For a while on Thursday, Turner Gill's only Big 12 victory in his two seasons at Kansas was attributed to "terrible" officiating.

That's how the Jayhawks' 52-45 victory over Colorado in 2010 was described on the website bio page of quarterback Jordan Webb, the former KU quarterback who has transferred to Colorado and has been named the starter.

But the biography on was edited on Thursday morning. Before it was, it read: "(Webb) started seven games and played in nine overall, missing games eight through 10 after being injured against Texas A&M (which included the Colorado game where KU rallied with the aid of terrible Big 12 officiating for a 52-45 win)."

That KU victory, by the way, was the only Big 12 triumph in the Turner Gill era (1-16). The Jayhawks trailed 45-17 with 14:52 remaining and became the largest deficit overcome for a KU triumph. It was Colorado's final game in Lawrence. The Buffs had announced they were Pac-12 bound.
