If there’s three players Kansas can ill afford to lose for their run at a Big 12 North Championship, it’s QB Todd Reesing, S Darrell Stuckey (1st Team All-Big 12), and WR Dezmon Briscoe (2nd Team All-Big 12.)
Mangino suspended Briscoe (Jr.) last spring citing undisclosed reasons, although sources close to the program say it was academics, before reinstating him back to the team on April 22nd. Even with Mangino’s spring suspension that was supposed to serve as a wake-up call, it apppears that summer classes are not Dezmon’s cup of tea either.
“He’s on the team and he’s day to day,” Mangino said this week. “He’s got work to do and he’s got to take care of it. It’s up to him.”
Briscoe was just selected as preseason All-Big 12. In 2008, he had 1,407 yards and 15 TD’s and was the MVP of the Insight Bowl. The breakout game came vs. Oklahoma where he had 267 receiving yards – the most in Division 1 last season.
RB Jocques Crawford has already left the team after he was suspended for spring ball.
