Editor’s note: In preparation of the upcoming football season, K-Stated will look ahead to all 12 games on the Wildcats’ 2010 schedule. Next up, Nebraska.
Gone is Todd Reesing. Gone is Mark Mangino. Gone are the high expectations of the past few seasons.
With new quarterback Kale Pick under center (backup Jordan Webb is expected to play as well) and Turner Gill on the sidelines, things are going to be different at Kansas this year.
Many are happy to see the beginning of a new era, but this is not the ideal time for change. The Jayhawks’ schedule is soft this season. Seven games come at home and one will be played at Arrowhead Stadium. Texas, Oklahoma and Texas Tech are nowhere to be found.
In 2007, Kansas took advantage of a similar slate of games and went 12-1. This time, few are predicting it to reach a bowl game.
