What if Robert Griffin III had gone to Kansas?

Some of you may have seen the recent SBNation "what if?" articles - what if Tim Tebow went to Alabama, or the newer one, what if Robert Griffin III had gone to Texas. That got me started thinking about a very plausible situation - what if he had gone to Kansas instead? We were on his considerations but he dropped because he didn't want to play behind Todd Reesing. So what if?

I think for starters, the 7-game losing streak in 2009 doesn't happen. We'd still probably lose 3 or 4 of those games, but there's a pretty big difference between 5-7 and 8-4 or 9-3. Hell, give us two of those games, and we're sitting at 7-5 with a good shot for a low-tier bowl bid. Mangino, then, would probably have not been fired, and we wouldn't have the disastrous 3-9 Turner Gill first season. If RGIII continues along his path of greatness, we could be pretty respectable in 2010. This could even affect conference realignment - how much better does a Kansas with a consistently strong football program and a consensus top-3 basketball program look over a Kansas with the same basketball program but one of the worst football programs in the country?

Post your thoughts in the comments, I'd be interested to see.
