Kansas has spent the past two weeks preparing to face their intrastate rival this weekend in Kansas State. That in itself presents plenty of challenges. If you haven't noticed, Kansas State happens to be pretty good. Going back to last season, the Wildcats are 14-3 including a 4-0 mark this season with wins over Miami and Oklahoma.

The Jayhawks, meanwhile, have limped to a 1-3 start after losing to Rice, Northern Illinois, and TCU.

Hey, nobody said it was going to be easy, Charlie Weis.

The slow start prompted a reality check coming from KU's own student newspaper on Thursday. This wouldn't normally be a big deal, and the article itself wasn't overly critical. The cover of the paper, however, certainly caused Weis to take notice.

Not that the cover necessarily needs defending, but what were they supposed to do, put a picture of the 2008 Orange Bowl trophy on the front page?

This is a program that has won a combined six games over the past three seasons. And most of those losses weren't just losses, they were the type of losses that stick with you and get a coach fired after only two seasons.

Look no further than this week's opponent who has beaten Kansas by a combined score of 118-28 the past two times they've taken the field.  And both games were played on KU's home turf.

Previewing Kansas and Kansas State

Does Kansas have any chance of pulling an upset in Manhattan? It's not likely, but if the first four games are any indication, it should be much closer than the past two games between these two teams which have went to Kansas State by a combined score if 118-28.
