Kansas lost its top two tailbacks -- Brandon Bourbon and Taylor Cox -- to season-ending injuries last week.
Not only that, but the injuries occurred within 24 hours of each other. But it gets worse for Charlie Weis, whose seat is so hot it must feel like he's sitting on the devil's throne: Darrian Miller, the early projected starter, left the squad in June, and KU's top recruit, freshman Traevon Wrench, is at a junior college after failing to make grades. True freshman Corey Avery or JUCO transfer De'Andre Mann, both new to the school, are now in the driver's seat to start. "While De'Andre and Corey lack experience on the Division I level, they both have had excellent camps," he told reporters Tuesday. "The team is well aware of this situation and is excited to make the run game successful." Mon, Aug 25, 2014 10:01:00 PM
