Meacham's familiarity with TCU assisting KU's preparation for No. 4 Frogs

Kansas football defensive coordinator Clint Bowen didn’t have to look far this week to find an expert on key members of TCU’s offense. Typical video study on his own, of course, could have shown Bowen what the No. 4-ranked Horned Frogs have done to propel the team to a 6-0 start. But Bowen also prepared for the Jayhawks’ nationally-televised road challenge by picking the brain of KU offensive coordinator Doug Meacham. By Benton Smith

KU offense showing progress under coordinator Doug Meacham

While the addition of offensive coordinator Doug Meacham to the Kansas football staff hasn’t yet translated to more victories, the Jayhawks’ current version of the Air Raid offense has proven more effective than the 2016 model. Through four games a year ago, when Meacham still worked for Gary Patterson at TCU, the KU offense floundered, averaging just 353 yards — 102nd among FBS programs. By Benton Smith
