Kansas Jayhawks News and Notes 10.18.13

Programming Note:  I will be at a field tomorrow morning with limited to no cell service. As such, I likely will not be able to put the open thread and news and notes together.  Unless one of the other writers can do it, feel free to continue today's discussions in the morning here.

Game preview: Oklahoma Sooners at Kansas Jayhawks - ESPN

I agree that the overall outcome of the game is going to depend on what Oklahoma does rather than us. But whether the game will be watch-able or not will be entirely up to us.

Glad to see he was able to identify and improve so drastically on an area of weakness.

Opinion: Kansas football offense to learn if less is more |

So either the position coaches are entirely incompetent, and can't teach these players the basics of routes, or the players can't speak up when things are coming at them too fast.  I'm a little concerned it took HCCW this long to realize that having a few really well executed routes is better than a lot of half-assed ones.

Ridiculous Story of the Day:

Wal-Mart worker: Fired for helping assaulted woman -

Apparently defending yourself can get you fired.  The headline is bad enough, but when you realize that he only asked the woman if she needed help before he was assaulted himself, Walmart's decision looks even worse.
