Remember when Charlie Weis' hot seat was scorching and Mack Brown's was cooler than the other side of your pillow? My, how times have changed.
Weis is actually doing some good things in Lawrence, Kansas. The Jayhawks have two double-digit losses (TCU and Kansas State) so far but only one was a rout. Moreover, Kansas hung with Kansas State for an entire half before finally losing 56-16.
Three of the Jayhawks' losses were single-digit losses and if you compare that number to last year's debacle—four double-digit losses at the same point of the season—that's progress.
Should the Sooners be worried? No, but let's hope they shake off that massive hangover from last week's 63-21 Red River Rivalry rout by Oklahoma. And let's also hope they aren't peeking ahead to their date with No. 5 Notre Dame.
The Jayhawks will probably throw the Sooners off in the first quarter because Weis will throw some tricks and fakes at Stoops. Everybody and his brother knows it's coming yet everybody seemingly falls for it—right, Kansas State?
Eventually, the 35-point favorite Sooners will wake up and turn this game into a rout.
