Last week KU ans saw what can happen when both James Sims and TonyPierson are in the same backfeld and are completely healthy — and suspensionree. In case anyone missed it, they rushed or 329 yards and two touchdowns. Nota bad day o work. Any deense preparing or the Kansas passing game might bewasting its time.

Against Iowa State, Kansas will need to be dominant on third down. The Cycloneshave converted only 38 percent o their third-down attempts. That’s one status quodeensive coordinator Dave Campo would like to keep. I the Jayhawks can show moreprogress in limiting big plays and stay sound on third downs, it should be a good dayor Kansas.

As Charlie Weis put it, this game is not about the University, theootball program or the ans. This is about the seniors who have gonethrough three coaches, long losing streaks and too many blowouts, butthey have taken it all in stride to become ocal points or Weis’ rebuildingplan. Saturday is about them and a chance to leave Kansas with onemore ond memory.

Keeping the run eectiveweek ater week has becomea crucial part o the Jayhawksoense. Kansas coach CharlieWeis said coming up with newschemes or his backs is one ohis avorite things he does toprepare or an opponent. Fanshave to wait and see i it worksagain.

It’s all about staying solid or Clint Bo-wen’s unit. The Cyclones are averaging 18yards per kicko return, nothing daunting,but they still need to be respected. And nowthat Nick Prolago has hit a ew feld goals,he might be a more viable option than hewas in the past.

Can Kansas keep up the run game?Fans ask this question every week, because every week it seems moreimportant. Pierson needs to perorm at the level he did against Texas Techor Sims to stay eective. Pierson can do this, but will he?Kansas wins, plain and simple.It’s time or the Jayhawks’ im-provement to show up in the win-loss column. Regardless, Baby Jay should go wild as soon as theseniors step onto the feld.

 James Sims can extend his Kansas record with a seventhstraight hundred-yard game against Iowa State.Kansas can break a streak o 19 straightlosses in the Big 12 with a win.

Tanner Hawkinson will make his 47th start orthe Jayhawks this Saturday, breaking the Kan-sas record held by Hessley Hempstead.I it’s possible to have any momentum ater a crush-ing double-overtime loss, Kansas does. The productiono the run game, the timely feld goals and the big de-ensive stops didn’t amount to a win, but the Jayhawksshould have a boatload o confdence in their ability toexecute.

Forget about one player;keep an eye on the entire o-ensive line this week. Thoseplayers have been underap-preciated or the majorityo the season, and yet theirblocking is largely respon-sible or the Jayhawks’ rundominance.
