Going 1-11 without a win in FBS play may seem pretty bad, and that’s because it is. But Kansas can’t get worse, and they actually played much better than a 1-11 team, nearly beating Texas, Texas Tech, Northern Illinois, and Oklahoma State. Bill Belichick disciple Charlie Weis had higher expectations than last year’s disappointment, and its unlikely Kansas loses 10 games again. James Sims and Tony Pierson, the running back duo, were a real bright spot on this team and should be again. Neither Dayne Crist nor Michael Cummings were very good at quarterback last year, so Jake Heaps will take over there. He’s an unknown but scouts say he’s talented, and Kansas doesn’t really have any better options. On defense, a unit that ranked 112th in the country in points allowed will have plenty of starters return but is still miles behind the rest of the conference. Leading tackler Ben Heeney returns, however, and their only four-star recruit is defensive tackle Marquel Combs. In a school dominated by basketball for ages, the football program has to rebuild. But if the running back duo continues to be effective and Heaps can play a bit, Kansas could be interesting to watch in 2013.
