'You couldn't ask for a better partner': Dineen, Wise feel they're leaving KU in better position than when they arrived

If he hadn’t spent the past five years in the same football program as Joe Dineen, Daniel Wise could have left Kansas as its all-time leader in tackles for loss. Yet it’s just about impossible to envision Wise, the Jayhawks’ perennial standout on the defensive line the past few years, without his sidekick, Dineen, just behind him at linebacker.

Tied for KU's all-time lead in TFLs, Joe Dineen maintains slim lead over Daniel Wise

When Joe Dineen sacked Texas Tech quarterback Alan Bowman in the final minute of the second quarter on Saturday, it didn’t occur to him that he had just tied Kansas football great Wilie Pless for the all-time program lead in career tackles for loss. By Benton Smith

Record book battle: Both Joe Dineen and Daniel Wise closing in on KU's career TFL mark

Long before their final season in Lawrence began, Kansas football’s standout redshirt seniors, Daniel Wise and Joe Dineen, learned they ranked among the program’s all-time best in career tackles for loss. And with Dineen, a linebacker, leading Wise, a defensive lineman, by 3.0 TFLs, the race to the top, and former KU linebacker Willie Pless’s record of 41 (from 1982-85) was on. By Benton Smith

Winning at top of Daniel Wise's list of goals for his redshirt senior year

Only a few months remain in Daniel Wise’s college football career. And the redshirt senior defensive tackle at the University of Kansas would like to cram as many successes as possible into them. "Our goal is to go to a bowl game and be the best that we can be for KU fans, KU nation and all that," Wise said. By Benton Smith

Daniel Wise determined to complete KU career at his strongest and fastest

As he contemplated leaving early for the NFL, Daniel Wise leaned heavily on his father, 1988 draftee Deatrich Wise Sr., and brother, 2017 draftee Deatrich Jr., for advice. Those conversations included plenty of back-and-forths on various pros and cons. But as Daniel and the other Wise men mulled over his decision, the KU defensive tackle kept circling back to his desire to be NFL-ready as a rookie. By Benton Smith
