Did my eyes deceive me or did two KU players get picked up as UFA's for the Chiefs? Y'know, I wanted good things to happen for Dane Crist... but the Chiefs?

I'm hoping McDougald sticks. I'm hoping Crist goes to the chargers and Phyllis goes down

The Chiefs also signed Chase Daniel to a $10 million contract. Their quarterback evaluation seems to be extremely questionable.

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

Ubben's assessment of KU's spring practice and game.

Link

2012 statistical leaders (*returners)

Receiving: Kale Pick (390 yards)
Tackles: Ben Heeney (112)
Sacks: Kevin Young* (2)
Interceptions: Bradley McDougald, Tyler Patmon (3)

Spring answers

2013 Schedule

Sept. 7: South Dakota
Sept. 14: at Rice
Sept. 21: Louisiana Tech
Oct. 5: Texas Tech
Oct. 12: at TCU
Oct. 19: Oklahoma
Oct. 26: Baylor
Nov. 2: at Texas
Nov. 9: at Oklahoma State
Nov. 16: West Virginia
Nov. 23; at Iowa State
Nov. 30: Kansas State


1. No questions at quarterback. As expected, there's not much of a quarterback competition this spring. Michael Cummings stepped in last season and earned a few starts after Dayne Crist struggled, throwing nine interceptions to just four touchdowns, but BYU transfer Jake Heaps has claimed the job this spring. He had to redshirt last season after transferring, but dominated on the scout team. The former blue-chip recruit started two seasons at BYU before transferring.

2. Big growth at linebacker. Kansas needs improvement everywhere, so anywhere it happens is a welcome development. Defensively, linebacker should be a clear strength for a KU defense that improved last year but still struggled. Linebackers Ben Heeney and Jake Love had strong springs and looked much improved. Heeney already played well last season, but he may be a serious All-Big 12 first-team talent next season considering the amount of talent at the position that's left the league since 2012.

3. Defensive playmakers emerging. Kansas brought in tons of junior college talent this offseason, but a few have already stood out in the spring. Defensive back Dexter McDonald left the team and went to junior college last season, but he's back and making an impact, and defensive lineman Ty McKinney stood out during the spring, along with defensive back Cassius Sendish, one of the nation's best juco players at Arizona Western a year ago.

Fall questions

1. Will the streak end? This is by far the most important question of Kansas' 2013 season. The current Big 12 losing streak stands at 21 games, and odds favor it ending before too long. If we're still talking about a 30-game losing streak in Big 12 play this time next year, coach Charlie Weis will be on very, very thin ice. KU came close in losses to Texas Tech and Texas last season, but a win is a win. The Jayhawks haven't experienced that in Big 12 play since a 2010 win against Colorado, and haven't beaten a current Big 12 team since beating Iowa State in the 2009 conference opener.

2. Is Jake Heaps really any different from Dayne Crist? Optimism is high around Heaps after KU's other transfer quarterback, Crist, flamed out last season and lost his starting job to a freshman. Heaps has better weapons than Crist, highlighted by Oklahoma transfer Justin McCay, but KU's offense is short on depth at the offensive skill positons, and the offensive line has to prove it can block for him and create holes for the running game to soften up defenses. We'll see how well Heaps ultimately does.

3. Can Kansas find offensive weapons? McCay is a big upgrade, but you can't hide from the fact this team went 12 games last season without a touchdown catch from a receiver. That's simply not good enough in the Big 12 and not a problem one receiver can solve. Tony Pierson and James Sims offer a great 1-2 punch in the running game, but will other receivers like Tre Parmalee or Andrew Turzilli step up?

We have to mix it up a bit, need the passing game to at least be average so teams can't just put 10 in the box.

I imagine the Chiefs signing Crist was sort of a favor for Weis or 4 local fans than anything.

camp arm

He might not even make it to camp tbh

Yes, because f'ing Dane Crist is so much more accomplished than Chase Daniel. You are like George Castanza...whatever you want to initially type, you need to stop yourself and do just the opposite. It might make some sense, and it certainly would cut down on the douchebaggery around here.

Some things remind me that even when teams go through a period of frustration, they can come back and climb...

You're right. Daniel has thrown 9 more NFL passes than Crist. He's definitely worth $10 million.

McDougald has a contract. Crist an invite. Opurum I'm not sure but he'll be there as well.
