The official site released their game notes (PDF) and I see no descernable difference between the depth chart from last week to this week. If you were wondering if this is unique to this year and the answer is no. The official site typically doesn’t update the depth chart unless something truly significant happens so I’ll try to check it each week, but most of the time the depth chart stays incredibly static.

The Port Arthur News’ I.C. Murrell reports that Lamar is down three starters for the year after defeating Kentucky Christian: receiver Kendrick King, offensive lineman Chase Bridgeman, and defensive back Casden Brooks. King is a pretty important player for Lamar, a starting inside receiver.

A-J Media’s Carlos Silva, Jr. write that the result and the play of the Ole Miss game was not good enough said defensive back Justus Parker and the team has to learn from Saturday’s loss:

“It will help us if we learn from it,” he said. “If we sit here and we keep thinking about it and don’t get any better this week and don’t get any better next week, that’s when it will hurt us. If we get better from it, learn from it and look at all the mistakes that we made and find out what we gotta do to beat a team like that, then I think it’s good for us.”

I’ll never understand why the Big 12 doesn’t transcribe their weekly coaches teleconference, but NewsOK’s Berry Tramel pulled a few quotes from Kliff Kingsbury’s press conference from yesterday, and he said he was frustrated and embarrassed:

“Frustrated, embarrassed, the way that game went,” Kingsbury said after a 47-27 loss to Ole Miss in Houston.

He listed the major transgressions. Personal fouls, ejections, an Ole Miss kickoff return for a touchdown, a defense that allowed 210 yards rushing and 336 yards passing.

“That isn’t who we want to be as a football team,” Kingsbury said. “You make those Week 1 mistakes, you’re going to get exposed. We have a lot to improve upon.”

Kingsbury went on to say that he believes the team will make strides moving forward, but Ole Miss exposed Texas Tech.
