I gotta laugh a little bit at anyone guessing as to the availability of our guys, given Mangino's remarkable secrecy.

I'm not putting much stock in that report either.

i thought the same thing fish: us scoring less than 35 is less likely than us giving up that many.

i also don't believe the hype about the "distraction" of the little spats. this isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened.

I think back to 2007 and the Orange Bowl run. Everyone was picking us to lose every week. They had no confidence then, they have no confidence now. That's fine, we know what we have.

Nothing new. USM talks about wanting to win this game for national respect, but the problem is we still have to play for national respect and were in the top 25. So I don't see that being a factor. Fact of the matter is if we don't beat ourselves, we win this game. I'm still trying to figure out how someone on here got that they have a stronger schedule. Uh, yah, right.

Meanwhile, everybody's favorite prognosticator Phil Steele has us winning 34-24

Apparently the UTEP game was enough to change his mind about KU. He had USM #27 in his preseason top 40, KU was not in his top 40 at all.

is the bigxii underrated? overrated? or neither? are our "bad" as bad as our "best" are good?

we seem way better than the worse, and not nearly as good as the best, but we're a good team. i think we're a team that could beat or at least compete with the best of other conferences (except maybe the sec). maybe i've got the blinders on, but we're not as good as we have been, but we're still pretty good. we're kind of boring. we put up huge numbers but we don't have the swagger we used to, and i can't put my finger on it. that's one of the things that's got me worried. the o-bowl team was under-rated because no one wanted to believe. i KNEW we were good, our guys knew we were. we just don't seem like that. are we that young?
