Video: Dayne Crist, Toben Opurum give their reasons for optimism in 2012
With everything going on at Big 12 media days, there's not always enough time to get every video downloaded and posted into the live blog.
With that in mind, here are five more short video responses from KU players and coach Charlie Weis that we weren't able to get up Tuesday.
• KU senior defensive end/linebacker Toben Opurum explains specific instances where he's already seen leadership from new quarterback Dayne Crist.
• Speaking of Crist, I asked him which players he thought might surprise fans in 2012. He actually came up with five.
• During his time on stage, Weis made a few reporters laugh when he referred to Notre Dame transfer linebacker Anthony McDonald and tight end Mike Ragone as 'my blockheads.' Weis explains what he meant by the nickname here.
• Opurum talks here why he's optimistic about this season, hinting perhaps that this offseason has been different from past years at KU.
• And finally, Crist also talks about why he's optimistic for 2012, saying he can sense a desire from KU's players to win and improve.
