As football season draws nearer, new stories are posted everyday. I think we all agree that Kansas will have a potent offense and the defense should at the very least remain the same as last season. Also, I think most will agree that Kansas should be undefeated heading into its match up with OU. KU's Big 12 season still hasn't changed though. We play the same teams. We lost the Big 12 north last season due mainly to losses against the south's heavy hitters. What are KU's realistic chances of claiming at least one victory over OU, Texas, or Texas Tech. I would say that Texas will be near impossible, since it is in Austin, and McCoy is on a mission. However, if we could knock of OU or Tech, our chances of winning the north and earning a better bowl bid would be greatly improved. If KU starts out hot, we could potentially beat OU and who knows what could happen if we get rolling. We played OU tougher than most last season. Tech is breaking in a new quarterback, but history shows that he will still throw the ball all over the field. Tech has lost a lot in their secondary, and KU could pull one out in a shootout. Assuming we beat who we are supposed to beat, and Nebraska at home, beating one of the three south schools will in my opinion secure the north title. What are the chances that KU beats one of these schools? Thoughts?
