1 - Joe Dineen: Big 12’s leader in tackles for loss added four to his total, one a sack, and had 10 solo tackles and one assist.

2 - Khalil Herbert: Slowed in midseason by a hamstring injury, he appeared to be back in shape and busted a 43 yard run and finished with 71 yards on 10 carries.

3 - Gabriel Rui: Missed his first field-goal attempt, from 48 yards, but made his next three from distances of 38, 40 and 43 for KU’s only points.

4 - Steven Sims: Targeted 14 times, Sims caught seven passes for 42 yards. Was able to find pockets in Baylor’s defense to make himself available, but many of the throws to him were off the mark. Averaged 26 yards on six kick returns.

5 - Tyrone Miller: Had a TFL and a pass breakup among five tackles (four solo).

6 - Dorance Armstrong: One of his three tackles came behind the line.

7 - Daniel Wise: In on three tackles and, as always, occupied multiple blockers.

Does Sims get penalized for running past the Bear that tackled Herbert on his long run. If he even just disrupts his run to tackle, Herbert makes it past and scores a touchdown instead of settling for a field goal. It sure would help if the coaches would tell the receivers to block downfield.

Another stat that speaks volumes is one lb leads country in tackles and lonecker has 1 pt this year. Maybe we should look at personnel more closely
