KU 31, W. Va. 19

Box score

Montell Cozart for doing a terrific job of managing the offense in his first career start. He rushed for 60 yards and didn’t turn it over once.

James Sims for a 211-yard rushing day that included runs of 62 and a career-high 68 yards. They were the two longest rushes of the season for KU and both came in the second quarter.


Whoever selected the jersey color scheme. The numbers were easy to see on TV, but the announcers couldn’t see them from the press box, which had to make it difficult for them to paint a picture for the fans listening on radio.

Aslam Sterling for a holding penalty late in the opening drive, a big factor in KU having to settle for a field goal instead of a possible touchdown.

One holding call a "gasser" ... really a cheap shot at one of the guys doing the toughest job on the field, victim of the hardest call referees have to make.

Now, tell us about his blocking for the long run up the gut just before halftime ... please?

Jonathan Allison 8 years, 10 months ago

I agree, giving Sterling a gasser is very unfair. He played well for all but about two snaps.

Here's been more than adequate since moving back to Right Tackle mid season, and he's our best run blocker.

When is the last time KU drew that small a crowd for a conference game?

Phil Leister 8 years, 10 months ago

Didn't you used to be a writer or editor or something? Look it up man. And quit being so damn negative on these boards.

W Keith Swinehart II 8 years, 10 months ago

Chuck was always negative when he wrote for the LJW (if it's the same Chuck Woodling). Also, was Chuck at the game?

Jim Roth 8 years, 10 months ago

Chuck wasn't negative. He was hilarious. He makes good points.that are worthy of consideration. It's fine if you want to be a cheerleader, but these boards used to be a place for genuine discussion rather than mere platitudes. It appears to me that the former Sports Editor, who spent most of his career covering this team and has knowledge and insight to contribute, has merely been trying to regenerate.some of the intelligent and thoughtful discussion we used to find on this site before the recent kerfuffle over names and verification killed most of it.

Gasser to Willis for the stupid personal foul.

W Keith Swinehart II 8 years, 10 months ago

We were good in the foul department until the very end. Personal fouls have been big drive killers all year long. Willis's weak gesture at the end was not deserving of the call by the ref. Of course, his was a retaliation foul.

Kit Duncan 8 years, 10 months ago

Hands to the face in front of the official is an automatic call. It may have been retaliatory and, if he had shoved the WVU player back, would probably have received a verbal warning. Slapping the other player in the face? Automatic!!
