Any success this season depends on the development and improvement of our OL and Cornerbacks/Safeties. All have new coaches. Hopefully Ricker, Bowen, and Sendish can get these guys playing. If not, look for 0-1 wins. If all these units are improved, we could get 3-5 wins, most of those being in our non-con.

Usually the improvements for OL and defensive secondary would be minor improvements year over year for P5 D1 schools to go from 0 wins to 5 wins for 2018. In Kansas' situation, the huge improvements needed to move to 5 wins is comparable to stopping the volcanic lava flows in Hawaii today. Miniscule chance of it happening. Unfortunately.

The best thing to do in this situation is to remove and replace more staff that can't/won't develop the full roster. Not naming names anymore, it's repetitive and they know who they are anyway.

If you (madcap) think 5 is doable, can you give out the teams you consider beatable by KU?

I don't think the Big 12 will be as strong this year. I'm going to say 3-5. Who knows, some wins might be shockers!

If we have to cancel the Nicholls St game due to injuries and mental ineptitude, I say 0 wins. If NCAA forces us to play that game I say 0 wins

No idea on wins, but I do predict we are athletic director and coach shopping after game five.

RCJHKU!

Is this part of your five wins?

Beaty is entering his 4th year at the helm and still hasn't assembled even a makeshift offensive line....after wining just 3 games in three seasons he is only now discussing :toughness"????Yet there are some who still think this moron can win more than 3 games in a single season????To WIN, one must first become competitive....Beaty hasn't even come close to hopping that hurdle yet!
