Jayhawks lament lack of consistency

Yes, it has regressed. Obviously the regression is an inept offense, even more inept than the offense of last year. However, I also am not impressed by our defense. I knew after the SDU game that it was going to be a long year. I had no idea it would be this bad.

I agree with Wat211. We need a dual threat QB. I think Heaps can throw the ball but unfortunately he has no time.

Seeing red: Charlie Weis 'not content with anything' after KU's 54-16 loss to Texas Tech

Unfortunately, I have been a supporter of this staff. However, what you say could very well be correct. On the positive side, last year with the same coaching staff but a different O line, we were very respectable, even with a dud at QB.

To those of us who have been around the game for years, it is very obvious that we lack talent on the O line. That is the glaring weakness of this team and it is sinking the entire ship. Thus, I feel this staff needs this year and next year to make this team competitive and if that does not happen, change will occur.

But, I could change my mind if blow out losses continue this year and it looks like they will. I think we will lose the remainder of our games by greater than 14 points.

However, to your other points, yeah I agree, there is no unity and there is no toughness and there is a lot of quit and when all of those are stirred together in a pot, it means the coaches have lost the team and when that happens the ship sinks. The fans are already gone. We fans are just looking for a smidgen of hope. Just a smidgen, that's all...just a smidgen.

Notebook: Tony Pierson injured; Weis not upset KU fans left early

This O line has demonstrated that it does not run block well or pass block well. Our best offense will come from the spread and quick passes.

No ALBERG, the sky started falling with a poor performance in our first game against a terrible team, SDU. Yeah, I know we beat them 34-14 but the game was much closer than that and that was the first sign. We have not played well in any game and were lucky to beat another terrible team (La Tech). Heaps has almost zero time to throw and we are not blocking well on the run. TT will not be ranked by the end of the year.

We will lose the rest of our games by more than 14 points.

So, yet one more time, I come home from a KU football game pissed and embarrassed. I said after our pitiful play against a horrible La Tech team, that we would not win another game this season. Now I am going to alter that prediction a bit. We will not even be within 14 points of an opponent the rest of the season. The whole team seems to lack unity and toughness and the O line is horrible. They were getting to Heaps with a four man rush all day. He had no time. This team would be hard pressed to have a winning record in the MAC. Some where out there, there has to be a coach that can mold a respectable team with 2 star and 3 star athletes. I am sick of shoddy, rag-tag play.

KU turns attention to stadium revamp

Close the south end and lower the track. Make it a football stadium. I go there to watch football not to look wistfully at the campanile.

Kansas football aims to score more

We all can see it. The weak spot of this team is the O line. Until it gels, we will be inept on offense. I think Heaps is an accurate passer. That is a big improvement. We have the backs. And even our receivers have the ability to rise up. Thus, the pressure on the O line. I still prefer someone in the press box calling the plays.

Opinion: Running on first down best bet for KU

Hey, big shot, I watched the Tulane-La Tech game. Did you? Tulane manhandled them. Offense is both passing and running and Tulane moved the ball at will against them.

Maybe you should think before you post insulting remarks.

Opinion: Running on first down best bet for KU

Unlike many people on this board, I usually like what Keegs writes. However, I could not disagree more with the premise of this article. What makes offenses go (besides having the 5 star Jimmies and Joes) is unpredictability. I sit up in the stands and hear dimwits say over and over again, "Just run the ball." Offenses have to mix it up. Those that don't fail.

I am pessimistic about this O line, however. They seem to be over-matched. That Army team that made mince meat out of La Tech had lost 3 games. Tulane also ran all over La Tech on La Tech's home field. And, neither Tulane or Army are exactly powerhouses this year.

We have an accurate QB this year. Let's use him.
