Even though numbers may not have shown it, I thought Opurum played pretty well at DE.

I'm not sure they can move Opurum back to running back. I'd love it if they did, heck I'd love to see him taking a few reps per game on both sides of the ball. There has to be more with Toben than we're being told. I think the injuries he sustained in Austin last year may have had a permanent impact on his play. I can't believe they'd move a punishing running back who could catch out of the backfield to defense just because he's bigger than what they want and doesn't run a 4.4 in the 40.

I'm tired of football coaching staffs that give us the ol' "violation of team rules" BS. These coaches are all (partially) paid by the state, I think it's time for more transparency in the program. Are they trying to protect Beshears, or avoiding something that would almost certainly enrage their fans? I think you can make a solid case that if Beshears plays at Iowa State KU has a decent chance of winning. I hope for Gill's sake that Beshears did something worse than sending a late night text message.
