    So...how much longer do the Huskers stay with their awesome coach? Personally, I want him to stay forever after we beat them like that.

    that was awesome to watch KU win like that. impressive team. now ranked 4th in the BCS. they basically control their destiny to play in the national title game.

    Yeah, I was rooting for KU vs BC title game. KU basicly has a game vs. Mizzu left, and they are ranked #6, after that, it would be the Big 12 championship vs OU. So if KU was able to beat both Mizzu and somehow beat OU, they would more than deserve to be in the National title game. I wouldn't mind an Oregon vs KU game either. I just don't want Ohio St or LSU to be in the title game, especially Ohio St.

    I don't think they are the best team in the land by any stretch. I'm really hoping they don't win out.

    They were a much better team last year. They lost a Heisman winner, and a few more key pieces. They are a solid team, but not #1 in the nation. Oregon should be #1 honestly. LSU should be #2. KU should be #3. OSU should be #4.

    nah, OSU's defense blows last year's unit away. the running game is much better this year. QB play is as solid as ever, nothing spectacular. i take this year's team over last year's. oh, and this year's team over any other team this year.

    The Jayhawks have an incredible history in basketball and many might know this, but KU has also been historically a Track & Field powerhouse.
    But football, not nearly as much though they had some good teams way, way back there (anybody remember a QB for the Chargers named John Hadl ? he played at KU).

    Yeah, if possible, our track team is actually more storied than our basketball team. Our football team has had some good teams way back. We also did give the NFL Gale Sayers. We haven't been relevant in college football since 1995-early 1996 honestly.

    Jim Ryan - pretty fare to midland miler.
    Gale Sayers - yea he was a descent running back.
    And then in basketball - tall, skinny guy from PA - Wilt the Stilt.
    I dunno, but I'd say they've had some pretty dang good jocks at Lawrence
    thru the years.

    Poor Diapher.

    Wasn't Nebraska ranked in the top ten this season at the start? Oh how the mighty have fallen.

    At the game, we (the KU students) started a chant saying "don't fire Bill, don't fire Bill."

    Also, #70 Slauson became our personal target when on the sidelines.

    And when Ganz started self destructing in the second half, after each int he would throw, we would chant "You let the whole team down".

    I love college football. KU for #1!!!

    YOUNGTexanFan you had a great and demoralizing win over Nebraska Saturday. It takes a rare and special “talent” to pollute a 40-50 year old tradition of winning like most teams have done the past few years to the Huskers. I would like you to read this paragraph very closely by Jason King a Yahoo Sports writer on October 19, 2007 so you can see why I have a problem with your actions in the stands that made you feel so giddy and elated with your football experience.

    "Nebraska football fans are in my opinion some of footballs greatest fans. I can remember watching one of Nebraska’s rare losses and seeing Nebraska fans actually standing to cheer a good play by the other team. Nope this wasn’t a jab at their team it was just gracious football fans recognizing a great play."

    Diapher, I have friends in Omaha whom I talk to all the time. I know your pain. Nebraska faithful have always been class acts.

    I have gone to the little league world series a few years back. have yet to goto a game, was hoping I could this year but things have not worked out like I have wanted.

    It will get better, just do not let those that heckle get you down.

    Nebraska Football = Winning tradition
    Jayhawk Football = backseat to their basketball program..

    Yeah, I think Kansas could win 10 national champions in football all back-to-back and they still wouldn't be as popular as their basketball team

    Dude, relax. We do it to every team we play. Before say our 6th win in a row, football was just an excuse to drink for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This is a true story, as I have gone quite a few saturdays without any actual food. Kansas Football is still a joke as a whole, so honestly, we are just riding this drunken wagon as long as it last hoping for a playoff system and waiting for basketball.
