1 - Dorance Armstrong: Recorded a sack for the sixth consecutive game and got behind the line of scrimmage for another tackle and had four solos and two assists. Team’s best player.

2 - Daniel Wise: Caught a fumble in the air, returned it six yards, sprinted off the field in a most entertaining celebration. He’s a really good player.

3 - Fish Smithson: In on nine tackles and did some nice things in coverage as well. Knows how to cut good angles to the ball and stop plays on sidelines.

4 - Mike Lee: Rocked Dede Westbrook hard and popped the ball loose with his helmet so that Wise could catch it and return it six yards. Lee is an exciting talent who makes good plays and bad ones. The ratio’s moving in the right direction. Contributed six solo tackles.

5 - Marquis Roberts: Five solo tackles, one assist, one tackle for a loss.

6 - Brandon Stewart: Did a decent job of staying with Westbrook and it took a great throw and end zone catch on the first touchdown of the night against KU’s defense.

7 - Anthony Olobia: Had three solo tackles, one for a loss.

8 - Tevin Shaw: Far from perfect, he broke up a pass and delivered some bruising hits.

9 - Courtney Arnick: In on four tackles.

10 - Isi Holani: Two tackles, one behind the line of scrimmage.

Did I read too fast, or was there not a single offensive (double entendre intended) on Tom's list this week?

I just hope to hell Beatty keeps his clammy mitts to the special teams and offense.

Nice double entendre. You didn't read too fast. Did I miss anybody? (rhetorical question).

We have some serious studs on both sides of the ball. Missing piece: offensive play calling. Even Charlie Tuna was smart enough to fire himself as OC.

Though that wasn't successful either and he only survived another half season. Hopefully things can get turned around on that side of the ball.

Along those lines, and in the what if category, I find myself wondering at times when watching former KU commit Seth Russell. An elite QB could (and has previously) turn things around.

Folks, until the offensive line is a couple of seasons of working and gelling together, it's not going to matter who's calling the signals or plays (ie O/C).

Sure, maybe Beaty's not the O/C.

But, I'm not ready to throw in the towel on him.

He has upgraded the overall talent level in the program.

The roster depth is building as well.

Afterall, former A/D Bob Fredricks hired an assistant who had NO head coaching experience to take over the men's basketball program.

Granted, Coach Brown did not leave the cupboards bare. But, they were better stocked (compared to what Coach Beaty and Bowen were handed).

Rock Chalk!
