A Football Slam Dunk from the WSJ

  • The WSJ’s The Count has an article this morning about football teams outscoring their basketball teams against common opponents in the same school year. The jump off is that Baylor is basically posting basketball scores this season and since 96-97 Oregon has done this the most. Here is the link: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304402104579149611207357416

    At here is where it gets good for KU basketball but bad for KU football: “No football team has been on the other side of this inter-sport rivalry more than Kansas’. Between 1996 and 2013, there were 13 basketball games in which teams scored less against the Jayhawks than their football teams did. Those in Kansas’ camp include basketball blue bloods like Kentucky (11 times), Duke (8), Indiana (8) and UCLA (8), but the Jayhawks could further separate themselves from the pack Saturday—when their football team hosts Baylor.”

  • @azhawk97 Thanks for posting this. I would be entertained if I wasn’t so sad about the state of KU football. Here’s hoping it improves in the years ahead.
