    I put this in the football forum but anything goes, within reason. Hoops. Off topics stuff, CF in general, etc.

    Haven't written a mailbag in a while so with the bye week, I figured it was worth throwing a change-up.

    Fire away.

    When do we get the basketball starting line-up? Who’s do you think will be the starting 5? Who are the first two off the bench?

    What happened in the basketball scrimmage today?

    Should I panic more about football or basketball? ;)

    What do you think about the Murray twins committing to Iowa and how will that help or hurt our chances with Foster?

    Does the football team have a screen game in their back pocket?

    Also will we see more power formations as the season progresses, as ever since it was teased against WSU it was believed that it may be seen more often.

    After beating Oklahoma a few years ago, it was believed at the time that bringing the lanram package really seemed to mess with them mentally more than anything, and although it is viewed as a bad idea, but since they want to limit hits on purdy, is it time to start bringing in the Re-al package more often, and hopefully seamlessly, to try to get a mental edge?

    And finally could this be the year we peak in November instead of October, and do you think campbell has been focused on that(peaking later instead of earlier)?

    Is campbell aware that the offensive playcalling seems to have lacked creativity the last few novembers, do you think, and do you think we could get some new wrinkles put in during the bye week?

    A Co-worker bet me that KU would beat ISU in a best of 3 between the 3 matchups in football and basketball this year. I took that bet assuming that football was a gimme and the clones could pull out at least one of the basketball games. How concerned should I be with my bet?

    How will Brock Purdy and the offense as a whole continue to improve as teams bring the heat on defense.

    Seems like a bad bet for you.

    I’m thinking Campbell has to be aware of the calls be made on offense. Why do you think they abandoned a successful rushing attack...especially as poorly as Purdy was throwing all day?

    Why did Campbell allow Manning to call the game he did when things clearly weren’t working?

    Is there a reason why we the coaches are not allowing Purdy to run? Because our offense seems to be at its best when we utilize his running ability

    Is 7-5 a disappointment? It seems to be a reasonably good year but it just tastes like a disappointing one. And now with the okie st loss it almost feels inevitable at this point.

    It was a bad bet considering b-ball will lose 2 to KU

    Was this the most disappointing loss of Campbell era? Reminded me of 2012 Steele Jantz drop ball game vs Tech.
