David Beaty: Offense looked better, but Jayhawks aren't scoring enough

The 250 passing yards and season-high 204 rushing yards posted in a loss to Oklahoma State allowed David Beaty to call his offense an improved product this week. The reality of life in the Big 12, though, meant the University of Kansas football coach could hardly characterize the effort as a success. By Benton Smith

Ive been vocal about the opinion that comparing games where Ryan Willis started (TCU and Baylor) represent a different caliber of team than those faced by Cozart. Ive been on record as saying some of the difference in performance is due to this. With the games coming up, Cozart will have a chance to prove me wrong and shut my mouth on the subject once and for all. Im going on record now, though, saying Cozart will have performances much worse than his outing vs. OSU, and worse than Willis' performance vs Baylor. Crazy? We'll see. (But Im handing you the ammunition to use against me in the event that Im wrong). In any event, it's always important, guys, when comparing quarterbacks, that you account for variables in such a way as to keep the comparison as "apples-to-apples" as possible. Nothing will ever convince me that Cozart is a better quarterback than Willis. Willis just lacks the experience level Montell has had. If he were availed of a similar advantage there would be no comparison to be made at all.
