So the majority of you guys think KU is on par with Virginia in football this year based on your picks for this weeks game? Virginia is BAD and led 27-10 at Southern Miss on Saturday on the road!!! I know that SM came back and won (barely), but C'mon. The more we win, the more fickle people get. Remember, with all of our "struggles" this year we are outscoring teams 42-9 and are 5th in the nation in total offense. I don't get it.

A huge win this weekend would go a long way toward getting past this feud business. I think the leaders and genuinely good guys on the team step up this weekend and deliver a huge win. A handful of idiots hurt the image of the whole team, but Todd, Kerry, Darrell, Jake, etc. are the leaders of our on-field image, and they will have a lot to say about what Kansas really aspires to be.

MIAMI 24-16

I agree, blow up week for KU. 2+ touchdowns of over 50 yards. Big special teams week and 3+ turnovers for the D. I think Kansas has played better competition than people think this year, and much better than 2007 and they've handled these games in a workmanlike fashion, while never really putting it all together. Very fixable problems all over the field, the kind of problems a KU fan likes to see knowing who our coaching staff is.

Flying under the radar a little bit, and I think they still will be until after Colorado.

khelm - why doesn't this year look like 2007 to anyone other than me. I like how things are setting up.

Billy Derringer 10 years, 8 months ago

KANSAS 45-16



GT 24-21

MIAMI 31--14

Good Lord, where is the love for Vah Tech? I forgot it's early in the season, Miami's bandwagon is maxed out.

Kansas 49-13

Kansas State 13-3

T Tech 45-31

North Carolina 27-21

Miami 30-13

Washington 24-17
