The prevailing message to come out of the Kansas University football team’s Friday afternoon news conference, during which the university announced that it will be putting on sale tickets to the 2008 Insight Bowl?

Receivers peeved Mangino

KU coach: Wideouts not blocking well

As of Sunday night, Kansas University coach Mark Mangino had watched enough film of his team's 37-34 loss to South Florida to know this: The Jayhawks' receivers, despite their statistical achievements, have a long way to go. Asked whether he thought the Jayhawks' receiving corps was as deep and talented as any he's had at Kansas, Mangino replied, "I thought they were up until (Friday) night. I think we have a mentality with some of our receivers where they want to catch passes. But as far as the other things that come with the game - running precise routes and blocking - I thought we were very sub-standard."
