It's that time again. You know, the one where you all make a ridiculously pessimistic prediction about how bad the game is going to be this weekend, and then the writing group backs it up by predicting an even worse outcome. Well, Texas seems to want to throw a wrench in that plan, giving us a glimmer of hope that maybe a team in this conference is a horrible trainwreck that can get beaten by our completely shorthanded squad. Think it's possible? Tell us how, and then read about how the rest of us think it will go.
NineToesBlogging: The Kansas Jayhawks and the Texas Longhorns are both in rebuilding mode. However, Texas is further along in their rebuild and still fairs pretty well in recruiting which makes them more talented. I like the Horns in this one. Texas 34, Kansas 10
KU Grad 08: Texas isn't good, but Kansas isn't ready to go win a Big 12 road game. I think we will take advantage of some Texas miscues to keep things close, but don't have the talent to win this game. Texas 31, Kansas 16
mikeville: Both teams have their well-documented issues. Here's what I'm considering. The Jayhawks haven't won away from Lawrence in what, their last 36 tries? (I think that's right.) Kansas is thin on talent while Texas is loaded with 4 and 5-star players. Texas might not be a very good team right now, but I'm not sure the Jayhawks have the horses to stop anything the Longhorns might want to do. I like the way Barking Carnival put it - "What happens when the unwinnable force meets the immovable passing game?" My answer - about 300 yards and four touchdowns from whichever UT QB gets the start. Texas 35, Kansas 14
Fizzle406: I am starting to sympathize with The Rant. How many different ways can we say every week Kansas isn't good and doesn't have a chance to win the game? This week will be no exception. Texas might be bad but Kansas is really really bad. Texas 35, Kansas 10
Winmore: I'll think we'll have what constitutes as close loss these days for Kansas football. Texas 30, Kansas 6.
misterbrain: Texas is so bi-polar this season that I honestly have no clue how this one is going to turn out. My only hope is that they had to hit rock bottom a couple weeks in a row before they snapped out of it against Oklahoma last time. So I'm going to say they hit rock bottom again, but it still won't be enough to give KU the win. Texas 21, Kansas 20.
