Prediction Time



  • Kansas is still playing football believe it or not. They will be at home for the final time this Saturday to take on the Shorthorns of Texas, at 2:30 on espn. Texas is a team that we haven’t beat since 1935 ( got raped in 05 and 12). Texas has the best athletes in the conference and always has a top ten recruiting class but have failed to really put it together with Charlie Strong at the helm. They are lead by a Freshman QB in Shane Buechele, who has put up decent numbers and I think will grow into a solid player. Their strength matches our weakness in running the ball, their top RB Foreman already has over 1600 yards on the year and could get to 2,00o Saturday on our weak run defense, Defensively they have struggled mightily and give up 33 points a game. Texas has came in with no pulse the last few trips to Lawrence hopefully that trend continues and we can finally make them pay for it. The key to me is the offense has to continue making progress under Stanley. We cant abandon the run like last week, we have to keep their defense on the field to have a chance Saturday. Texas 35 Kansas 16 RCJH



  • Texas has 5 losses this season - the worst by 18 pts, the others by 7, 5, 3 & 4. Four of those losses were on the road. They’re on the road vs KU, but it’s not going to matter. They have the best running back in the league (if not the country) and he will have 250 yds and 5 td’s against us. Final score : 58-14.



  • @nuleafjhawk 14 pretty generous huh? Up from 1?



  • @Crimsonorblue22 They’re getting better. Plus, it’s a home game. Plus it’s basketball season and me, you and @kjayhawks are the only ones looking at football stuff. lol

    I’m offended by that remark! I need a safe space now!



  • @kjayhawks The game is actually going to be on ABC for whatever reason in Big 12 country and ESPN2 for everyone else.



  • Kansas has put a couple of scares into UT in recent history. What the hell, I’ll pull the trigger and say KU pulls the upset 28-27 because UT misses a 48 yard FG to win the game.



  • @Texas-Hawk-10

    May I offer you some Jayhawks coloring books and crimson and blue crayons?



  • OK, after a sleepless night thinking about KU football, I’ve revised my prediction. Texas 66 - KU 43. All of the factors listed above, but I forgot that Texas’ defense really isn’t very good. But they can move the ball…



  • @nuleafjhawk you have gone crazy!😉



  • @nuleafjhawk Are you okay? both of your predictions are less than the usual 80 point loss lol



  • Oh, I’m still paying attention to KU football. Most of the time, I wonder why. Despite our failures and struggles, it’s D1 football, which I love. Our defense must play better against Texas. I sure like the play of Mike Lee and the other defensive backs. Mike Lee should be another KU Aquib Talib and Chris Harris type contribution to the NFL. Boy, do we need a D1 quarterback. I assume Stanley starts again. OK, cross my fingers- KU 32, Texas 30. RCJH



  • @stoptheflop did you read kusports today? We have one visiting



  • @kjayhawks lol - well, it was kind of fun to make the stupid predictions, a little bit of that is out of pure frustration - i desperately want us to be good in football, but i really do believe that we’re showing improvements and may be ok in a few years.



  • KU plays tough, but ultimately just can’t stop the run.

    38-28 loss.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I’m going to reserve thought and judgment on all quarterbacks until I see them play.Before the season, I thought Ryan Willis was going to have a great year this year. But, one hundred turnovers proved me wrong.



  • The offensive line has looked alot better the last few weeks, fewer sacks and better running lanes for our backs. If we just had a QB i think it would make a big difference. We do have a transfer from Washington State visiting this weekend as @Crimsonorblue22 said. We also have that bama transfer for next year so I looking for vast improvement this offseason.



  • I’m predicting a win guys. UT in sub 50 degree weather always struggles… Them boys don’t like the cold and always get a slow start in Lawrence.

    Beaty is due for a win. I do think he works hard. And at some point hard work is due to pay off. This was the game I looked at on the schedule as a possible win.

    Recipe for a win if you ask me. We got a taste of what a real win might feel like last week. We can feast on a freshmen QB and load the box. If we lose, lets lose playing M2M with them throwing the ball. Don’t let them do what they do well. Force them to out talent us.

    As for us being able to score more points than them, defense is going to have to put up at least one TD and special teams needs to not suck for one whole game.

    Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every once in a while. Let’s get ours tomorrow.



  • @kjayhawks and also, 1935… Jesus we are due.

    Yikes.



  • Thanks to the 10 or so fans who are interested enough or brave enough to post here about KU football. I enjoyed the Iowa State game until the last 10 minutes of the game. I guess that’s something. We will see today if we have a defense that’s still improving or a defense that is just going through the motions. Iowa State has a solid offense and it took over the game in the second half last week. I hope our defense brings speed, good tackling and emotion to the Longhorns today. RCJH



  • @Crimsonorblue22 ya I saw he is visiting - - - - -not impressed. when he was playing in limited action against D-1 competition he TD- INT ratio NOT GOOD. ya he did ok in Juco - - - that was Juco, but hope he enjoys his visit.

    I STILL say our future QB is red shirting this year, our dual threat QB, bottom line our QB spot is a mess, although Carter has done ok, maybe he could really help down the line - -just got to be or red shirt - -I have a vison lmao - -yes it’s him

    As far as a prediction? - - - YIKES afraid it’s going to be ugly like 48-7, man we have some pieces on Defense – Lee, Armstong, our other D-Lineman his name escapes me we have some nice receivers, some decent RB’S, there will come a day - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer54 We just have to get who we can and do the best we can. I think the ship has sailed on Cozart. But I’m not sure on Willis , he just doesn’t look as good as he did last year no telling how far back that wrist sent him. Stanley is similar to Cozart in the aspect that he cant throw the long ball. Hopefully the Starks kid is really benefiting from his red shirt year and developing into what Beaty wants under center.



  • Anybody watching?

    Defense is trying but the offense just can’t get any traction against a bad UT defense.



  • UT QB just got destroyed.



  • kufball.jpg

    Game summary.



  • I’m trying to watch, but mostly cringing.



  • Defense is trying so very hard.





  • Woooo hoooooo

    AND THEY SCORED



  • Serious question: does Texas fire Charlie Strong during the post game presser if they somehow lose?



  • @BShark yes



  • Go D!❤️💙🏉



  • Could the ref tighten his glasses any tighter?



  • These 15 yard penalties have got to stop. Our players lack discipline.



  • THIS DEFENSE



  • Was it a defensive TD? I missed it on the walk from the car to my apt.



  • @Kcmatt7 Yes pick 6 bye Brandon stewart, if the o could just get going



  • Gotta put one in



  • Meanwhile in Ames.

  • @BShark score?



  • If the Texas defense is bad, what may we call our offense? None of our QBs have been able to throw the ball away to avoid a sack.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 said:

    @BShark score?

    ISU up on TTU 42-3. Not even halftime yet.



  • @BShark wow



  • @stoptheflop nice pass to sims



  • @BShark Good bye Kliff



  • @kjayhawks

    Yeah I don’t think he can survive this.



  • I tell you what this defense baring the first play have played their asses off
