It’s tough to overstate the resiliency of the Kansas Jayhawks as Bill Self’s team was down by 13 points several times against Ohio State in their Final Four match up but rallied in the second half to get the win. Kansas missed plenty of easy shots and failed to get to the line against Ohio State in the first half but in the second half they made the most of their chances to get the game close and to eventually get the win in the end.

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Iowa St. Cyclones

The struggling Kansas Jayhawks meet the Iowa State Cyclones on the road in a Big 12 match up Saturday. The Jayhawks season of frustration continued with a 43-0 loss to Texas in week nine while the Cyclones hammered Texas Tech 41-7 on the road.  The Cyclones are -14 point favorites over the Jayhawks. The losses keep mounting for Kansas as it’s been obvious for quite some time that this team has huge holes on both sides of the ball. That was readily apparent against Texas with both areas being exposed once again in the team’s poorest performance of the season. Kansas totaled an abysmal 46 total yards of offense, going 1 of 10 on third down and somehow managed three first downs. The ground attack if it could be called that totaled a negative two yards on 20 carries while quarterback Jordan Webb completed 7 of 16 throws for a Read More

Oklahoma Sooners vs. Kansas Jayhawks

Two teams coming off of the one sided games meet in Lawrence as the Kansas Jayhawks host the Oklahoma Sooners.  The Sooners are -34.5 favorites over the Jayhawks with an over/under point total set at 67. They didn’t expect instant results when Turner Gill took over as head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks last season but even for the most optimistic being on the wrong end of a 70-28 football game still has to hurt. UK was dismantled and run circles round in Stillwater last Saturday as they trailed 56-7 at halftime and it was garbage time after that. On the surface the numbers for the Kansas offense aren’t bad as QB Jordan Webb has completed 68.4 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. James Sims averages 4.2 yards per carry with 380 yards and five touchdowns. D.J. Beshears and Tim Biere each have 19 catches and Read More

Kansas Jayhawks

Overview: Turner Gil had a miraculous final season at Buffalo in 2009 but there were no miracles in his first year at Kansas as the Jayhawks simply couldn’t score or stop opponents from scoring. This season there is little talk about heading to a postseason appearance as Kansas really needs to concentrate on getting back to respectability. We’ll see if Gil can do just that which might be a miracle in itself after a season where little went right. Offense: The quarterback situation was a mess in 2010 with three different players starting and only throwing for a little over 1,900 yards on 58% completion. We could see a similar situation this year with Jordan Webb, Quinn Mecham and Brock Berglund all pushing for the starting position. The Jayhawks have some talent in the backfield even though this unit ran for only 1,615 yards and averaged a paltry 3.4 yards Read More

Kansas Jayhawks vs. Virginia Commonwealth Rams

The Kansas Jayhawks are 11-point favorites over the Virginia Commonwealth Rams today in San Antonio.  The over/under total for todays game is set at 147 points.  Kansas looks to advance to their second Final Four in four years.  The winner of the game will face Butler next week at the Final Four. The Kansas Jayhawks are 35-2 overall and 19-16 against the spread this season.  The Jayhawks won the national championship three years ago, with none of the current players a key contributor. That team didnt face a higher seed than a No. 8 before the Final Four and theres a similar fate this year. Kansas has wins over No. 16 Boston University, No. 9 Illinois and No. 12 Richmond on Friday 77-56 in the Sweet 16. Richmond was a mismatch from the start thanks to a 27-4 run that led to a 41-22 halftime advantage. The Spiders are one Read More
