Oklahoma State 58, Kansas 10
It's hard to write about this game, because of the tragic car crash at the homecoming parade that preceded it. But the game actually proceeded exactly as I thought. Kansas had trouble moving the ball because of Oklahoma State's superior defensive line. Ryan Willis took a lot of hard hits.
You can also see how easily Oklahoma State scored. What was particularly troubling was the amount of penalties. Kansas coach David Beaty said he wanted his team to be the smartest team in the league, that they had to be to have a chance in most games. That didn't happen. Kansas reached double-digit penalties, including three chop blocks. One of those chop blocks took us from first and goal near the end zone, to first and goal closer to the 20. The lack of discipline is disturbing at this stage of the year. In a season where we know Kansas won't win any games, this has been Beaty's biggest failure.
|Ryan Willis||It's hard to improve when you're running for your life.|
|Larry Mazyck||Multiple penalties and a tantrum on the sideline
|Daniel Wise||Wise looked a lot better, holding his own and getting penetration on running plays. He's a red-shirt freshman, so I'm excited to see his progress as a defensive lineman.
|Matthew Wyman||Wyman looked better punting the ball, with the exception of one bad snap which lead to a hysterical blocked kick. His leg will be exhausted.|
