You have to explain things to 58 like a 1 year old...
Channel - I think we are within range of being where other programs are related to roster numbers. Not compared to Alabama, but to other programs that are fairly similar to Kansas. BTW, Wyoming suspended 8 players recently by Coach Bohl. It should affect the roster total numbers but they probably won't see a Kansas type drop off.
Kansas football will rise again (Coach Don Fambrough style, that is)!

So far KUs average yards per rushing attempt is 2.9 which ranks us # 99 tied with UMass and Virginia. Last season KUs average yards per rushing attempt was 3.5 but we ranked lower at # 113.

Against SEMO we ran for 73 yards which ranks us at # 107 tied with Akron and UTEP. Last season KU averaged 119 yards rushing per game but we ranked lower at # 116. Beaty attributed the lack of running production to SEMO using a double eagle defense with 7 in the box.

Our next game against CMU will be a good measuring stick for how much our running game has improved. CMUs defense allowed Rhode Island 3.5 yards per rushing attempt which ranks # 67. CMUs defense also held Rhode Island to 108 yards rushing which ranks # 57. KU should be able to produce a higher average rushing yards per attempt and more total rushing yards against CMU than Rhode Island did.
