Dayne Crist not the answer at QB

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis We’re only one-third of the way into the 2012 football season, and Kansas finds itself in the same position as it has for the past few years: hopeless, with a long season ahead. This KU team appears to have improved in most facets (mostly on the defensive side), but it hasn’t shown in the win column. The Jayhawks might be more competitive against superior teams this season, but moral victories aren’t good enough in college football. A main reason for the Jayhawks getting off to a 1-3 start is the subpar play of senior transfer Dayne Crist at quarterback. Crist has only completed 48 percent of his passes, with just 763 yards…

Despite Another Loss, Kansas Defense Making Strides

By Andrew Curtis Coming off a devastating loss at home in week 2 to Rice, nobody knew what to expect from Kansas going into a matchup with 16th ranked TCU, and certainly didn’t anticipate a close game going into the 4th quarter. The Jayhawk defense came out fast and furious, swarming to the football, getting stops when they needed to and displaying a bend-but-don’t-break mentality. KU forced a turnover on the first two possessions, one on TCU’s bad snap to quarterback Casey Pachall, which rolled practically halfway across the field and was recovered by Josh Williams, and the other on a forced fumble by Bradley McDougald, who had 12 tackles, a sack and two forced…

Bear Cave: Uphill Battle Ahead for Weis and Company

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis It’s time to take a step back and assess the damage. Just two weeks ago, the Kansas football team was in good spirits and more confident than it had been heading into the season in the past 3 years. Kansas opened the season with a win that wasn’t anything to write home about despite wins coming few and far between recently. Now, after blowing an 11-point 2nd half lead in a crippling loss to an underwhelming Rice Owls squad, things are looking pretty bleak at the Anderson Family Football Complex. The fact of the matter is, Charlie Weis might have bit off more than he can chew, at least for the time…

Bear Cave: Kansas Football Good and Bad in Opener

bear cave

By Andrew Curtis As a coach, getting your team to perform the way you want them to in the first game of the season isn’t always realistic, especially when it’s the first game of your tenure. This was exactly the case Saturday night at Memorial Stadium, where Kansas prevailed 31-17 over South Dakota State. It was neither pretty nor ugly. We saw the Jayhawk offense put up 263 yards on the ground due mainly to the backfield combination of Tony Pierson and Taylor Cox. We also witnessed the defense providing a horrific flashback to the Turner Gill era, giving up a 99-yard touchdown run to the FCS Jackrabbits in the first quarter. KU also forced…
