• KU safety Lubbock Smith is doubtful for the OSU game with a concussion.
• Gill believes the potential is there for KU to build a dynasty and build a program in football. That’s why he accepted the job at KU.
• Quinn Mecham will start at quarterback for KU. Gill says KU could play both Mecham and Jordan Webb.
• KU will do different things to disrupt the timing of OSU’s passing offense. The biggest goal is to disrupt OSU quarterback Brandon Weeden.
• Last week, Webb was somewhat limited in practice. He did get some reps. This week, Webb shouldn’t be limited at all.
