Any win Kansas can get is a good one.
SE Missouri State is coming off a bad year and in need of an overhaul on both sides of the ball, but like Kansas cares. The Jayhawks need this.
They’ve done one thing well over the brutal run of losing seasons – they’ve been okay the openers against FCSers.
Over the last eight seasons, Kansas is 6-2 in the first week tune-ups. Okay, so it lost to South Dakota State to start the 2015 season, and it dropped the 2010 lid-lifter to North Dakota State – no shame there – but it needs this.
With Central Michigan and Ohio up next, there’s a chance to a strong start – but nothing is taken for granted when it comes to the Jayhawks.
One Reason Why SE Missouri State Will Win
SEMO has to hope Kansas goes Kansas and starts turning the ball over from the start. The Jayhawks will start pushing the ball down the field faster and with a greater tempo, but they’ll also take a whole slew of chances to get the whole thing going.
After throwing 22 interceptions total, and with two or more given away in every game, it’s the team’s biggest issue on a team full of big issues. The Redhawks have to come up with takeaways and take advantage of all the chances because …
One Reason Why Kansas Will Win
SEMO has to deal with a whole lot of new starters on both sides of the ball.
It’s not like the Redhawks were all that great last season, and now they have to replace six starters on offense – including a bulk of the line – and with seven starters done on D. The line has to undergo an overhaul, star RB Will Young is finished, and both starting kickers are done.
Kansas had better win this without breathing hard.
What’s Going To Happen
Kansas is still dealing with a quarterback controversy to figure out who’ll run the new Air Raid offense, and both Carter Stanley and Peyton Bender will get their shot to show what they can do.
Enjoy this, long-suffering Jayhawk fans. It’s time to enjoy an easy win again.
