Tim Biere top-rated Jayhawk through five games


1. Tim Biere: As expected (see Cram Session), Biere’s talents translated to the better competition. He caught seven passes for 93 yards and a touchdown that gave Kansas the lead.

2. JaCorey Shepherd: True freshman streaked down the left sideline for a 68-yard touchdown.

3. D.J. Beshears: Outstanding leaping ability makes up for short stature. He caught four passes for 46 yards and returned a punt 15 yards to go along with his solid kick returns.

4. Jordan Webb: Lost a fumble and threw two interceptions (one telegraphed badly when he threw on the run), but also completed 25 of 36 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns. He really does throw a pretty downfield pass.

5. Tony Pierson: Lost a fumble, but also scored a touchdown on a 31-yard run. He’s faster than a speeding train.

6. Toben Opurum: Looked so fast flying off the edge for a nine-yard sack.

7. Nick Sizemore: Blocked a punt.

8. James Sims: He never stops grinding and his ability to catch out of the backfield and deliver punishing blocks calls to mind former KU running back Clark Green, except that Sims has more talent.

9. Ron Doherty: Continues to showcase a strong foot. Averaged 46.2 yards per punt with a long of 59.

10. Jimmay Mundine: Guy’s got talent. A more dedicated approach to offseason conditioning could result in big things for him next season.

Be an example and show them how to transfer or stop being whiny little b*tch. Your material got stale and repetitive a long time ago.

The comment didn't say you were wrong, that was not the point of the comment.

ahnotreallymuchtosay - you are the Debbie Downer of this website - what an impressive legacy you are handing down to your children -"What were you Dad?" "Oh I was a real negative ***hole, spending hours a day posting the same mindless garbage - let me show you some of my great posts!". You must be SO proud. Idiot.

OK, that was a really tough team. Hopefully, we play someone easy next Saturday. Who do we play next?

Unfortunately, didn't get to see the game, but still amazed that 3 TO's gets you in the top 4. A top 10 O doesn't need the extra advantage of doubling their posessions, and with short fields none the less.
