Kansas linebacker Mike Lee (11) tries to bring down Texas Tech wide receiver Cameron Batson (13) during the third quarter on Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016 at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, Texas.
It didn’t take Kansas safety Mike Lee long to establish himself as one of the Big 12's most feared bone-crushing tacklers.
Hours removed from the Jayhawks’ nationally televised game at Texas Tech and a late-night flight back home, Mike Lee didn’t want to remind senior Fish Smithson about a highlight hit, a pass breakup or leading KU with 8.5 total tackles in the loss. Instead, the true freshman safety reached out to one of his team captains to apologize. By Benton Smith
