i guess they probably can't be compelled to reschedule since the game wouldn't have had any outcome on who plays in the dr pepper

Would need 11.  OOCs against South Dakota, at Coastal, at Duke.  5 conference home games fwiw.

If they can pull of a loss against South Dakota, then I really like the chances.  Win that one, and it's a nail biter the rest of the way. 

If they don't get it done next year, then Weis' first season (11 losses) goes off the books, and it'll be pretty tough after that.

Again, I'd like to point you guys to my calcs I did a few pages back.

Glad we got to stomp their souls before they were rona'd into oblivion.

Also, could be them trying to avoid 100 in 10 :shakesfist:



That got me thinking again (yep, another Purple Oil stat post) because I feel like we've been having that conversation a lot these past few seasons. So...


From 2008-2017 KU had 93 losses
From 2009-2018 KU had 97 losses
From 2010-2019 KU had 99 losses

From 2011-2020 KU currently has 97 losses with 3 games left on the schedule (TCU, Tech, and Texas(rescheduled)). So unless one of those games is cancelled, it looks like they're going for the history books this season, despite playing 2 fewer games than normal.



Does the future look any better?



To avoid having 100 losses in 10 years (possibly again) between 2012-2021, and assuming that they go 0-10 this year, KU would need to have at least a 3-9 record next year.

To avoid having 100 losses in 10 years (for the 3rd year in a row) between 2013-2022, assuming they go 0-10 this year and 2-10 next year, they would need to post at least a 2-10 season in 2022.


To give any percentages to this is tough, because much of it depends upon how the rest of this season plays out, if at all. However, based on history and current trends, there's about an 97% chance that KU hits 100 losses in 10 years this season IF the games are played.

It's looking around an upper 70's % chance that it happens again next season if this season is played on out. BTW, that's only looking at next season, not the possibility that it happens in back to back seasons.

Right now it's a coin flip for it happening in the 2013-2022 season, and that's having to take a fair amount of assumptions into play.


Still, the fact that I'm able to ballpark these figures does not bode well for our fighting Jayhawks.

So, is it officially going for 100 in 10 on saturday?  I may have to plan something for History.l

Apparently if they don't play this week they will have to reschedule to next week.

Please don't tease me like this. Most sources are saying the game has been cancelled, not postponed.

It was on one of college football podcasts I listen to, Andy Staples maybe? I guess they were wrong.

Not a single one of you can understand how upset I am.  I am not even kidding slightly that I had planned to meet some buds at the Johnnys on 39th and watch every play and get super into 100/10.  F my life

Sorry Dug  :frown:

The 100/10 would have really been an exclamation point for Futility U.   I won't say New Futility U, because there had to be two teams to make up the Toilet Bowl back in the day, and the other was, KU.

The sad thing about it, even though I like our TSC buddies a lot.  Is that print journalism is dead, and so their won't be a Futility U 2.0 cover on SI.

I'm sure it's a significant amount of TV money lost from not playing at all, right?

Thought I saw roughly 4-5 million per game not played or somethign earlier this year.

I remember reading that but I assumed we met some sort of threshold already to meet the contract because otherwise they would absolutely play them

Yes, this.

Also I don't know why everyone is down on 10/100, pretty sure they'll be dog crap next year too.

Yeah, but now they need to go 2-10 instead of 3-9 to make it happen.

Sources: Kansas planning to hire Group of 5 offensive line coach

By Zach Barnett -   December 21, 2020

Lee Grimes is expected to be the new offensive line coach at Kansas, sources tell FootballScoop.  The hiring is expected to be complete following the first of the year.

Grimes is currently the offensive line coach at Charlotte, a job he has held since February. He spent the 2018 and ’19 seasons as an offensive analyst on Jimbo Fisher’s staff at Texas A&M, his alma mater.  Grimes has also worked as a GA at Minnesota, as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator at East Texas Baptist, as the assistant offensive line coach at Arkansas-Monticello and at Lubbock’s Estacado High School.  He was a member of Texas A&M’s All-2000s team as a player.

Grimes will step in to an open position on Les Miles’s staff. Miles let Luke Meadows go in November, and John Morookian stepped in as offensive line coach for the club’s final two games.
