Feature on Football Team

As the features on the Kansas football team begin to trickle in, certain tropes are beginning to appear consistently: Reesing's little, Mangino's fat tough, and nobody recruited any of these guys. Aditi Kinkhabwala's piece is the best I've read so far if for no other reason than that she recognizes Todd Reesing's penchant for snake handling as a joke and that she gets Reesing to admit that he's scared to say on record that he and his teammates were amused by Raimond Pendleton's public haranguing.

When Reesing was asked if he and his teammates sat in their dorm rooms, replayed that video and maybe laughed, the quarterback sighed and said, "I don't want to get myself in trouble. Can we just say it wasn't a big deal?"
