¢ Brandon McAnderson did most of the work on a 36-yard reception, and tied a school record with four rushing touchdowns. He gained 119 yards on the ground.

¢ Dezmon Briscoe's three TD receptions gave him a freshman-record seven on the season.

Candidates for Gassers

¢ Referee Randy Christal mistakenly announced to the crowd late in the first half, "Timeout, Kansas State."

¢ Linebacker James Holt was the one getting chewed out after a blown coverage made it easy for Marlon Lucky to turn a short pass into a 62-yard touchdown.

Holt was a victim of an illegal pick set by a receiver cracking back on him on that play. This gasser should also go to the ref who was looking right at it.

Hey everyone, ESPN is doing a fan vote for the Heisman and Reesing is NOT listed. But there is an "Other" option for you to nominate/vote for someone else. I say we bombard them with Reesing votes so that they have to include him on the list. Click the link and get to voting!!

I don't know about anybody else, but I thought the crowd atmosphere absolutely SUCKED. I had to entice people to get up and be loud on Nebraska third downs. The KU fans have NO IDEA how to be football fans. If you want to WATCH the game, STAY AT HOME!!! If you want to BE A PART OF THE GAME, SHOW UP AND DO WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO - BE LOUD AND EXCITED!!!!! What a bunch of wine and cheese crowd basketball fans!!!!!!! WE ARE IN THE NATIONAL TITLE HUNT. IT'S TIME TO START ACTING LIKE IT!!!!!!!!

By the way, our FOOTBALL team is more likely to win a national title before our celebrated basketball team. ACT ACCORDINGLY!!!!!
