    I'll go with kJsu. Too hard to judge the fighting mangino's based on their mr. bill-esque schedule.

    Great win by the kitties in Austin...congrats.

    K-state has the benefit of playing good teams with speed. They know how to play at top speed and that should carry over to the game against the gayhawks. The gayhawks haven't played anybody yet, and haven't had their own speed tested.

    purple pussies by 7-10 points.

    Something tells me KU will win this one.

    I'm not sure that the powderpuff schedule should be held against KU's players. Coming off a bye-week, KU will be prepaired to play at KSU's level, and a little bit more.

    KSU suffers an emotional letdown at home.
    Both teams are executing on offense. I suspect Rock Chalk puts more points on the board. Put me down for the underdog in the Sunflower Shootout.

    I'm thinking KSU could be our toughest game in the B12 north this year. They have something neither misery or the hucksters have.....a defense. Even as a rival they should walk over the chickenhawks.

    Playing in the Little Apple is never easy for Big12 teams. KU isn't battle tested yet as a team and KSU went on the road to beat UT. Sure, there could be the let down, but I don't think that it will cost the game. I do believe it will be closer than KSU fans would like.

    Anyone else think that KSU fans are creepy nice? The times I've been there I had a great time, but I get a Village of the Damned feeling from them

    I know that feeling. When CU shut out KSU in Manhattan a few years back, the departing KSU croud resembled an army of zombies. KSU losing at home makes a line at the DMV seem festive. Never before or after have I felt so alone among so many people.

    I still think Prince is bat**** crazy and that the team is going to turn on him at some point, but he seems to have things going in his direction right now. I don't see KU winning this one.

    Game might be interesting but KU will need to hang 30 to win and KSU can play a little defense. Those purple bastards will hit ya.

    I used to go to these games in the late 80s while living in Kansas. There was like 7 or 8 people there.:huh:

    KSU's experience against top notch competition is going to show through big-time! K-State's defense has been tearing it up, against good competition, and KU has eaten more cupcakes than OK. Isn't KU still 6 wins away from bowl eligibility? KSU's offense is the big question, if they play well it won't be in doubt. If they don't play well, it'll be closer, but still a definite KSU win. Much like our Buffs, KSU is coming back big after a few down years, the North is rising.

    KSU 24, or 42
    KU 13

    I give the nod to the Purple Pussies. KU hasn't played anybody and KSU has. KSU will be more ready for real competition than the Fightin' Manginos.

    Well if your poll is correct the kitties are definitely going to win. I agree. You guys have been hardened by the fire of your schedule and KU is still soft. I think they will be shocked by you guys and the game will be over by 5 minutes into the 3rd.

    The game's in Manhattan, where the purple pussies are rarely surprised. If this were in Lawrence, I might call for a letdown game. It'll be closer than many think, though, as the squawkers get up for this one.

    End result, though, will be cries of "wait'll basketball season!" from the blue-clad ******s.

    I voted for the j-hawks. I think that you guys will have a letdown after your "rivalry game" that you just played. :wink2:



    I actually just wanted to be different, but I hope you guys smash those bastards.

    i think KSU wins easy, even though I hope they lose because i like our chances of beating kansas better than our chances of beating KSU.

    Sometimes being "bat****" crazy is a good thing for a football team. Who are you more scared of Prince or Bill Snyder. My bets on the guy with the wild look in his eyes and a pension for making his coaches run stadium stairs. I get that, I really do.

    Maybe, but it's a fine line you have to walk and if you go too far, you can lose the team completely. You can lose your coaches, too, whether they actually quit on you, or keep working for you but also quit on you.

    I'm sure its already been said, but KU has played the equivalent of South Central Vermont Private School for Witchcraft and Wizardry so far. They're soft and you should expose them like Britney Spears' Vag.

    CFN picks Kansas by 10 :wow:

    Kansas (4-0) at Kansas State (3-1) 12:00 PM
    Why to Watch: Is this the biggest football game in the history of the two schools? If not, it could turn out to be, as Kansas State is flying high after beating Texas 41-21, while Kansas started off its season playing as well as anyone in America, coming into the game ranked first in the nation in scoring defense, fourth in scoring offense, third in total offense and third in total defense. We know about the Wildcats, with a tough defense and tremendous special teams, and we know they're good enough hang with the big boys. We still don't know anything about KU, with its biggest win coming over Central Michigan, but a win over the Wildcats might mean a monster jump in the rankings. Basically, everyone's waiting to see what the team can do against someone with a pulse. The Big 12 North is suddenly looking nasty, with five real contenders and Iowa State, so a loss will put a serious crimp in any title hopes, while a win will be bigger than it'll probably get credit for on a national scale.
    Why Kansas Might Win: Lost in the win over Texas, and in the near-miss against Auburn, was how the Kansas State offense simply didn't work. Oh sure, it looked great against San Jose State, and put up huge numbers against Missouri State, but the offense went nowhere against Texas and there wasn't any running game to speak of against Auburn. It took a trick pass play to score on the Tigers, and it took a whopping 58 pass attempts to get to 289 yards. The KU secondary is still untested, but the run defense has been a rock. If the Jayhawks can avoid the big turnover, can limit the big special teams play, and can get up early, they should be able to pull off the road win.
    Why Kansas State Might Win: The Wildcats are finding ways to get it done. Whether it's a punt return here, a key sack there, or a timely defensive stop, they're finding ways to make things happen. The offense might not be humming, but the line has been great in pass protection, while the new 3-4 defense has been generating consistent pressure. For the first time all year long, the timing of the KU offense will be disrupted, and for the first time all year long, KU will have to face a little bit of adversity. Kansas State knows what it can do in tough games with the pressure on. Kansas doesn't.
    Who to Watch: In a game like this, things can change in an instant with a big kick return, and these two teams have the best return games in America. Kansas leads the nation in kickoff returns, averaging 32.78 yards per try, led by Marcus Herford, who averages 33 yards per try. Kansas State got a kickoff return for a touchdown against Texas from James Johnson, while Leon Patton is the main man, averaging 26 yards per return. The real stars of the KSU show are the punt returners, leading the nation with a gaudy 27.2-yard average thanks to touchdowns from Deon Murphy and Jordy Nelson. Nelson has been on fire the last two weeks, catching 27 passes for 326 yards and three touchdowns, while averaging 57 yards per punt return.
    What Will Happen: Kansas won't give up the big turnovers needed for the KSU offense to feed off of. This will be a surprising defensive battle for about a half, and then KU's offensive balance will take over in the second half. The Wildcats will start to press, will turn it over a few times, and KU will pull away late.
    CFN Prediction: Kansas 27 ... Kansas State 17 ... Line: Kansas State -3
    Must See Rating: (5 Paris on Letterman - 1 Singing Bee) ... 4
