Welcome to the Rock Chalk Talk and your open thread for the Kansas Jayhawks and the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater Oklahoma.

Right now the Jayhawks are in a bit of a predicament. Turner Gill and Kansas have brought the offense along, but the defense is still lagging pretty far behind. That is good from the perspective that things feel a bit more competitive this year, but it's bad for this game because Oklahoma State can explode offensively and the Jayhawks are likely powerless to stop it. I'm pretty sure no one circled this one on the calendar as a winnable one at the beginning of the year so I head into this one hoping that we can use the game as a major learning experience. My biggest fear is that the staff takes an approach that is a bit too conservative and that we don't play with the "nothing to lose" attitude that we should.
