The Jayhawks are easily the worst team in Power 5 football. With all due respect to Indiana, there is no other program that can compete with Kansas for this title.

In the last three years, KU has three wins in the Big 12: By one point versus TCU in ‘18; by three points in ‘16 against Texas; by 20 points against Iowa State in ‘14.

3. Have you signed that contract?
4. What are you thinking?
5. Por que?
6. Is this a joke?
7. Like, no, seriously ...why?
8. Do you hate your family just that much?
