For breakdown and a prediction on each game, check out week 4 of Conference ChatterTV below:

Football beat writer Matt Tait had a story today on how Kansas coaches are trying to keep everything as simple as possible for red-shirt freshman quarterback Jordan Webb. The idea is to take the pressure off such a young player in the most important position on the field.

Webb has completed 60.4 percent of his passes (very solid for a first-year QB) with 376 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Good ratio.

He's taken way too many sacks (10), but it appears the Jayhawks have their quarterback of the future.

And he's not afraid to light up defenders.

I was surfing YouTube today and found a highlight that many of our KUsports.com readers figure to enjoy.

You may have seen it against Georgia Tech, but Webb puts a Yellow Jackets linebacker on the ground. If you don't remember it or didn't see the game, check this out:

Jacked up.

I suppose there won't be too many questions about Webb's toughness.

That should be all for now. If you're not subscribing to my YouTube channel or following me on Twitter for Big 12 updates, hit me up over there.

Enjoy the games in week 4. And as always, discuss.

So the hardest hitting player on KU's offense is the quarterback.....thats not something to be bragging about fellas!

dani36921 7 years, 2 months ago

Wow, no. It wasn't meant to label him as the toughest player on the offense. You cannot judge that by one play. But, I think it is something to brag about. How many QBs do you see hitting that hard during a play?

BruceWayne 7 years, 2 months ago

I'll tell ya what a hard hit is...steel bridge. EGIN!

If only Michael Bishop could read emaw's comment...

emaw, don't you have anything better to do, or do you actually have a degree from KSU and are just waiting for your pizza delivery job to start...

Shane Garrett 7 years, 2 months ago

Are you implying that emaw has a drivers license? Giving emaw credit for a degree also?! wow.

So_tired_of_the_whiners 7 years, 2 months ago

He could always deliver on a riding lawnmower or one of those mini-bikes. And I am giving him credit for a KSU degree, not a real degree... The degree my dog has from her obedience class it worth more than a KSU degree...

Hey KU fans, how many of you post on the Manhattan newspaper? Not me.

emaw 7 years, 2 months ago

How many KU students does it take to screw in a light bulb? 25.......1 to screw it in and 24 to figure out how to turn it into a bong!

Emu, get back to work: the drive-thru lane is backing up. Be sure and ask them if they want fries with that!
