Kansas is just about as bad as it gets

Kansas State 59, Kansas 7. Good heavens. Chase Coffman goes 15-16 for 184 yards, and KSU rushes for 286 on 41 carries. That's 7 yards a pop (6.98, if you're being pedantic), homes. 

Meanwhile, KU's just a mess, and the fact that this team beat Georgia Tech is just mind-boggling. How do you beat GT then lose to Baylor by 48? How?!

Here's the challenge: name three BCS teams worse than Kansas right now. We'll give you Duke. We'll even give you Washington State, even though it might not be true. Name a third. Name one that wouldn't beat this Kansas team by at least a touchdown. We dare you.

Kansas is nowhere near as bad as it gets

Well, maybe KU is a mess. But there are more teams worse than KU besides Duke and Wazoo. For starters there is the aforementioned Ga Tech. Tech's only wins over a BCS school are Virginia and Wake Forest and North Carolina. Virginia's only win over a BCS school is - nobody! Wake Forest's only win over a BCS school is Duke.  North Carolina's only win over a BCS school is Rutgers. So there are five more. The whole ACC and the Big East seem to me mostly gorging on each other and non-BCS schools.

The thing is with KU is to cut them some slack. A new coach needing to alter completely the culture takes time. Following Mark Mangino and cleaning up his mess requires more than a new coat of lipstick. They are not going bowling this year but Turner Gill will get it back by next year or the tear following. His recruits will start to show then.
