    Rock Chalk Talk: 43 Days Until Kansas Football: Great Games Coached by Les Miles - 2008 BCS National Title

    When Kansas hired Les Miles to be their football coach, everyone knew that he had a high pedigree and that he'd won a National Championship. Let's dive into that 2007 season before getting to the highlights of Miles' only championship.

    First, the losses. And these are what the BCS committee would consider "good" losses, especially given the circumstances. Both of LSU's losses were in triple overtime. One was on the road to #17 Kentucky and the other was at home to rival Arkansas. Their 11 wins prior to the national title game came by an average of 19 points per game, a stat the BCS must have loved at the time.

  • Rock Chalk Talk: 44 Days Until Kansas Football: Podcast - Big 12 Media Days

    The countdown rolls on, and while we already had an article talking about the Big 12 Media Days, there is still a ton of ground to cover and implications to explore from what happened there.

    To that end, I brought Mike back on to the podcast so that we could talk through what we learned and how it might affect the upcoming season. And we have another discussion about Pooka, the punishment in his case and the reaction surrounding it. This one has the benefit of a bit more reflection compared to our episode with Scott Chasen last week.

  • Rock Chalk Talk: 54 Days: Pooka Back With Team

    Sophomore running back Anthony "Pooka" Williams has been reinstated to Kansas football following a lengthy suspension from all team activities.

    In December, Williams was arrested for domestic battery and immediately suspended by the school, who kept mum about his fate even after the case was decided. Williams reached a diversion agreement with the Douglas County Attorney's office in March, but only today did we get formal word from AD Jeff Long and head coach Les Miles.

    Though Williams is immediately welcome back to team activities, he will have to sit out the season opener against Indiana State.

  • Rock Chalk Talk: 53 Days: The Kansas QB Carousel

    It's not exactly a secret that Kansas has had issues at quarterback since the Todd Reesing era came to an end.

    Well, really they've had issues at every position, but quarterback has been easily the most noticeable, due both to the importance of the position and the lack of any stability whatsoever. As we hope to see a stable plan at QB under new coach Les Miles, let's revisit the trials and errors of signal caller position since Reesing's last game.

    2010

    We got a bad sign right out of the gate when new coach Turner Gill pulled Mark Mangino's chosen heir to the position Kale Pick after just one half of play.

  • Rock Chalk Talk: 57 Days Until Kansas Football: Great Games Coached by Les Miles - Arkansas in 2006

    To give you an idea of how messed up college football rankings were (and continue to be for that matter), the #3 team in the country, the 2006 LSU Tigers, finished third in the SEC West. Third. And of course, this being college football, the teams above them were ranked lower than the Bayou Bengals. But alas, it's when you beat someone in college football, and the LSU Tigers beat the Arkansas Razorbacks in the last game of the season to secure a prestigious bowl berth.

    Number 9 (at the time) LSU traveled north to Little Rock to take on the #5 Arkansas Razorbacks.
