More Heisman talk
A letter from the Heisman Trophy Trust showed up in the mail on Tuesday at KU, detailing what might come in the next six weeks if quarterback Todd Reesing fares well in the voting.
A Heisman spokesperson said "20 or 30" candidates received the letter.
"He's got my vote," KU linebacker Joe Mortensen said Tuesday. "I'll vote for little Doug Flutie."
The Heisman was talked about plenty at KU's news conference, with tight end Derek Fine - Reesing's roommate - sharing the best stories.
"I haven't told him yet, but I'm going to get one of those shirts. One of those 'Reesing For Heisman' shirts," Fine said. "I haven't told him yet, but I've got to go get it."
Actually, one has been hanging around Fine's crib recently.
"My sister bought one for Todd, and we had it hanging up in the house for a while," Fine said.
Talib on list
KU cornerback Aqib Talib is one of 15 "Players to Watch" for the 2007 Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year Award.
Talib is the only defensive back and one of two Big 12 Conference players on the list, joining Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel. Five finalists will be named Nov. 27.
The reigning Big 12 defensive player of the week, Talib has 48 tackles, four interceptions and 11 pass breakups this season.
A couple of statistical errors from KU's 43-28 victory over Oklahoma State were corrected this week.
Reesing was credited with 10 more yards passing and had 318 in the game. Kerry Meier was given 10 more yards receiving and had 27 for the game.
The victim was Brandon McAnderson, who had 10 rushing yards taken away and finished with 25 carries for 132 yards and two touchdowns.
Players of the game
Marcus Henry's 199 receiving yards, not surprisingly, were enough to get him selected offensive player of the week by the KU coaching staff for the OSU game. Joe Mortensen and Darrell Stuckey split defensive honors, while Scott Webb was cited for special teams.
Free State High product Ryan Murphy was named offensive scout team player of the week.
