Turning a corner? KU finally wins close one in improbable 13-10 victory over LA Tech | KUsports.com

And with that victory, people have slowly edged back from the cliff.  At this point, I'm not sure if I like the two weeks between. I might prefer just getting the first (probable) loss in the Big 12 out of the way, like ripping off the bandaid.

At first I thought it was kind of sad that we had to practice how to celebrate a win, but the more I think about it, the more I like it.  The idea is to get them into a winning frame of mind. If you spend time preparing to celebrate a win, it gets the guys thinking that a win is going to come.

Kansas football still a work in progress | KUsports.com

This headline implies that people thought the team was complete.  It was always expected to be a work in progress this season.

I'm not sure we can call this team a "first" on anything.

Insider piece, so I'd appreciate someone filling us in on exactly what it says about the KU guys. I gathered we have 3 on the list.

It's news to me that we aren't recruiting Lyle at all. Unless we have a better tandem already lined up, we could do a lot worse than Lyle.
