Meier now catching balls
Kansas wide receiver Kerry Meier
leads the nation with 29 receptions. KU coach Mark Mangino
said it's remarkable considering Meier, a former quarterback, still plays both positions.
"What's amazing is he still spends more than 50 percent of his time as a backup quarterback at practice,” Mangino said. "He doesn't attend wide receiver meetings. The only time he's with the wide receivers is when the quarterbacks and wide receivers meet together. That's once or twice a week.”
Lubbock was deluged with heavy rain days leading up to Saturday's home game against SMU.
"It rained for three solid days,” said Texas Tech coach Mike Leach
. "(One day at practice) it started pouring. We're talking Noah's ark pouring rain... It wasn't a fun experience. There was standing rain. The pump on our drain got shorted out.
"By midnight we had two feet of water. The maintenance department got out this pump the size of a lawn mower. That didn't pull any water off.
