KU's loss to North Dakota State this past saturday at home in Lawrence was the most embarrassing in the program's history. After the program was elevated to never-before seen heights by winning the Orange Bowl and putting together back-to-back bowl seasons, Turner Gill has almost destroyed everything Mark Mangino built with one swift stroke.
At first I thought I was overreacting, but taking into account KU's opponent, I am confident that this is the lowest KU has ever sunk. North Dakota State is an FCS school, and not even a good one at that. The Bison went 3-8 last year, and lost key playmakers on offense and defense. KU couldn't even score one touchdown against this team? Not one? Absolutely pathetic.
I know KU lost some of the most prolific offensive players in the program's history, but the team still has talent. It has former high recruits all over the offense and every offensive lineman has starting experience. KU should have been able to play its scrubs and still beat this team by two touchdowns.
KU looked unprepared, unmotivated and downright helpless against "mighty" North Dakota State. Turner Gill inherited a team with young talent due to Mark Mangino's best recruiting classes ever before his departure. Gill needs to at least make progress this season and win a few games, or his tenure in Lawrence will be shorter than anyone ever could have guessed.
