It may sound funny, but I am going to go out on a limb.
But it would not really surprise me if the Bears played the socks off KSU this weekend. Will the Bears get the win? I don't know, but I believe that it may be pretty close game.
Why? We had some shots against OU this weekend -- a sure TD grab dropped, a few overthrows in deep balls by Florence -- but the opportunities were there. It did not sound like OU (both team & coaches) were that thrilled with the win. I think they felt it would be a complete blowout. And it was not.
Also, we have a rejuvenated running game the last couple of weeks. As I stated in a post prior to KU, that could help us immensely. It is giving our defense some much needed rest. OU got some yards, but they did not annhilate us as I believe they expected. Are we there yet on defense? No. But we finally seem to be moving more in the right direction.
Turnovers the last 2 weeks. We have cut them down drastically and taken much better care of the ball. And we have gotten some from opposing offenses.
Those things give us a shot against KSU. Will we win? Tight game coming up I believe. And just maybe a win. Williams and Florence might have a huge game. And Seastrunk continues to break out. If the deep ball comes back, Seastrunk/Martin runs well and we win the turnover battle -- well. Lookout.
