Game balls and gassers: KU at Rutgers

Advertisement

Game Balls

Quarterback Montell Cozart. His voice was so gravelly, his nose so plugged from the flu after the game that he had trouble making himself heard. He didn’t start the game, but when Deondre Ford went down with a thumb injury, Cozart entered and completed 13 of 18 passes for 193 yards and did not throw an interception. 

Fellow Bishop Miege graduate Tre’ Parmalee. The senior recovered a fumble and caught five passes for 64 yards. 

Gassers

True freshman receiver Steven Sims. Late in the first quarter, on second-and-15, Ford threw a perfect pass to a wide-open Sims well past the first-down marker and Sims dropped the potential touchdown. Two plays later, Kansas punted.

Senior captain defensive end Ben Goodman. He and Corey King pressured Rutgers quarterback Chris Laviano, and Goodman caught him and was flagged for a 15-yard horse-collar penalty. Instead of forcing a punt after that play, Rutgers had a first down and finished the drive with a touchdown.

Two of their three scores were fueled by 3rd down personal foul penalties - a face mask DEEP in Rutgers territory and the horse collar mentioned in the story above. These are the things you absolutely CANNOT do when you are trying to grind your way to a win. You do this when you are lazy and undisciplined. These are the things that turn the fans away as you try to rebuild a program. I shut the game off after the horse collar. I want to see these young kids grow and get better but won't tolerate dumb and lazy penalties. If you're teaching these guys fundamentals why are they starting their tackling motion above the shoulders. It's ridiculous! CLEAN IT UP ASAP!!!!!!
