Kansas Jayhawks 2014 NCAA Football Gambling Odds & Predictions

(Big 12) KU Jayhawks

There is no doubt that Kansas is the worst program in the conference right now. They thought they were making a splashy hire with Charlie Weis but success hasn’t followed.

KU

  • Kansas Jayhawks Gambling Odds
  • Coach: Charlie Weis
  • 2013 Record: 3-9
  • Gambling Odds to win BCS Championship: +200000
  • Gambling Odds to win Big 12 Conference: 100/1

Kansas is always going to have built in disadvantages on the gridiron but I think this will be Weis’ last season unless it is obvious they are showing improvement.

I doubt that will be the case. He might not even last the season if things get really ugly.

Strengths

This is a tough one. At the very least this is a pretty experienced team with all of the starters save two projected to be juniors and seniors. They may be handicapped in terms of overall talent but this should mean that this team should not be beating itself on the field.

Last year the defense was not totally terrible and they have nine starters returning on that side of the ball. They could be especially strong in the secondary where they have experience plus ideal size and athleticism. There are a lot of pass happy teams in the B12 so this group has to play well.

Sophomore QB Montell Cozart looks like a player. He is more playmaker than passer at this stage so the hope is that Weis can develop that part of his game over the next three seasons, if given the chance. This team has to start scoring more points and he gives them a chance.

Weaknesses

I know you can make arguments in his favour but I think that Charlie Weis is in over his head as a head coach, even at a place like Kansas. His results as an OC at Florida were far from great and he is not giving the Jayhawks any sort of noticeable tactical advantage.

Cozart is mobile but there is still concern about providing him adequate protection.

There will be there new starters on the offensive line for Kansas and they will all be on the right side of the line. Last year this was a decent running team having balance will help out those new linemen immensely.

On defense the Jayhawks need to take a lot of chances, especially in terms of blitzing to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks. There secondary is the strength of the defense but with the amount of chances they take, eventually they get burned.

In case you couldn’t tell I am not expecting Kansas to be much of a factor in the B12 this season. A few years back when they went to the BCS is looking more and more like an outlier with every passing season.

This year there won’t be a lot of spots where you will need to look closely at them but don’t miss when they host Iowa State. After getting clobbered on the road in back to back weeks public opinion will be way down on them.

They just might be a home dog which would be great.
