KU sophomore quarterback Montell Cozart (2) looks for a receiver in the first half against Central Michigan on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at Memorial Stadium.

Column: QB play now Bowen’s problem

Now Clint Bowen is responsible for the entire team, which includes an offense that scored a combined three points in losses to Duke and Texas, an offense triggered by a relative newcomer. What are Bowen’s plans for injecting life into an offense that hasn’t gotten off the ground for four-plus seasons? By Tom Keegan

Lifetime around KU football eases Bowen's transition to interim coach

The sign on the podium he proudly stood behind read “Kansas Jayhawk Football Head Coach Clint Bowen.” The word “interim” was nowhere to be found. And, really, it didn’t need to be there anyway. For the next nine weeks — eight games and a bye — Bowen is the Kansas University football coach. By Matt Tait

Column: Bowen brings needed passion

Having a poor shot is better than no shot at all, and Clint Bowen has a shot at winning his dream job, minus the interim tag. His eight-game job interview begins Saturday in Morgantown, West Virginia, where as is almost always the case in Big 12 play, KU will come in as a double-digit underdog. By Tom Keegan

Speculation about Weis' future quietly took toll on Jayhawks

’Horns juiced over shutout

A reporter from the state of Texas — who is used to covering games with more than 90,000 fans in the stands of University of Texas Memorial Stadium — asked coach Charlie Strong how his Longhorns were able to “create energy and enthusiasm” with the atmosphere “dead” on Saturday at Kansas University’s own Memorial Stadium.

Column: Can Cozart continue as KU's QB?

The question will hang in the air all week, which was about how long that failed third-quarter fade pass in the end zone felt like it floated. And the question is this: Is it time? By Tom Keegan

Notebook: Mann provides rare bright spot for KU

There were not a lot of bright spots for the Kansas University offense during Saturday's 23-0 loss to Texas at Memorial Stadium. But the performance put forth by junior running back De'Andre Mann certainly qualified as one of them. By Matt Tait

New look, same old feeling

Jayhawks fail to score in new threads vs. UT

Yeah, the uniforms worn by Kansas on Saturday in front of 36,904 at Memorial Stadium were the modern day crimson chrome uniforms and not the classic reds worn by the Kansas University football team in the glory days of yesteryear. But red is red, a loss is a loss and the 23-0 blow — to the mind, body and soul — delivered by Texas on Saturday had an all-too-familiar ring to it. By Matt Tait
