Awesome, more chances for people to see how awful we are...

Sweet, 0-2 on ABC so far this year...can we make it 0-5, or will someone slap some sense into Reesing and get us to go 3-2. :)

This should be embarrassing for all involved.

Win or lose KU athletics still brings in the commercial bucks.

Some years are better than others which is part of the deal.

Nah, MU will have a good day. Texas could play 8-man and beat KU. That one will be u-gly.

Um, pretty sure the network scheduled those games because of their opponents, not KU, merrill.

The last four games have been disappointing, but no more disappointing than the whining on this board. If KU loses out, so be it. These past four years of football have been the best four in a row in 50 years, at least as long as I can remember. When the turf settles this year, why not take a more optimistic approach? Really. I love this team. I love Reesing, Stuckey, Meier, Briscoe, Sharp, Laptad, and the others that have played so hard for Kansas. If you think that you're disappointed, think about how they must feel. Blame all you want to, but it's not their fault that they're not as good as they were thought to be. It looks like the losses at linebacker and OLine are as significant as some thought they might be.

Instead of feeling sorry for ourselves, how about we show up in the stands against NU and support these kids to let them know how much we appreciate their effort, because when it's all said and done, that's what matters anyway. Don't we tell our kids to do their best? Put it in perspective: KU's best right now is 5-4, not 1-8, which we've seen for decades.

It's funny how many of you people jump off the bandwagon as soon as the 'Hawks start losing. Show some support.

Not all the people commenting on this years poor performance are bandwagoneers. Most, myself included, are football people. We are football people who see a large division one school has a tradition of being poor at football, and are frankly tired of the excuses. There are a good many Div I schools that have excellent Football and Basketball programs ( as well as baseball and other sports as well) that are no bigger or better than KU. Is Norman OK a better place to go to school than Lawrence? Really? How about Lincoln NE? Michigan as a state is basically rotting from the inside, yet can still attract quality recruits to both basketball and football at BOTH state Universities.

How is Cincinnati doing this year? TCU, Boise State? BYU and Utah? BYU, BSU and Utah produce year in and year out. Seriously? They can attract good talent to Idaho and Utah, and the Mangenius can't reload every year? Seriously...Kansas State is considered a "football" school now. They used to be even more sucktastic than us!
