Starting over: Change of scenery, offense seem to suit KU receiver Harwell

Woe is me Cramer is posting again. The sky is falling! We will never get another first down!

What Montell Cozart as the starting QB means for Kansas football

The most important part of Cozart, now that he is the choice is his emotional make-up. Is he a guy who can in spite of ups and downs, continue to improve and realize the path he is on and persevere?

There is no question he has all the skills necessary for the job, and at this level as well. Now, can our staff develop a kid with those skills? To me that is the big question.

I have more confidence now that Reagan is on the staff. Prior to this season, we had no coaches on offense besides Mitchell who had experience with spread offenses.

I am convinced Reagan will determine what Montell can do and then refine it so execution is as good as possible. If a talented QB executes well, the offense is going to be challenged to stop him.

Montell Cozart named KU's starting quarterback for 2014

And who thinks if 100 college players on the team know who the starter is that such information would be withheld from the opponents? Naivete!

KU football coaches now turn to chemistry

Interesting that the players Reagan is chatting with in the huddle are defensive players. Maybe he has a plan for the offense none of us have guessed yet.

Spring Game Rewind

If and it is a big if, the D-Line can bring some pressure on the QB this year, we could have dominant defense. But, if not, our defense will be tolerable but will need the offense to control the ball and the clock some.

Column: Kansas corners stand up, out

One of the things missing for some time now is being able to disrupt the opposing offense. We need for Goodman and Reynolds and their backups to get in the backfield and reduce the QB's time to scan the field.

Column: Second-year QB sure looks like Jayhawks’ starter

My observation says he can pass it better than he can pick out the right receiver to throw to at this point.

They ran a play and he failed to see Harwell when he was open. They ran the same play again and he hit Harwell right away for a nice gain.

Once he knows both the plays and players better, this should improve.

Column: Five intriguing elements of KU football's upcoming spring game

I love Brandon Bourbon, but cannot understand why Taylor Cox was not the heir apparent to James. He has proven to me to be a more consistent RB than Brandon. Now that all may have changed once Brandon received consistent reps. Hope so.

Column: Todd Reesing recalls career, has hope for KU's new offense

This article paints Todd just as I would have thought. So confident was he that the stress put on by Warriner just made him better.

I have a feeling it will be a long time before a fan base will feel as affectionate toward its QB as we all did toward Todd. Thanks Reesing for giving us a 25-6 run.

Weis reflects on spring progress

Finally, I feel like the train is beginning to move forward. Who knows what we will see in the Fall, but I know we have a college OC, we have a proven OL coach who has had success at this level and we have a WR coach who has succeeded at this level. Those things by themselves portend of better days ahead for the offense.

I really think we will find out this year whether Powlus can coach or not. He is now working with Reagan who has a very clear picture of what the QB should look like and how he should perform. That should clear up any focus problems Powlus has had in the past.

It will at least be fun to watch it and see.
