    KU Boards: Guess the KU/Georgia Tech Score

    Not a lot of confidence there...

    KUsports.com Message Boards: Guess the score: *Kansas vs. GT*

    Here's to hoping we beat the snot out of them later this season.


    Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great
    True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!

    And thank you Stumpy for this:

    Is there a mercy rule? No? I bet KU fans wish there was. It could get very ugly for them.

    What do you mean it "COULD"? It "will" get ugly for them. If you can't beat NDSU, and I don't care who your coach is or if you even have a head coach, you don't belong in Big 12.

    It would suck if KU fans actually cared about football... luckily (for them) they don't care.

    Wow, gotta love the guy who picked it 72-3. It's possible, but have a little faith in your team...

    Kinda like if we can't beat UNI we don't belong in the BigXII?

    Look I'm a huge ISU fan, and not a KU apologist at all, but this statement is a little harsh. They have a new coach and new system, and we all knew they were going to be bad. Chalk this up as a good thing for us, and hopefully a potential win later this season.

    But when I read this stuff I can't escape the feeling that either we are forgetting our own illustrious past, or that we (and KU) might soon not be playing in the BigTexas Conf.

    Re: KU Boards: Guess the KU/Georgia Tech Score

    We would probably be saying the same thing. KU losing to NDSU is probably the worst loss by a Big 12 team in years. And yes, the year we lost to UNI we probably didn't belong in the Big 12. We went 0-8 after all.

    I disagree. They've brought their basketball mentality into the football stadium. Their fans, with the least amount to talk trash about in terms of football, are a bunch of ******.

    They are hands down the WORST fans in the BIGXII.

    Re: KU Boards: Guess the KU/Georgia Tech Score

    Ku fans have already quit caring about football. They are the most fickle fans in the Big 12 and are the first to turn on somebody. Remember how they all decided Lew Perkins is the second coming, and now that he is "retiring" he is awful and should be run out of town? They only have pride in winning, not in there programs.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: KU Boards: Guess the KU/Georgia Tech Score

    I don't think KU has turned on Lew just because he is retiring. With the scandals, Lew has given KU fans plenty of ammo to not be very happy with him. The one thing Lew did was put a point system in for tickets. It's something that was past due at KU and something numerous AD's could have come in and done. Lew has wasted way too much money at KU and he only hired two coaches during his tenure. WBB coach, who is the highest paid coach per wins in the country and Gill, who is being paid 2 mill. per year without ever proving himself and just happened to lose to North Dakota State in his opener.

    Re: KU Boards: Guess the KU/Georgia Tech Score

    I have one concern about KU. While NDSU isn't a good team at all, KUs defense played fine. It was just the offense that stunk.

    IF they can make the offense respectable, they may still win a couple of games. Although admittedly that is a big IF.

    Actually, we went 2-6 with wins over a bowl team in CU and KSU and nearly beat OU. We also beat Iowa that year.

    This is actually why I'm not totally writing KU off.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Did their offense look like it was completely terrrible or were they just getting hurt by drops or turnovers or something? GT -13.5 is looking awfully good to me, that spread seems real low for a team that just lost to NDSU.
