This game obviously marked the first of the year in which David Beaty was calling the plays. Beaty took over play-calling duties after firing offensive coordinator Doug Meacham after the start of the bye-week.

A few Jayhawks, with their hands on their hips, watched in disbelief. Others stared defiantly into the late afternoon sun, doing their best to stomach the final minutes of a 48-16 defeat at the hands of Texas Tech.

100 Websites That Shaped the Internet as We Know It
What does a spot on this list mean? It certainly doesn’t mean “best.” A number of sites on this list are cesspools now and always have been. We’re not even sure the internet was a good idea—we’ll need another few decades before we come to any conclusions. In this case, we set out to rank the websites—not apps (like Instagram), not services (like PayPal)—that influenced the very nature of the internet, changed the world, stole ideas better than anyone, pioneered a genre, or were just really important to us. Some of these sites seemed perfectly arbitrary a decade ago and turned into monstrous destinations or world-destroying monopolies. Other sites have been net positives for humanity and gave us a glimpse of what can happen when the world works together. In many ways this list is an evaluation of power and who has seized it. In other ways, it’s an appreciation of the places that still make the web worth surfing.
