The day looks so much better after a win, doesn't it?  Here is your victory lap:

Kansas football finally catches fire in 31-19 win |

Saturday afternoon, senior running back James Sims served as the flint to freshman quarterback Montell Cozart’s steel, and together the 1-2 punch set fire to the scoreboard in a 31-19 victory over West Virginia in front of a crowd of 30,089 fans at Memorial Stadium.

In the aftermath of the celebration, the big play was at once a great memory and a hazy one for Goodman.

“I really don’t even remember the play,” he said. “All I remember is the quarterback looking at me, and the ball is in my hand the next second. The play was really a blur to me. I don’t even remember what call we were in. I try to put my hands up when they try to throw a low ball, just try to interfere with the pass.”

Strangers embraced, coaches smiled, players passed out gear to appreciative classmates and sounds of happiness filled the air as the south goal post came crashing down and was given the customary escort to Potter Lake at the base of Campanile Hill.

WVU 'average' in loss to Jayhawks |

“I’ve warned them, this is different than the Big East,” the coach said. “The days of just showing up and playing a very marginal level — whether it’s effort, whether it’s execution, whether it’s coaching, whether it’s talent or whatever it is — you can’t show up and be average. I don’t care who it is. Our team’s good enough to where we can show up and play at a very high level and beat teams in the Big 12. Our team’s not good enough to where we can show up and play average and beat anybody. That’s obviously what happened today.”

Love the backhanded compliment to us and the downright insult to the Big East American.

‘Humble,’ ‘tough’ Cliff Alexander signs KU letter of intent |

“Once everybody got to watch him,” Irvin said of USA Basketball officials, “they saw why he’s so tough and tenacious. He just attacks you.

“He’s a power forward, not a center, very aggressive on both ends. He blocks shots, rebounds, is real tough down in the paint, just like you like it.”
