James Sims tops ratings in return

1. James Sims: Energized the offense with 91 yards and two touchdowns on the ground and 24 receiving yards.

2. Tyler Patmon: Returned an interception 54 yards for a touchdown that put KU up 24-13.

3. Kale Pick: Would have had a 29-yard touchdown reception when he broke wide open, but Dayne Crist’s pass sailed too far. Pick had two receptions for 45 yards.

4. Ben Heeney: In on 12 tackles, seven of them solos, none more impressive than the licking he put on a punt returner by burning down the field well ahead of everyone else.

5. Christian Matthews: Did a terrific job of running the Wildcat and ran for 43 yards on five carries.

6. Anthony McDonald: A very sure tackler, he was in on 11 of them.

7. Jordan Tavai: Had an active night in the middle of the line.

8. Greg Brown: Is tackling much better this season, was in on nine of them and did well in one-on-one coverage.

9. Toben Opurum: Batted a pass and picked up a tackle for a loss.

10. Bradley McDougald: Had a tackle for a loss among his eight tackles.

Not sure why we're calling what Matthews was running the Jayhawk/Wildcat. He was running the read option. Matthews was the QB on the play.

In the Jayhawk, the running back takes the snap and either runs it or passes.

In the Read Option, the QB takes the snap and either runs or hands off.

Just because Crist was on the field doesn't make that a Jayhawk offense.

Christian ran the Jayhawk.

Wasn't this when we missed the extra point, which resulted in 23-13?

It's time. I was surprised to see number 10 in the 4th quarter against TCU....shocked to see him in the 4th quarter today. Two weeks to prepare for KSU...two weeks to prepare a new QB.

Tom, props for asking the tough question at the press conference. Nice work!

Crist is as bad of a QB I've ever seen at KU and I've seen too many bad ones. Put somebody else in there and how much worse could it be? Give somebody else a shot. Wake up, Charlie.

Trying to be more positive, if winning two football games a year means our basketball team plays in the national championship game (like last football/basketball season) I will take it!

You need to start a new list with the bottom 10 performers. Than Crist would have 40 points for being the worst performer each game. He has no business being on a football field. Sad thing is that Weis will never bench him because he is his guy.

Haha, Crist doesn't have 1 point and I don't disagree at all. Sad.

I've been a "lets wait & see" guy so far this season with our QB. It's telling that he hasn't broken into Keeg's list after 4 games. Yes, our wideouts have not been stellar and neither has the pass-blocking by the O-line, but come one, it's time to try something new. What kills us also is he's got NO mobility which makes it even more of a struggle when your O-line is weak on pass protection.

Also - why can't we have Christian Matthews throw once or twice out of the Jayhawk formation?? He's a QB for Pete's sake and the way we had NIU on their heels, it might've been a game breaker - kind of like NIU's Tebow-esque TD play.
