Game balls and gassers: KU vs. Oklahoma


Game Balls

Wide receiver Tyler Patrick made a nice move after catching a pass, and took it into the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown. Had five receptions for 46 yards, both team-highs.

Quarterback and holder T.J. Millweard’s quick hands and thinking turned a bad, low snap into a an extra point. So Millweard was responsible for more than 14 percent of KU’s scoring.


Wide receiver Shakiem Barbel dropped a couple of catchable passes in big spots.

Cameron Rosser was flagged for a face-mask on a KU punt, giving the Oklahoma offense 15 fewer yards to progress on a touchdown drive.

Doesn’t quite qualify as a gasser but that pass in the first quarter that was over the head of Sims could have had more effort. Even though it was an unlikely reception, it was not a totally uncatchable pass. Looked like the receiver pulled in his hands and gave up. I was expecting him to dive for it.

I saw that same play by Sims and was surprised he pulled his hands in in a sudden manner. It was like he was afraid to catch it or afraid of getting hurt. We need some bravery from our wide receivers.

That being said, Sims had a pretty good day and is one of the young players I'm looking forward to seeing a lot of in the future.
