I really hope I'm wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if they cover.

I also think the spread opened up at -18 or something like that, so it looks like the betters think they'll cover too.


Investors are agreeing with you, not me. Line has moved to 21.5 at most books, I found one offering 22.5.

Doesn't help that Isi Holani is out for the year. I've heard Dorance potentially out with his arm issue also.

That's weird, because on the depth chart released yesterday Holani is still listed as Wise's backup and Armstrong is sill listed as a starter.

I guess this all must have happened during practice yesterday or after some medical test results came back today or something like that?

I guess it happened yesterday or today.

I also don't like reading tweets from the Slant as I keep getting confused when they talk about KU visiting some 5 star guard as I keep thinking we're in on some 5 star OG somewhere and getting intrigued and excited then quickly realizing they're talking about a bball guard! LOL

Thought I had seen Holani play against Ohio, but guess not.

They apparently got the final medical word on him on Monday.

Spread ended up at WVU -24. They didn't cover that, but they did cover the original spread thanks to a big fourth quarter.

I loved the ESPN play-by-play guy being fully aware of the final number and talking up WVU's last offensive play like it was three seconds left in the Super Bowl.

Holani was a fringe player at best. KU needs to move forward with ...
