Fun Fact: KU did not lose by 24 points.
” alt=”” />
Five forced turnovers, held TCU to 2-for-11 on third down, 173 total passing yards (75 on one play). The defense came to play. Too bad the offense couldn’t help them out.
2. James Sims
Sims had 121 total yards of offense. The fumble sucked, but the 121 yards against a really good defense was nice.
3. Beat The Spread
KU was a 24.5 point underdog to TCU and was in it until the end. That essentially means Vegas would win something like 27-3. Not losing 27-3 is nice.
1. Charlie Weis
Play-calling has been awful for the Jayhawks this season. At what point does he hand those duties over to someone else?
2. Mental Game
Kansas isn’t a good team, this much is clear. But they battled more this week than they did against Texas Tech. A change in mentality is needed as much as an upgrade in talent.
Still, the turnovers in key situations, penalties, and miss-plays continue to haunt the Jayhawks. Most of that is not being mentally prepared.
3. Third Down Offense
Two-for-16. Yuck. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
