Painted words and 'Perfect 40s': How Les Miles is working to change Kansas' culture LAWRENCE, Kan. - The main meeting room at Kansas football's Anderson Family Complex has a new addition: white words painted on the gray wall in front. Prepare to take the field with confidence and swagger. Why not now? This practice, this week, this game, this season. We are the most physical team on the field. Phrases like these - there are about 20 in all - were created by members of KU football’s leadership council then put in a location where teammates would see them often. Ten months into Les Miles’ coaching tenure at KU, these mantras might be the most visible example of the new coach’s efforts to build team chemistry.

Matthew Boling, the prep sprinting sensation at Strake Jesuit (Dallas, Texas), who just arrived on Georgia's campus in Athens, is already making an impact before he's attended a single class.

At a football practice earlier this week, Georgia coach Kirby Smart offered the team a 4×100 sprint off against the coaches as opposed to a series of 10 x 20-yard sprints. They eagerly accepted.

The relay played out pretty much exactly how one would expect, with the collegiate athletes edging out to an ever-larger lead against the coaches. That was right until the anchor leg, when Georgia safety Richard LeCounte III, the team's fastest player, was expected to run away from Smart himself.

The sprint medley relay (SMR) is a track and field event in which teams of four athletes compete over sprinting distances as part of a relay race. Unlike most track relays , each member of the team runs a different distance.

It was a humbling experience for LeCounte amidst celebratory delirium, and appeared to be a good time for all. For Boling, it marked his first race on his new home track … and likely the first of a number of victories to come.

As for LeCounte, consider him officially motivated for the coming season:

Oregon joins lawsuit opposing T-Mobile/Sprint merger

Oregon joins lawsuit opposing T-Mobile/Sprint merger Oregon this week became the 15th state (plus the District of Columbia) to sign onto a lawsuit seeking to stop a T-Mobile/Sprint merger. The suit, co-signed by 16 attorneys general, argues that a merger between the country’s third and fourth largest carriers would greatly reduce competition in the wireless industry. “It’s important that Oregon join other states in opposing the Sprint -T-Mobile merger,” said Oregon AG Ellen Rosenblum said in a statement. “If left unchallenged, the current plan will result in reduced access to affordable wireless service in Oregon — and higher prices.
