Beaty had first press conference today. Some notes..

Mentioned that they had fun for a bit at Clinton Lake as a team building exercise. Some guys who hadn't been on any wake boards got up right away. Sign that they have some true athletes.

Mentioned Quiv as part of his opening statements. It seems that his decision making just kept progressively worse. Not a bad kid, but the program has standards that he didn't live up to.

Not often do you have first year guys stand out on the first few days, but they had some of that yesterday and today.

Held out Mathews and Tabor (Surprise) for further medical testing.

From the video it seems as though Bender just has a different feel than any of the other QBs. His throwing motion seems easy and he puts it on every guy in stride. Obviously, this is all without pads, and things change when pads are on, but the more the camp goes on, I think Beaty and Co are wanting Bender to take the reins of the offense and go.

All three QBs looked to have a good ball. (Against air, just to reiterate).

The video is out on facebook--not sure if this link works.

Octavius is healthy enough to wakeboard, apparently.

I think it's going to be Bender...but if our line is mediocre again, we may be forced to play Stanley just for his scrambling

Thanks for the update kylecof11. I enjoy reading your posts as they are very informative.

Have heard that Charlot and Sims are our best wide receivers since Briscoe and Meier...

Not saying much considering our previous WRs but still.

I missed this until I read the notebook this morning on the website. But Beaty kind of put Baldwin on blast a little bit. Just because you're from Alabama doesn't mean you're great, even if you think you are, and that he has been on that line, although he has improved.

I'm sure he's using this as a wakeup call for the big fella. I think he wants him to take that RT spot, and he is trying light a fire up his a**

Agree. Beaty said every time a ball came his way, he made a play. In the Spring game, he was going up and attacking balls like no one has since Briscoe. And Sims is likely the best route runner KU has. Meacham is going to want to get the ball in their hands. A LOT. And that will mean nothing but good things for the offense. Those guys are absolute players.

Similar to the discussion about Quiv's attitude potentially making his removal addition by subtraction, I feel that way about Willis and Cozart's QB play.

Stanley was by no means a deity at the quarterback position, but it's crazy when we go from losing 43-7 at Memphis to competing with Iowa State, Kansas State, and Texas and the quarterback (Stanley) was the most notable change.

Slant/Meacham regarding the QB Position, Ben Johnson, and video too:

That's what I like about Stanley. He just seems to have that "it" factor. He's a gamer (Over-used cliché) but he just has that attitude about him. That's where he has the edge over Bender. Bender seems to be calm and collected, but will the guys on the offense adjust well to that after having Stanley for the final 3 games? Time will tell, but I still think Bender will make this offense go. He would have played more at Wazzou if he wasn't behind an NFL caliber QB.
