31-7 win over Central Michigan.

KU played well all around. Defense was excellent with 6 take aways, giving the O lots of short fields. And the O actually did okay in taking advantage.

Freshman RB Pooka Williams is going to be a star. Not a starter yet, but when he was in he produced.

I say.....

One week you get your bowl scraped, the next week you eat a cupcake!!!

Glad to get a win AND on the road. A streak I’m happy to see end (although I had NO IDEA it was that bad until I read your post, HE.)

A good week indeed. I’ll take it.

Last win away from home was 2009 against UTEP in El Paso, Todd Reesing's last season. Won first 5 that season, then (IIRC) Reesing got hurt against Colorado and was never the same, KU losing it's last 7 of the season.

It is only fair that after being so critical after the bad games that I grant some kudos after a very solid performance.

Kudos to players and coaches.

That was fun to watch.

My first post on the football board. I usually start watching or listening to every game with the expectation of becoming so nauseated by bad play that I turn it off and go do something more enjoyable like banging my head against a wall. I am admittedly not very knowledgable about things football but even I can recognize pathetic effort and execution. And that is what we have had to some degree or other for the last 10 years or so. But I must say, today was a rather enjoyable experience. I do not follow football much so I don’t know if Cnetal Michigan is a pathetic cupcake or semi-decent team. But we won on the road and that is something that we haven’t done since 2009. I still think the end for Beaty is nigh but i am happy for him for today and this coming week. How many days until hoops season?

Don't worry about the mules, just load the wagon!!

Now all the stories are saying it was a 46 game streak, I reckon because the last 3 losses to mOO at Arrowhead weren’t really true road games.

Whatever.

Either way, it’s still the longest streak in D1 history.
And it’s over.

Now the important thing is can KU win another game this year?

Next up — Rutgers in Lawrence.
KU’s best chance for a win for the rest of this season.

Let’s go, JAYHAWKS!

wonder if Roy took “stank ‘em” with him when he left. (Isn’t that the stuffed monkey that finally got knocked off Roy’s back?)

I sure hope this is a monkey off the football program’s back.

No, I’m not drunk......
