Happy debut: Peyton Bender starts fast in opening win over SEMO

The path that first took him through Pullman, Wash., then Fulton, Miss., eventually led quarterback Peyton Bender to Lawrence, Kansas.

David Beaty only spent two seasons as an assistant on Mark Mangino’s Kansas football staff. But when he looks back on it now, Beaty appreciates the groundwork he saw Mangino put in more than ever. Before Mangino and the entire 2007 Orange Bowl team is enshrined in the Kansas Athletics Hall of Fame as part of the Jayhawks’ season-opener versus Southeast Missouri State (6 p.m., Memorial Stadium), Beaty said his former boss found a way to make an impact on the program during his eight-year run (50-48 record from 2002-09) that remains even today.
