didn’t resign last week Ousted Kansas State football coach Ron Prince said Wednesday that would have been considered quitting on his Wildcats and he wasn’t about to do that And his team didn't quit on him Saturday either at leak at die start But there was something amiss something lacking throughout the 41-24 loss to No 13 Missouri at Faurot Field mostly involving Prince and his actions “I thought our players gave terrific effort tonight” he said And his players insisted their coach did as well at least his usual effort which some reluctantly grumbled should have yielded Prince more time at K-State The Wildcats saw little change in their leader NANUS ST 14 "It’s the same” line-N11 backer Reggie Walker said "He coached us the same we got prepared the same Everything is the same” Except it wasn’t The purple pants he introduced at Louisville were shelved replaced with the standard silver perhaps a subtle nod to the looming shift in the direction of the program Maybe — and Prince would never admit as much — an act of resignation But his sideline behavior at least from afar was different He used the same 11 players on offense during the first half There were fewer high-fives from the coach fewer displays of emotion He spent a majority of the first half with his arms folded across his chest or his hands on his hips Usually there wasn't a person within a few yards On Jeremy Madin’s

INCOIhl Neb — From the moment the Kansas Jayhawks reputed for fall camp cm die first day of August they have beat fixated on one thing: Winning the Big 12 North After losses to South Florida Oklahoma and Texas Tech KU could find comfort in the £act that their ultimate goal waa still there for die taking “That’s why this one hurts the most” KU cometback Justin Thornton said after the Jayhawks crushing 45-35 loss to Nebraska on Saturday “It wasn't die feet that Nebraska beat us It’s the fact that we're not in control of our own des tiny at this point” KU which fell to 6-4 and 3-3 in the Big 12 must win its last two games against No 5 Texas in Lawrence and No 13 Missouri in Arrowhead Stadium to win the Noth for die fust time Even if die Jayhawks pull off that miracle finish they would need Nebraska to lose to Kansas State or Colorado to represent the North “We’re playing for championships” KU wide receiver Deznun Briscoe said “and we fell short of it” Despite not being officially eliminated In the division race there was a finality in Briscoe's voice Of course anybody who watched the beating Nebraska applied to Kansas in die second half couldn’t blame him for dropping the pretense The Cornhuskers scored 31 points converting on evoy possession until they milked the dock to zero Please see KANSAS Page 10D Nebraska’s Roy Helu (10) jumps over KlTs Anthony Davis (30) for a

ball reason because of a concussion Wichita State was forced to kind of fake it in the backcourt Good guard (day is not an easy thing to fake The Shockers turned the ball over too much They didn't make enough shots or get enough steals Guard play was to put it nicely not a team strength That was especially the case when Braeuer sat and watched games in street clothes He’ll do that again this

seemed more at odds with its purpose than after an overtime loss at Indiana State in February Coach Gregg Marshall spoke his mind loudly and dearly after the Shockers blew a 21-point lead in the second half and lost by 10 in overtime The most important sentiment: Tm not going to go through this again next season Then: I'm not sure who gets on the plane to Wichita It was that kind of season
