    I beleive people have been blasting OSU's schedule all year as well, as they should. You can't convince me that Kansas has had a tough road no matter how hard you try.

    Re: Kansas vs. Ohio State

    Actually 5 of OSU's opponents were at one point or another ranked in the top 25

    I more worry about records than I do rankings. If this year has proved anything it is that pre-season rankings aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

    I am not saying Kansas had a tough road, all I am saying is Ohio State also had a easy road.

    Heck, we get the same kind of schedule the next two years. I wish the Big 12 would wake up since Iowa State and Kansas are the only ones in the North Division that have to play both Oklahoma and Texas in the same year. Why do they not break this up to balance out the schedule ?

    Re: Kansas vs. Ohio State

    I'm as big a Big 12 north fan as the next guy, but I'm afraid this KU team is not one of the top two teams in the country. Their roll reminds me of the over-rated Hawkeyes from a few years back who got their ***** handed to them when they got to their big time bowl.
    I don't think UK (it's University of..., right) would match up against LSU, Florida, or healthy Oregon or OU teams.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    It's KU. With Kansas #2 now, I'm betting on Missouri to win this weekend.

    Re: Kansas vs. Ohio State

    KU would run circles around the Buckeyes...they have more team speed and an innovative offensive gameplan.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I don't know. Kansas has been pretty legit this year. They only have one offense, and they've been running it all year and tearing opponents up. That Iowa team had a pretty balanced offense, but it wasn't very good. They played a lot of teams with really bad "halfs" to their defense. I think every single team they played had a bottom 100 either pass D or run D with the exception of Purdue (who almost beat them). Iowa would simply exploit the bad parts of the D, and have no problem.

    While I don't think Kansas has played a "tough" schedule, they've certainly played a "tough enough" schedule to be #2 in the nation with 11 wins under their belt. You've also gotta remember they have two very important games left, and when it's time to pick teams for the BCS, I think their schedule will easily pass muster if they win out. If not, this isn't even really a discussion in the first place.

    Re: Kansas vs. Ohio State

    I would like to see KU get passed by tOSU, or some other one loss team. I think would finally expose the BCS for the joke that it is. God I hate the BCS.

    That simply won't happen. It might happen if Kansas loses, though.

    I don't think it's a joke. This is pretty damn exciting football, really. How is this basically not a playoff for Kansas? And for LSU? And for West Virginia? And for Ohio State?
    I mean who plays in the NC game is being decided on the field as we speak. It's being decided in conference play, and against rivals. Kansas-Missouri might well decide it. I don't know how that's any worse than it being decided between two teams that have absolutely no history between them (i.e. West Virginia/Kansas/Ohio State/LSU).

    I mean wouldn't you rather have ISU/Iowa decide who goes to the national championship game than ISU/West Virginia? I think the BCS just emphasizes rivalry games that much more, and that's one of the best things about college football.

    So OSU has a chance at the national championship but, because Iowa wasn't on the schedule, no shot at a Super Bowl...
