Secondly, Texas is a very good team. They were physical mismatches all over the field. The buffs have a long way to go before they are on an even talent level with Texas. The same could be said for Florida State. Thirdly, although the buffs have some very difficult games ahead of them, with the exception of Missouri, the rest of their opponents do not have an overwhelming athletic edge. Fourthly, the defense has, and continues to play quite well. Of course there are some weaknesses, but overall, as a unit they have performed quite well. I expect this to continue. Fifthly, as much as I hate to say it, I think it is quite clear that we have seen the best Cody has to offer. His limitations are becoming more apparent each game as we see the defensive coordinators scheming against the buffs offense. Rarely do you see the long pass challenging the middle of the field, Cody is not a threat to run out of the spread, and the defense now only has about 25 yards of field to defend when he is at QB. While I'm no fan of the spread, it can work if the quarterback can run. The base play where they running back crosses in front of the quarterback to take the handoff is very effective, IF, the quarterback pulls the ball and runs that little quarterback counter around the weak side of the play. Right now the buffs simply have no such threat, and the linebackers scrape and fill like nobody's business. Sixth, I see no reason why Ballenger should not be getting additional reps in practice and one or two series in game so that we can begin to see what he can do. Although the second-team Texas defense was his opposition, it is clear that Ballenger has a much stronger arm and is definitely more mobile. His running skills are much better suited to a spread than Cody's. I do not see any reason not to begin developing him as he has a much greater upside. Seventh, special teams were abysmal. I simply cannot even begin to fathom what Josh Smith was thinking on that early kickoff return. And our kicker's nickname is money; might be better changed to peso. KU is very beatable and go buffs. That is all.
