Growing pains were expected in yet another building year for the Kansas Jayhawks under first year coach Charlie Weis but blowing a two-score lead in a depressing last second loss to baseball powerhouse Rice University in Week 2 is never easy to swallow.
Despite considerable differences in this year's Kansas football team and the 2010 team under then-first year coach Turner Gill, today's matchup with No. 16 ranked TCU had a few similarities to the 2010 Week 2 game against Georgia Tech.
Kansas capitalized on multiple Georgia Tech mistakes with a few highlight reel plays to knock off the Yellow Jackets in a stunner one week following one of the program's worst home losses in school history—to North Dakota State.
Unlike 2010, KU was unable to produce an unexpected upset win. The Horned Frogs left Lawrence this afternoon with an odd 20-6 victory in their Big 12 debut as they brushed off four fumbles, three of which came in the red zone. All things considered, the Jayhawks played adequate enough to steal a huge early tenure victory for Weis & Co., but there remained a few glaring inadequacies that held them back.
