    Kansas Schedule...Did You Know???

    aTm is the only win that Kansas has over an above .500 opponent at this point in the season. That is of course until Texas beats the Aggies, then KU will have zero wins against an above .500 team. The questions about the Jayhawks have merit. They haven't beaten a good team yet.

    Re: Kansas Schedule...Did You Know???

    All 3 of our wins are against teams that were .500 or better at the time of the win. I dont think Kansas should even bother showing up!

    OSU and K-State also have .500 records.

    But that's an amazing stat - to have 10 wins and just one be above .500 , and only 6-5 at that. That screams cush schedule or amazing parity.

    Make that two wins over above-.500 teams. Central Michigan has a 6-4 record right now.

    Re: Kansas Schedule...Did You Know???

    And won the MAC last year and looking to win it this year. KU lost to Toledo last year and spanked them this year. We lost to 'em this year as we know too well.

    I know for certain none of us would be discrediting a 10-0 record if we were in their position.

    Re: Kansas Schedule...Did You Know???

    Their 10-0 record shouldn't be discredited but it is directly related to why neither of the human polls are putting them above 4th right now and the BCS has them at 3rd EVEN when they are the last remaining BCS undefeated.

    And if we were 10-0, I wouldn't be discrediting it. But I would be a little disappointed that Texas and Oklahoma weren't apart of that.

    We wouldn't, but plenty of other people would.

    Actually, I think we've only played one game (Toledo?) against a team with a below .500 record at the time we played them.

    In the Big 12 you get to play the best team from the other division in the title game even if you don't play them during the regular season. It's not like the Big 11 where there is an opportunity to "win" the conference and still avoid playing the other best team in that conference.

    Re: Kansas Schedule...Did You Know???

    KU hasn't played anyone so far, but we'll find out how good they are after the Missouri and (if they win that one) Oklahoma games. (And of course the ISU game. )

    Re: Kansas Schedule...Did You Know???

    KU will get respect if they win out. It just so happens that their schedule is potentially backloaded. They have beaten the Big 12 teams they have supposed to and they have no control over who they play in that respect, but they do control their non-conference schedule and it was weaker than ours. We both played two MAC teams and a Div I-AA team, ours happens to be ranked #1, but we played a bowl team from the Big 10 and they played Florida International. All of KU's non-conference schedule was at home as well. So, I think people can knock KU's schedule all they want. If ISU was in the same position, I'd be honest about who we played as well. Our non-conference schedule was a joke and next year's is just as bad.

    Very good point.

    And as others have said, their fate will be decided in the next 3 weeks.

    All of their "cream-puff" schedule comments will mostly go away if KU beats Missouri and Oklahoma.
