1. College Football News Preview 2020: Kansas Jayhawks Win Total Prediction, What Will Happen
Can Kansas take a positive step in the second season under Les Miles?
He’s still a great head coach, and he’s still dealing with a program that needs a whole lot of reworking. The hope is for offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon and the rest of the staff to come up with something more with the parts they still have.
Pooka Williams is an all-star running back, the receivers are good, and the quarterback play should be fine. But the lines are the concern – they have to be a whole lot better for the Jayhawks to finally turn a corner.
There isn’t a high bar here. 2009 was the last time the program won more than three games in a season, and 2008 was the last winning campaign.
This can be a decent season and the team can and should be stronger, but there can’t be a miss like the 12-7 loss to Coastal Carolina.
Set The Kansas Jayhawks Regular Season Win Total At … 4
Enough already, Kansas.
Beat New Hampshire. Beat Coastal Carolina – even though it’s on the road. Win two Big 12 games for the first time since 2008.
It’s not just that the program keeps losing, it’s that it keeps losing by having what seems like the exact same season over and over again.
Expect the offense to be better and open it up a bit more, and it’ll need to with another mediocre year from the defensive side.
Kansas will win three games – because that’s what Kansas does – but expect Les Miles and his coaching staff to be good for one more.
