2016 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Over'
I know this might sound crazy, but I actually think Kansas is going to be much better this season. Of course, there is really nowhere to go but up after an 0-12 season, so "better" is relative. But Kansas is a team that might actually be able to compete this year and could even match their highest single-season win total of the decade (three).
Kansas was outscored by 31 points per game last year and lost to FCS foe South Dakota State. It was a low-point for a program that hasn't been the least bit competitive since running Mark Mangino out of town. (Boy, I bet the Jayhawks wish they had a do-over for that decision, by the way.) They were outscored by nearly 36 points per game in Big 12 play and lost just one league game by less than 10 points.
As bad as Kansas was, they were even worse than expected; the Jayhawks went a pathetic 3-9 against the spread in 2015, and they have somehow gone just 12-24 ATS the past three years.
Regardless, there are reasons for optimism this season. Kansas has 16 returning starters (versus just seven last year), and they have nine seniors in the starting 22. Last year was David Beaty's first season as a college head coach, and he obviously had growing pains. But he should have his charges much more competitive for Round 2.
Kansas has only three winnable games this year. They host FCS's Rhode Island in the opener, and I would be shocked if they lost to another lower-division school this year. The Jayhawks also host Ohio and Iowa State this season. Maybe I'm being optimistic, but I do think Kansas can win a one of those two games. I hit last year with the 'under' but this time around I'll take the optimist's path. Play 'over'.
