HALFTIME: Kansas State 10, Kansas 6: We told you it was bye week

Of course, we had something different in mind when we said it.

That’s the KU section, as evidenced by the presence of the Pride over here on the near side.

Kansas finally scored points for the first time in eons.

K-State’s offense couldn’t find the end zone.

The Cat defense is playing like a spoiled can of potted meat.

And either Kansas has somehow turned into Alabama, or K-State has managed to make Kansas look better than Oklahoma.

These are our takeaways after a first half which saw the Wildcats somehow manage to only take a 10-6 lead into the locker room at halftime against a team so bad that multiple articles this week have asked if they’re the worst Jayhawk team ever. And KU gets the ball to start the second half.

Consider that before complaining that we’re being critical, eh?

We’ve complained about the lack of speed in between the line and the secondary, but it took Robbie on Twitter to really point out the crux of the problem:

And it’s true. Both Tanking and Kirby are fine individually, if paired with a linebacker who has wheels. But having them both in all the time just cripples the defense.

Back in a couple of hours with, hopefully, a less cynical and more ebullient report.
