    Kansas: “Freshmen lead the way for the Jayhawks.” And with a new coach. Could they be looking at 1-10 or even 0-11?

    Bijan can move the ball. We’ll go as far as our Quarterback(s) will take us.

    I wouldn't write off the Texas passing game just yet. After all, they were going against a defense that knew exactly what they were going to do.

    A badass running back is a QB’s best friend....We’ve got a badass running back.

    Is he? Or is it a badass OL?

    I'd really really love to have both of those things again. We are halfway there at least.

    I'd like to say both. We'll see come kickoff.

    With a good OC, the running and passing games will feed off each other. One will open the other up, and vice versa. I’m hopeful for both.

    True, a badass OL is an RB’s best friend in turn. But I would posit that an elite RB can make up for some deficiencies along the front.

    Well sure. It all goes hand in hand. When VY was a freshman one of the first things I noticed was how much better he made the O-line look, because he could extend plays with those amazing feet of his. Yeah, some LB or DL may have slipped a block, but who cares when it ends up as a scramble for a 20 yard gain? He was the OL's best friend.

    By 2005 those guys grew up, got really nasty, and returned the favor and became VY's best friends.

    Lordy, I miss those days.
