Branstetter's kick, celebration vault him to top spot


1. Jacob Branstetter: Set the unofficial world record in the 100-yard dash sprinting to the locker room after kicking a 57-yard field goal on the last play of the first half.

2. Darrell Stuckey: Again showed why he is KU’s most consistent defender.

3. Toben Opurum: Power runner gained 59 yards on 13 carries.

4. Justin Springer: Had nine tackles, two for losses, and added a quarterback hurry.

5. Maxwell Onyegbule: Returned to early season form, getting into the backfield on multiple running plays.

6. Ryan Murphy: Became the first KU player to pick up his second interception.

7. Huldon Tharp: Looked quick in picking up seven tackles and also broke up a pass.

8. Alonso Rojas: Put two punts and nearly a third (touchback) inside the 20 and averaged 40.3 yards per punt. So what? Hey, it was a slow day for KU.

9. Jake Sharp: Second effort led to a 56-yard gain on a reception.

10. Kerry Meier: Had eight receptions for 54 yards.

You should take 28 points from Reesing. The opponents have the last two weeks.

Pretty good one, Sparko, I must admit.

The only good news I could find from the Oklahoma debacle is that when Reesing looks like the worst player out there, you know Kansas can improve quickly.

If Reesing quickly gets back to form, Kansas can take out Tech and be right back in the hunt.

gringo - hope you don't gamble on that one.

Like it or not, Reesing has performed wretchedly in 6 of his last 8 quarters.

I try to find the silver lining, but fear we're going to get humiliated by TT.
