Welcome to the Rock Chalk Talk and your open thread for week two of the 2011 Kansas Jayhawk football season.

The Jayhawks are coming off of a convincing win over McNeese State in week one. In that game Kansas showed a heavy focus and commitment to the running game compiling over 300 yards on the ground between four running backs. This week the competition picks up a level and the Kansas defense will need to play better in order for the Jayhawks to come away with a win over a Northern Illinois team that can put up some big and balanced number offensively. Kansas is the underdog in this one. It's a Huge opportunity for coach Gill and Kansas to build some confidence and start 2-0 before heading to Atlanta for a game against BCS opponent Georgia Tech
