Every week - well except for following the West Virginia game when I was lazy and didn’t do this - every week I come on here and say something like “I just don’t know what to say anymore.”

And I really don’t. The stats say it all.

David Beaty is now 3-26 overall, 1-25 vs FBS schools.

Zenger hires are 10-55 at Kansas.

Kansas has yet to hold an FBS opponent under 42 points this year.

KU’s yards per play allowed by game this year: 3.3, 8.2, 7.0, 7.7, 7.6. And remember, two of those opponents are middle-tier MAC schools.

Let’s just get this over with.

The Good

Um. Texas Tech didn’t get to 80. Yeah, we’ll go with that.

The Bad

Good grief, take your pick: offensive line, quarterback play, the defense as a whole, there’s any number of issues that continue to be ongoing problems.

The Ugly.

This coaching staff is ridiculous. From play-calling to personnel to clock managament (if there even is such a thing in a 46-point game), it’s just all been atrocious.

The Stats

Peyton Bender started, completing 12-24 passes for 146 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. He could have easily had three or four INTs, however.

Carter Stanley completed 11-19 passes for 110 yards with an INT. He also added 19 yards on 6 carries.

I’m still #TeamStanley.

Khalil Herbert picked up 67 yards on just 10 carries prior to leaving the game in the third quarter with an apparent hamstring injury.

Taylor Martin added 33 yards on 14 carries, mostly in garbage time in the second half.

Steven Sims had a quiet 102 yards on 5 receptions.

Ben Johnson tacked on 55 yards on 5 receptions.

Jeremiah Booker hauled in 3 passes for 39 yards, including a very nice TD catch.

Chase Harrell brought down four passes for 27 yards.

Dorance Armstrong finally made it to a game, picking up 9 tackles, his first sack of the season, and forcing a fumble.

Daniel Wise added 5 tackles and a sack.

Josh Ehambe had 7 tackles with a sack.

Joe Dineen added 9 tackles.

Mike Lee also had 9 tackles to go with his second INT of the year.

Gabriel Rui was 2/2 on field goals of 21 and 41 yards.
