Hey! The Kansas passing offense has been almost as bad as WVU’s pass defense this season. Even better, for you, is this trend from the past month or so: The Jayhawks don’t even really try to pass the ball anymore.
So that’s good, right? I mean, WVU’s run defense is actually pretty good and would be better if not for Sam Richardson’s sudden and unexpected exploits last week. But it’s strength against strength and even if your strength gives a little, it’s unlikely, though, certainly, not impossible, to score fast and often enough to keep up with the Mountaineers.
Get a lead, force the Jayhawks to pass and that seventh win comes a little easier.
Yet Kansas will not make it easy and will pull from a very deep bag of tricks to find something to use against the Mountaineers.
“That forced me to spend more time with the offensive staff trying to figure out ways to stay one step ahead of the defenses so we’re not dialing up the same runs every week,” Weis said. “When the defensive coordinators study you on tape, they aren’t getting a look at the same look week to week.”
