Kansas running back James Sims (29) celebrates a touchdown in KU's last football game Saturday against West Virginia University in Morgantown, W.Va.
During a disappointing 2012 season, Kansas University junior James Sims became the 11th Jayhawk all-time to rush for 1,000 yards or more in a single season and established himself as one of the top backs in the Big 12.
