KUsports.com's Benton Smith and Tom Keegan discuss the Kansas football team's 65-19 home loss to Texas Tech on Saturday, the quarterback rotation between Carter Stanley and Peyton Bender, and the lack of progress following the bye week.
Without a sack through the first four games of the season, Kansas junior defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr. said the bye week helped the Jayhawks diagnose some of their problems creating a consistent pass rush.
"It's just one thing: we were watching the quarterback instead of beating the man in front of us," Armstrong said. "It showed on film."
As a team, the Jayhawks (1-3) have recorded only three sacks heading into Saturday's home matchup against Texas Tech.
KU quarterback Peyton Bender had last Saturday off because of the bye week. That didn't mean, however, he spent his time away from the task at hand — the team's game this Saturday against Texas Tech.
"Yeah, I watched. I watched a lot of the game," Bender said of Texas Tech's 41-34 loss to Oklahoma State. "Definitely try to scout them out a little bit."
Sitting at 1-3 (0-1 Big 12) on the season, Bender and the Jayhawks will look for their first conference win since defeating Texas late last year. Here is what the quarterback had to say on Tuesday with regard to the Red Raiders, KU's bye week and his own performance so far.
With a 20-minute running clock, the Kansas men's basketball team held its annual scrimmage during the end of the Late Night in the Phog on Sept. 30, 2017 at Allen Fieldhouse.
The game ended in a 45-45 tie on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Malik Newman. Devonte Graham led with 22 points while Lagerald Vick scored 17.
His announcement is toward the very end of this feed, when the countdown gets to about 15:00 remaining. It lasts for about 3 or 4 minutes.
After rushing for 291 yards on Saturday against West Virginia in a 56-34 loss, Kansas sophomore running back Khalil Herbert thanked his offensive line and never thought about approaching any records.
Herbert's rushing total is the third-highest single game total in program history and the most in Div. I-FBS game this season.
"No, I'm in the game zone, so I just do what I do," Herbert said. "Do what the coach calls to do. Whatever happens happens during a game."
Kansas football coach David Beaty discussed his dissatisfaction with the fourth quarter, which saw the Mountaineers pull away with a few late touchdowns.
With Big 12 play right around the corner, KU quarterback Peyton Bender met with the media to discuss his own performance through three weeks, as well as that of a teammate who had a career day in the team's 42-30 loss at Ohio.
"He had a rough go the first few weeks of the season," Bender said of running back Khalil Herbert. "Coach challenged him and he had an incredible game."
After the first day of the Kansas basketball team's annual Boot Camp, senior guard Svi Mykhailiuk discussed the start of Boot Camp and his offseason, which included losing 20 pounds since the end of season in March.
In order to cut the 20 pounds, Mykhailiuk said he changed his diet and cut out soda.
Why the change?
"I feel like now I'm faster with the light weight, and I'm more athletic," Mykhailiuk said. "It just helped me overall with the game."
