When the City of New York alone recognizes 31 different types of gender, most of which I had never heard before, the “stereotyped version of gender” went out the window a while back…and it is not coming back any time soon.
@justanotherfan That is way too spot on. I was a kicker in HS. I could hit a 50 yarder in practice and warming up. Longest FG I ever hit in game was 26 yards. It is a whole different ball game live. You have to have 3 guys all do nerve-racking things and do them with perfect timing. The snapper, holder and kicker are all nervous. It also didn’t help that I was a lineman and my legs were pretty much toast by the end of the game. Pretty hard to get juice on the ball when you’ve played 4 quarters in the trenches.
@Texas-Hawk-10 I thought Bender showed the most poise and he played against most of the players expected to start on defense. He had our best receivers too. I’ll have to watch the replay to see how the lines fared against each other. The sacks are overstated since all it took was a touch on the QB. I didn’t see some of the touches, but, the refs were much closer, so I accept their calls. The point was to keep players healthy, so I’m glad the touches were closely called. I was surprised by all the running plays called on third downs. I really wanted to see our QB’s complete some third down passes. Our starting QB must be able to extend drives this year.
Many thanks to Crimson for the stats. Those are very helpful and show just how many receivers we have who will make plays for us this year. The no contact rule on the QB’s makes sense, but I sure thought the refs saw some phantom touches and stopped plays too early.
I was rooting for the offense on every play and probably overlooked the defensive efforts throughout the game. We must improve on offense to become competitive. I was especially focused on the third down plays. Sadly, I didn’t see any improvement there. On defense, the only mistake I saw was the receiver getting 5 yards behind the defense on Starks’s TD pass. Otherwise, all the receivers were well covered and pass completions were hard to come by.
Finally, if the offensive stats are underwhelming to you keep in mind the game was very short due to the running clock. The game was over in less than 2 hours and the teams took a normal amount of time for half time. Kansas football in April is great. Now, I’m looking forward to Kansas basketball in August. RCJH
“Brandon deserved better, he was unlucky”. Truer words have not been said, I was amped for his senior year before the ACL injury. I think he could’ve been a great back. I understand his pain it’s so hard to have your body let you down. I always feel connected to our players, they really do mean a lot to me.
@Kcmatt7 3 guys pushing each other is only going to make them all better. Returning a young OLine mostly in tact while adding Baldwin is going to give KU a much improved OLine. Charlot gives KU a legit 3rd weapon so teams can’t run cover 2 all day to slow down Sims and Quiv. This is the year we see the offense begin to take significant steps forward.
I’m not quite ready to call for a bowl bid yet, I think that’s next year, but I think KU getting bowl eligible this year is more likely than only winning 1 or 2 games is as well. I think KU wins 4 or 5 this year.
Benton Smith over on KUSports has my back on spring football. He even included some video of Monday’s first practice in the indoor facility. I’ve got the feeling 2017 is going to be a breakout year for us. RCJH
