Maybe if I say it quietly, the Jinx Gods won't hear

I'm hesitant to even post this.

KU football is kicking a remarkable amount of butt this year. I doubt they even have TIME to take names. Undefeated. No. 2 in the country in scoring. No. 7 in defense.

Todd Reesing, the team's quarterback, is breaking records like every night was Disco Demolition Night.

The multitalented Reesing uses his healing powers on a Colorado defender.

They beat OSU last night (to help me celebrate the release of my book) and are now 10-0, which hasn't happened since TWO centuries ago. It's exciting and, frankly, a little disconcerting for Kansas fans. This is unexplored territory, and we're wandering around without a compass. Fortunately KU's head coach, Mark Mangino, seems to know the way. Even if that way seems accompanied by a few too many onion ring baskets.

Mangino: Football IQ equal to scale readout.

Friend and fellow bloggist Erin Thompson has celebrated this historic event in traditional fashion. That's right: a celebrity look-alike comparison of the players. Check it out here... and go, Jayhawks!
