Yeah, just keep ignoring the Jayhawks. That way they will never see them coming. I expect the Hawks to end up in 5th or 6th place and win 13 to 15 conference games.

It is a good comparison. The 2007 Baseball Jayhawks under-performed based on their team talent level. Their losses during the off-season were not too damaging. They have brought in a lot of highly regarded recruits. Basically, if those players who struggled last year return to their expected level of performance, and a few of the newcomers make an impact, this team is going to be way better than a lot of the outsiders expect.

Now I hope I dont have to eat these words in a few months.

We will have a good read on the team early. They play three very strong teams next week: Arkansas, Vanderbilt and Iowa. All these games are on the road. If they come back to Lawrence with a 7-2 record for the home opener we will have a lot of reason for hope.

I'm so looking forward to my trip to Austin to see them play! It'll be my first Jayhawk Baseball road trip!

Hi kujersey, I expect you will see the Hawks taking it on the beak in Austin. Texas has a very good team again this year. It will be tough for KU to buy wins down there. Look for Kyle Russell in the game. He is the UT Right Fielder. One of the best college players in the nation. I think he might be a special player in the majors in the near future. I compare him to Eric Davis.
