The Trib (Dave Matter): James Franklin finds a mentor in veteran QB
Jimmy Costello decided late in the 2010 season that he wouldn't come back for his final year of eligibility and instead wanted to focus on the next stage of his life. He graduated in May and had plans to enlist in the military this fall. But when Tyler Gabbert left the team in May and Missouri's quarterback depth suddenly looked grim for 2011 — Pinkel likes to have four scholarship QBs on the roster — Pinkel reached out to the former walk-on. He called Costello's decision to put off career plans and return for one more season "really cool."

Gotta say ... I'm curious how Kansas' transition to a 3-4 goes considering they decided to do it after spring practices. I guess they don't have the talent to win much this year anyway, no matter what defense their in, so it really doesn't matter. I like the 3-4, and I respect a move, but ... am thinking they're looking at another lost season in 2011.
