Don't panic if your post doesn't appear immediately.

What started as a solid game has quickly blown up

Start with as FG to take a 3-0 lead, then a pick six to go up 10-0, then a fumble recovery just outside the red zone to set the O up for a possible 17-0 lead. Bender overthrows two wide open TD passes leading to a FG try. Kick is blocked and returned for a TD by Rutgers, 10-7 KU.

O has yet to do anything despite the great positioning the D has given them.

D has come to play.
O has yet to show any life.

Rutgers is not a good team. This is the last game KU will be favored in for the rest of this year.

Let's go, Jayhawks!

Notably a completion to Jeremiah Booker (fantastic catch) from Kendrick, not Bender.

KU 17-7 with 4:46 to go in Q1

KU D now has more takeaways in just 9 quarters of 2018 than in all of 2017!

On the Rutgers 39. Can the O do it again?

Well, yes, they can -- but I really do need to be more specific in my questions.
Two 10 yard holding penalties - the first wiping out a TD for Pooka Williams - take them out of "and goal" position, and then the FG try is AGAIN blocked because the holder can't handle the ball for a second straight FG opportunity!

At least this time it wasn't returned for a score.

Man, if the O was playing anything like the D it would be 45-0!

Bowen's crew playing impressively in the last 6 quarters.

After Rutgers' offense finally managed to score against the KU D, the KU offense responded with Khalil Herbert taking his first run of the game 59 yards to the house!

KU 31-14 with 2:29 to go in the first half.

Chris Harris in the season opener, now Todd between Q1 and Q2. The Texas Gunslinger returns to Memorial for the honor, gives what he calls in a halftime interview "my last official fist pump" to the crowd and KU responds to lead Rutgers 31-14 at the half.

Plus has been the sterling play of the D.

The O has shone moments, but clearly still needs a QB. Bender missed two wide open TD passes that would have resulted in a 45-7 score at the half if completed. The rushing game has been the savior, 168 yds on 21 carries, but 59 of that was on Khalil Herbert's 59 yard first touch of the game in Q2. GOT to do better!

Almost time for the start of the second half, and KU gets the ball first.

LET'S GO JAYHAWKS!

In Rutgers territory, 1st and goal after a Pooka Williams run.

Can the O capitalize on the great D opportunities?

Never been so glad to be so wrong.

55 yard TD run by 3rd string RB Deron Thompson, KU 55-14.

And the D was simply great. 6 takeaways, and two misses -- balls thrown right at KU D lineman that they simply could not react in time to catch -- that could have made it 8.

Nice feeling for a change!

Let's enjoy it while we can, folks!

Oh, and can we get Todd Reesing in the stands for every game the rest of this year?

Please?

As I recall the last time the Hawks were cycling up under FHCMM the Defense got decent and kept us in games while the Offense faced challenges.

The dual QB thing seems awkward at best. And there seem to be a lot of balls thrown to the open field ( wrong read)

But, there are some play-makers on defense that have got to the right spot on the field quite a bit the past two weeks.

This turnover disparity won't continue.

Baylor is loosing at home to Duke and there are a couple other Big XII teams that might not be that bad of match ups for the Hawks.

For now the players, fans and coaches should enjoy a solid win over a Big Ten team.
