lol, we don't need to be aware of southern miss. the team needs to be aware as they already are. Going into any game, the team needs to be aware and not overlook anyone or else they could lose. As for all the negative comments about the team, we have only played 3 games this season. We don't look great yet. We look pretty average to good at this point. Guess what? We can only get better and that is scary for all future opponents. With that said, Kansas wins this one easy as they finally play a good offensive game. 56 to 13 final score. Hopefully I'm giving southern miss. too much credit there.

Most difficult teams faced so far, Duke for KU, and Central Florida for Southern Miss. The only SOS ratings I could find this early on are computer done and rank both KU and Southern Miss. similarly.

Pfft, enjoy it. KU isn't OK or Texas. Never will be.

Win or lose, we still booze.



Sounds like a post from five years ago. The Texas team I've seen at Wyoming and vs. Texas Tech looked beatable, as does the OU team that KU played well against last year in Norman.

I like to see confidence in a team, BUT we will not be held to 13 points. This is the same Fedora team that OSU had a few years ago. The offense, while dismal the first half of Virginia, can be strong. We can win, but we have to play very well. Don't take us lightly...we're 3-0 for a reason. Don't think your defense is strong enough to hold us to 13...

Meh, I don't see what makes Southern Miss that much better than UTEP. We'll dispatch them handily.




We agree, UVA is frickin horrible...SMiss will NOT be a challenge...I anticipate more vanilla...

For a team that has won 8-straight games (including a bowl win tossed in there) our fans seem to be overlooking Southern Miss.

I hope our team doesn't have this attitude.

Fine, I get it, you're nervous. I'll be surprised if Saturday is anything other than a comfortable win. We haven't rolled out any of our playbook yet. If we need to, we'll get into the complicated stuff.

I am sure Coach MM is of like mind with you, one game at a time and prepare like crazy.

I just saw film of a lot of the UVA game...ugly stuff.

Considering this has been considered the toughest Non-con game all offseason, I doubt the team will overlook it. Especially considering the big comeback they had this week.

No doubt, you guys have a good team and virtually everyone, including most here on this message board, thinks you'll be our toughest non-con opponent, but I think we have the best defense you all have faced so far this year and it's in Lawrence which doesn't help. I don't know how many points you'll score, but I'd be surprised if it's higher than 21 or so, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's lower than 17.

Can you tell I don't like making absolute predictions?

The line opened around 14 and if I had to make a wager I'd take USM and the points. They are a very tough team.
Much tougher than KSU, ISU or CU.

Golden Eagle fan here. Im sure your guys wont be overlooking this one. They know, along with Coach ManG, that we are a pretty talented team. We struggled last week because of turnovers and down right nasty play but were able to win the game. It should be a good game if you look at the talent. We are not where you guys are yet but we are headed in that direction. Very young. Not losing anybody for next year, with the exception of Fletch, but there are better backs behind him right now so we should have 16 returning starters for next year. Although I dont want to, im giving the edge to you guys. 30-23. I dont think this will be as high scoring as people think. Good luck to you guys. hope you have a great season!

We are a tale of two teams right now. So far the team that plays in the first half is very average and vanilla. But the team that shows up in the second half is a top 25 team and what us USM fans have expected all year. It's going to take us playing our best for 60 minutes to beat Kansas. You guys are very solid this year on both sides of the ball. But I think our teams are pretty similar in a lot of ways and the talent is fairly even....you guys may have a little more speed than us.

Maybe this is a team that plays up to its level of competition. This does happen. I think some of Bill Self's teams do that. I think we will be really focused and ready to go after all of the mistakes against Duke. We should be really sharp.
