In March, University of Northern Iowa shocked Kansas University’s basketball team with an upset in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Saturday at Memorial Stadium, a similarly scrappy North Dakota State University football team handed KU another crippling loss. Hard to believe that a three-pointer — a 32-yard field goal from NDSU kicker Ryan Jastram with 8:04 to play in the third quarter — from a Missouri Valley upstart did the Jayhawks in again.

Welcome back to the Newell Post Live, coming to you from Memorial Stadium where the Kansas Jayhawks are getting set to take on the North Dakota State Bison.

As far as debuts go, this one figures to be a doozy. Sure, there’s the part about Kansas University football coach Turner Gill coaching his first game with the Jayhawks — 6 tonight vs. North Dakota State — the questions surrounding how this year’s group of players will fill the void left by some of the school’s all-time greats and the usual nerves, jitters and hype that always seem to surround the opening weekend of college football. But compared with what’s happening for Gill and his family this weekend, that stuff seems secondary.
After an entire spring, four weeks of fall camp and an intense week of game preparation, North Dakota State University football coach Craig Bohl feels pretty prepared for this week’s challenge.
The mystery that is Turner Gill’s Kansas University football team goes public for the first time at 6:10 p.m. today, so it’s last-chance time to guess how this team will perform on offense and defense.
KUSports.com editor Jesse Newell and KU football beat writer Matt Tait break down KU football's first game of the 2010 season against North Dakota State University.
Pat Dorsey and Richard Johnson’s big hits in practice also come with some friendly advice to the Kansas running backs.
