Question

Sound off: James Sims

Answer

<b>I know KU football only has three games remaining, but does running back James Sims still have a shot at becoming KU’s all-time leading rusher? </b>

Sims, a senior from Irving, Texas, enters Saturday’s game against West Virginia with 3,185 career rushing yards. That puts him 656 yards behind leader, June Henley (3,841), and 603 yards behind Tony Sands (3,788) in second place. Therefore, in order to pass Henley, Sims would need to average 219 yards per game the rest of the way to claim the top spot. Given the fact that his season average is just 78 yards per game, it seems like a long shot that he would take over the top spot.
