Great publicity. And a jinx.

Sports Illustrated is putting the Kansas football team on the cover of its popular magazine this week, a shot of utility man Kerry Meier catching his touchdown in last week's 45-7 victory over Iowa State. The words "Dream season (so far)" are underneath.

Of course, SI will now get 100 percent of the blame if Missouri wins Saturday's game. The SI cover jinx has been the subject of research in the past, and now

KU football is another example to dissect.

But it's a good problem to have.

Mangino's team isn't susceptible to jinxes, especially since they've been bucking the standard all year long.

If this team loses on Saturday, it sure as hell won't be from a jinx or lack of effort.

I can't wait for the showdown at Arrowhead. Hell yeah. :)

The SI jinx is not that big of a deal. Sure, there have been some teams that lost after they were on the cover. Then again, there also have been many teams that won after being on the cover. I don't buy this jinx BS. The best team on Saturday night will win the game, period.

BTW, I gotta give some credit. That Photoshop of the KU LBers from a couple years ago with the skirts is pretty funny. Somebody has some serious PShop skills.

IMO the East and West coast media can not wait for KU, MU and the Big 12 to be out of the BCS NC picture. They truly hope MU beats KU and OU or Texas beats MU. Same old East/West coast media bias...

your over confidence is the only joke here. KU very possibly could beat MU, (i don't think it will, but i'm wrong more often than i'd like.) but to think the jayhawks can demolish the tigers is just plain homerism. it will be a close game decided by no more than 9 points. keep doubting the jinx, then next week start a thread "the SI curse is real" and i will post in it laughing at you.

Not really, I do not believe in the jinx, sure it happens alot, so does the announcer calling for a missed FT, INT, error on a fielder. If you call it out enough, it's bound to happen.

This just gives the Tiggers something else to feel good about and more misery when it backfires on them.

Give it a rest, stop being so damn hateful, shit you are the frazod of Jayhawk Planet. :D

To that rarity that is the classy Mizzou fan, I want to say congratulations. Your team is awesome. The game the other night was my first chance to see them play and I'm thoroughly impressed with your offense. I only see two liabilities that could hinder you hoisting some trophies:

1) idiotic penalties.

2) Your offense is so talented and efficient that you seem to win despite your head coach. He made some very stupid calls. I understand you want to win a game, but a fake field goal on 4th and long when your kicker is more than capable? Among others, just dumb.

Other than those two things, I see no reason why you can't stay on top through the remainder of this carosel of a football season.

Good luck versus OU.

I was beside myself with all our penalties. We had you backed up in 3rd and 20-something and William Moore tosses the ball at a KU lineman...taunting, 1st down. Stupid. We need to regain our composure and discipline if plan on going any further.

Moore had a couple of REALLY big and stupid penalties if I"m remembering right. But isn't he also the one who made the pick at the 2 (which by the way you got screwed on the spot of that ball, not that it mattered anyway).

I'm very upset that we lost, but I think it's clear that we had to play a flawless game to beat you and we didn't. If we make our field goals, don't have stupid penalties ourselves and have maybe one fewer turnover, well who knows what the outcome could have been.

If you would have told me in August that KU would finish 11-1 and #5 in the BCS after the regular season, I'd have taken it. It's just painful to lose the way we did, to who we did.

Yeah, Moore has been clutch since we lost Pig Brown, but I think its going to his head a little bit. We seemed to get a lot of holding calls also. I'm thinking that's because the KU D was the best we had faced in a while and they're very disciplined and quick to the ball. Hopefully that will prepare us for the OU game.

...and I'm still shaking my head at the spot he got on his interception.
