In football there are blowouts, there are beatings, and then there are games in which you basically drop a bomb on your opponent. On Saturday in Waco, Baylor dropped about 15 bombs on Kansas.
The Bears put up 678 yards of offense en route to a 55-7 shellacking. Robert Griffin III out performed the entire Jayhawks offense by himself, throwing for 380 yards and rushing for 64 more, finishing the day with four touchdowns. Kansas had 270 yards of total offense and, obviously, just one touchdown. Both the 678 yards of offense, and Griffin's 444 yards are Baylor records. It was also the largest margin of victory for Baylor against any Big 12 opponent.
And the Bears did all this before putting the offense on cruise control in the fourth quarter.
It's another embarrassing loss in what has been a roller coaster ride of a season for the Jayhawks. They've gone from losing to North Dakota State to start the season, to an upset win over Georgia Tech the following week, and now this debacle. It's obvious that Turner Gill has a lot of work to do in Lawrence if the Jayhawks ever plan on getting back to a BCS game.
Right now, 2007 seems like a very long time ago.
