Now, it is not "if", but "where"! Go Hawks!!!! Remember, official KU colors are Crimson and Blue, BIG BLUE - no black in that statement.

First thing first, Kansas is over-rated. Their strength of schedule is 98th out of 120. Their first 4 games were against little girls. They have only played one ranked opponent that being then #24 ranked Kansas State. The guy who set their schedule up didn't return Texas and Oklahoma's calls. Their real test is coming up at Arrowhead against Missouri. If they are lucky to get past them, they have to tackle the team they have been hiding behind a rock from. They are not a national championship caliber team right now. If you watch ESPN, Fox Sports, or any other news show the commentators are all saying the word "when" as in "when kansas loses" the title picture will become clear. As it stands now the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team has a better chance at winning the BCS title than the football team does.

They are gearing up against a very talented Missouri squad. A good game by Chase Daniels will catapult him towards the Heisman. They need to focus their attention at Iowa State who are seething at the chance to stun the nation this saturday.

If you look at with just records, you have to say wow Kansas must be awesome, but if you look at it in terms of schedule, scores, and stats then you have to say that Missouri is still the better team right now. My case below:

Kansas 19 Colorado 14

Missouri 55 Colorado 10

Kansas 19 Texas A&M 11

Missouri 40 Texas A&M 26

Kansas 76 Nebraska 39 (they allowed 39 pts?)

Missouri 41 Nebraska 6 (very impressive)

Their lone win against a then and I stress then #24 ranked team was a win by 6 points.

Kansas State just lost to Nebraska 72-31 and also lost to Iowa State 31-20????? Iowa State beat them by 11? Kansas better be scared!!!!!

Good grief. Do all the Big 12 schools read the Journal World so they can learn about REAL sports??? Do KU fans post this garbaj in other towns' newspapers?

Well, one thing I would point out there, Mr. "mizzu", is that KU beat A&M in College Station whereas MIssouri beat them at Columbia. Things are very different on the road.

And if you want to play that game, Missouri only put up 41 on Nebraska in Columbia whereas KU hung 76 points on them in Lawrence.

"Good grief. Do all the Big 12 schools read the Journal World so they can learn about REAL sports??? "

Not hardly. When wanting to know anything about Big XII sports, the LJW is definitely not a source you should turn to. Try or any other newspaper in the Big XII region. The LJW will give you a few lines about KU (unless it's KU basketball, then you get 365/24/7 full page coverage) and nothing else about the rest of the league. You would think that KU plays in a conference of one, and only plays one sport.

"The guy who set their schedule up didn't return Texas and Oklahoma's calls."

Huh? The Big XII is scheduled in a set rotation. There is no control over the conference schedule regarding opponent or game location.

I'm not particulary impressed with Misery's schedule why we're at it. Sure, you played Oklahoma, but who won? After KU dismisses your Tigers, we'll get our own shot at OU.
