Call it inferior competition or whatever you want, Georgia Tech's offense is still extremely impressive and it poses a major challenge for the Jayhawk. It's balanced, explosive and they are can bury you before you even know what happened.
At the same time the Kansas offense is equally improved this year. It's pretty impressive to look at these two programs and the year over year improvement on the offensive side of the ball and specifically in the passing game. Yes it's just two games and they could both fall apart and prove us wrong but at this point all signs point to s bit of shootout.
Unfortunately for a Kansas fan the picture is still a bit intimidating. Tech is better in almost every category. We've covered what they can do on the offensive end but even defensively they have been better. Now that is the one area where I'm willing to concede that the competition might have a lot to do with it, but we're also banking on a theory in that area. There really isn't much theorizing going on when we say that the Kansas defense will need to improve in order to avoid a buzzsaw on Saturday and they regressed from week one to week two rather than improving.
The good news is that they don't play games on paper. If you need proof of that just look at this matchup a year ago. Turner Gill has his work cut out for him in that he won't catch Tech sleeping this year, but if he can generate an equally inspired effort among the Jayhawk players...well it definitely isn't a crazy thought to say the Jayhawks would have a shot.
