Cozart was big winner of KU's spring game -- but take that with a grain of salt

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- The best pass Saturday was thrown by a wide receiver, if that tells you anything about where the Great Jayhawk Quarterback Derby, Year III, is at the moment. Mind you, the toss in question was pure poetry.
