Is it just me, or does this game already feel like a victory?

I mean, it's weird. I even felt a touch of nerves before Northern Colorado, but now, it's like I'm not even considering a possible upset. Which is always disconcerting. Vegas thinks we win, and win big. The numbers say we win and win big, although by not as much as Vegas says. But it seems as if everyone is talking about how badly we'll beat Duke, as if they aren't even allowed to win or something. It's crazy.

We're going to win. It isn't that I'm lacking confidence, or anything. It just seems odd that it's such a given. I don't know. Maybe I'm just way off in outerspace.

Whatever. I should have expanded and made an article out of it but hey, whatareyougonnado?

In any case, get ready to watch Kansas kick some big-time butt. The game is on VERSUS, which may or may not have been at fault for not being on DirecTV anymore. I don't know. In any case, I hope you have VERSUS. If not, I can covertly help you out, so nobody knows. Kind of like we're spies, or something.

And it better work tomorrow. Because if I can't see Duke get its' ass kicked, I just may cry.

I'll see you on the other side. I'm writing this the night before, because who knows when I'll be up. But I will promise you this: I'll be up by kickoff, and I'll be commenting throughout the game. Promise.

ROCK CHALK!

P.S. I suppose I should make a prediction, huh. Well, I'm feeling super-duper confident, so, well, let's say I'm going Kansas 49 Duke 14. We cover!
