I'd add the coaching staff to the gasser list as they could not figure out how to stop KSU's only two "threats" on offense.

jayhawk909603 - It's interesting that you comment on the lack of comments, and ultimately add no comment about the article or game - just a comment on the comments. Sort of like the proverbial pot calling the kettle black?

Unfortunately, I didn't get to watch the game, but from what I have read, the first post says plenty about the gassers. I might add, has anyone kept track of the number/% of dropped passes during this losing streak?

In the game ball category, maybe another one needs to go to Lubbock and Huldon for 9 tackles a piece.

It sounds like Williams is making a decent transition to DT after not starting out there. I wonder how Parrish is doing at OT?

Maybe Thorsen deserves a game ball just for making the switch and playing his 3rd position of the year.

I haven't kept track of the number of dropped passes . There have been a few by each of the receivers but nothing compared percentage wise to the number of very poorly thrown passes. A good number of them into the dirt. Many, totally uncatchable. I think Williams is a bright spot. I watched him in the Texas Tech game and he did a good job. He is a big , strong man, and this is what we need in the defensive line. He is very likeable and needs to get a little more meaner.He fell for a fold block but he will be much more knowledgeable next year. Some of the sophs and freshmen did make some mistakes but I see some pluses for the coming year.
