After residing elsewhere for several weeks Rock Chalk Roundtable returns to Rock Chalk Talk. This week our contributors are Denverjhawk from Rock Chalk Talk, DJ from Hawk Digest, and HipHopopotomus from Kansas Football It's Business Time.
Here are this weeks questions...Jump to the post for the Answers...
1. First off and then we'll move on, what disappointed you the most
about last week's game?
2. How funny was it to watch head Powercat, Tim Fitzgerald, bumble the
Gary Patterson story (if there ever was one)?
3. At 6-4, with two very tough games remaining, what are you looking
for out of this team?
4. Though clearly still the favorite, Texas has not looked dominant
since the Methzou shellacking. Is there a chance they peaked too early?
5. In order for Kansas to win this game, they must...
6. Big XII picks: MU@ISU, NU@KSU, A&M@Baylor, OSU@CU
Again...answers after the jump...
1.) Special teams...absolutely abysmal and embarassing. We give up field position and momentum without even trying with this unit and something has to be done. I can live with the offense, the defense, while leaving some to be desired did turn it over 3 times but the special teams continues to play horribly and it's hurting everyone.
2.) Honestly feel a little bad for the guy but I guess you have to check your sources a little better, I kind of thought it would actually go through but it's been pretty quiet on the western front lately so who knows?
3.) I want two competitive games...I say that because to be competitive against Texas and Missouri they will have to be clicking in all phases and that too me is critical. It's been a rollercoaster season and it's time to circle the wagons and keep our eye on the task of moving this program forward. That may mean a win against one of the final two and it may not but there cannot be any quit in this team.
4.) It's possible but by the same token I think since the Mizzou game it has become clear that the Big 12 South is a different animal than the North. There's a chance they may have actually lost at the right time thought...if Texas Tech loses to OU and then OU loses to OSU ,Texas should be poised for another run at Mizzou and then likely the NC Game.
5.) Play flawlessly in every aspect, The offense has to execute in both the running and passsing, the defense will not stop Texas but they need to force a couple turnovers and keep the opponent from putting 40+ on the board, and lastly and most importantly the special teams has to give us and keep field position which it hasn't done once this year so I'm not holding my breath. However a cold less than ideal day in Lawrence might even the playing field a little on this one.
6.) MU over ISU
NU over KSU
A&M over Baylor
OSU over CU
MU over ISU / NU over KSU / Baylor over A&M / OSU over CU
