short a time after releasing his legislation just last week. His home-state GOP colleague Sen. Shelley Moore Capito has her own permitting bill, and Republicans who want to defeat Manchin in 2024 largely have no desire to help him out of a jam.

He is an international leader in cardiac arrhythmia research from the Baker Heart and Diabetes Research Institute, Melbourne, Australia. “The results suggest that mild to moderate intake of ground, instant, and decaffeinated coffee should be considered part of a healthy lifestyle.”
