Line has already gone up to 33 at a couple of books.

Nightmare scenario for Girod: Kansas wins this game then gets slaughtered in the last two. Hard to see Beaty or Zenger getting axed under those circumstances, isn't it?

No need to worry about KU winning this game, all three of the last games are gonna be slaughters. Texas will get it's revenge for last year. OU and OSU will score 50+ on us.

Texas has a quarterback quandry, their main starter has a lingering injury and their #2 is immobile. That makes this mildly interesting.

Having said that, let's be honest, KU's win last year was entirely attributable to Charlie Strong inexplicably running hurry-up offense toward the end of the game when the Longhorns just had to kill clock. Texas played to lose. That won't happen this year.

50+ in the first half.

I'll be attending the game. UT is looking to pound someone. I don't think it will be very nice.

I don't expect a win, but I don't think this game will be as ugly as the line is suggesting either.

Texas may shut us down on O. Their run D is really good and their pass D is average, but we've really been struggling to pass consistently mostly because of our OL problems. If we get the passing game on track some, then we could get a few points. If not, it's gonna be a long ugly day on O.

Texas passes a lot better than they run the ball, but that was with a healthy starting QB and as casey mentioned their starting QB is dinged up and not as effective right now. Their backup has a lot of good tools but also makes a lot of bad decisions and is the same QB we beat last year. I think we can limit their running ability and make them 1 dimensional on O. That can be a blessing and curse as our secondary has a lot of problems. We need 1 or 2 guys to step up and take advantage of some of the poor throws I know Texas will make. They've made quite a few in every game of theirs I've watched this year and I've watched parts or all of 6 of em.

If they start their backup, this game will be close for a half or 3 quarters as they struggle to score under him. If we don't turn the ball over and someone in our secondary can make a big play or 2 this game should be within 2 scores. If nobody steps up, it'll probably be a 3 or 4 score game. If we turn the ball over and get none ourselves it may get almost as ugly as the line suggests IMHO.

My best guess is we lose by about 2 or 3 scores(10-21 points IMHO) if they start their backup. If they start their normal starter and he's relatively healthy then we probably lose by about 4 scores(24-30 IMHO). My surprise best scenario guess is we win it if our OL suddenly stops making a bunch of mistakes and they struggle just as bad on O as they did against TCU last week. My surprise worst scenario guess is we lose by 6 or 7 scores because our O gets shut out and turns the ball over some, and our D can't stop the pass then wears down giving up some garbage points late in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

That's the only way I think the line is going to pay off, if we have our worst case scenario. I'm not sure how team morale is right now, but I think it'll have to be noticeably down for this to happen.

Good analysis Kman. This isn't an unwinnable game.

If KU plays like they care, this could end with a surprise.

you need to put the crack pipe down and step away and go get some professional help if you think that Beaty and Bowen can even come close to being competitive that rest of the season

Good analysis jhawkblue: Seems as if the crack, opioid and meth problem is substantialy worse than statistics bear out. This is an unwinnable game for the current staff and the state of the program. There won't be any "moral victories". This is a 50 point blowout win for the Horns. I predict prolly 28-31 to nothing at half and 56-6 final

And plenty of padding for the sharps to continue to make dime and hedge bets with as +34 is a small number at this point. If it gets to +48-49 I may consider the other side, but until then bet with the college team not the HS team and HS coach

He is not a HS coach and has turned some slow lumbering men into a unit. Not good but better and that comes from coaching. Who the heck would you hire? Id like to know your list.
