Iowa State is the best chance to win, but I did watch the Texas Tech/Texas game. Texas was physical early in the game and took it right to them in Lubbock. We weren't dominated in the first halves against Kansas State in Manhattan or Baylor in Waco. In fact, we should have had the lead in Baylor at the half, but that wasn't because Baylor stopped it from happening. It was a foolish Offensive PI. All Omigie had to do there was to run to the spot to the defender's right, stop, and turn around and force the defender to either commit PI on Omigie, but either way, Kale Pick caught a touchdown pass that didn't count. 21-17 at the half Kansas would have led. Then, the second half, INTENSITY should be the same as it was at the start of the game.

Yeah, I know Texas Tech is good on offense, and they were good against Texas on offense too, but Texas played physical. Kansas can play physical too, if they want to. Especially on the screen plays. Put the defenders on the ground on the edge and force the slower lineman to pursue and wear them out.

If our receivers don't get physical in the running game, and when they go on a route, sell the fakes with sharp breaks, then run right past them and let the QB just lay it out there. Tech will play Man to Man as long as our receivers can't get open, and our receivers have to in order to keep the opponents from stacking the box in the second halves of games.

If we can get some completions even if they're just curls and hooks 8 to 10 yards deep or short crossing patterns behind the linebackers and force them to pursue from behind, KU can win. Weis, PLAY CALLING. I know the whole play book isn't in yet, but it's beyond time to be conservative. If KU can get 1 or maybe even 2 wins, the kids returning next year will start to understand what it takes. EFFORT. I do realize that TG is still hanging with this team, but it's wearing off.

I once looked forward to this game hoping we would win. Now I look forward to basketball season which isn't my favorite sport despite being a Kansan and a KU grad.

This is by far KU's most winnable game. Last year's game at ISU was close so this might be one KU should win. Our seniors deserve to win their final home game.

6 pm on Nov 17th. It will be cold and, unfortunately, that will force attendence down. I will definitely be there but my optimism for the year faded very quickly after I saw the performance against SDSU. However, I really thought that we could pull a few out. After that dismal performance against Baylor, the odds of pulling out a win in the remaining games is very low.We do not match up well against TT or WVU. And ISU plays together.

If the students won't stay past halftime for an 11 a.m. game, why would they stay past halftime at a 6 p.m.? Will see!
