Tech Tramples Team, Trashing Homecoming

NCAA Football: Texas Tech at Kansas Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

This was arguably the easiest conference game on the schedule, and Kansas still failed to keep it even remotely competitive, dropping to 1-5 on the year, and 0-3 in Big 12 play.

It wasn't an avalanche out of the gate, for what that's worth. Tech did score a touchdown on their opening drive, but it was the 2nd quarter before they got onto the board again. Still, by halftime, the writing was on the wall that this wasn't going to end well. Tech put up 17 second quarter points to go into the break up 24-0, and the Jayhawks' offense had been completely ineffective against a Tech defense that had allowed 52 or more points in two of their last three games.

The third quarter was generally more of the same, with the Red Raiders entering the fourth up 38-0. The Jayhawks would get some points in garbage time, but ultimately fell 41-14, failing to stay remotely competitive or even beat the spread.

Aside from Kenny Logan (6 tackles, 1 interception), there aren't even individual performances to highlight after this one. It was just a disappointing performance against arguably the next worst team in the Big 12, and it came not just at home, but on homecoming. As we are reminded in a weekly basis, this coaching staff has their work cut out for them in developing this roster into one that fits in amongst their fellow Big 12 teams.

Things likely won't look any better next week when Kansas hosts Oklahoma, who at the time of publishing is undefeated and ranked 4th.
