Mangino game strategy revealed
The KU coach, hungry for a win over the Huskers, has selected from his menu of options to cook up an offensive gameplan designed to put NU in a pickle. His team feasted on cupcakes during its non-conference schedule, but he knows there are no more creampuffs with only B12 teams left to play.
Look for a smorgasbord of plays to keep NU bottled up: The Jayhawks will first try to run it up the gut, using basic bread and butter plays that reduce the chance of turnovers. Mangino thinks his OL can pancake NU defenders who try to dig in and jam up the middle – with NU’s injury-depleted LB corps doing donuts around KU's fast, shake-and-bake RBs. If the running game doesn't work, he'll go the spread, roll out his QB to keep him from getting sandwiched, and throw deep to try to toast NU's DBs. KU’s wideouts aren’t butter-fingered; those guys can really catch the chalupa (as Jim Rose would say).
Mangino always finds a way to make lemonade out of lemons. Even if the Jayhawks lay an egg on offense, he’s confident his D can save their bacon. Stick a fork in NU if KU has a late lead, as Mangino will just milk the clock. He knows his team can have its cake and eat it, too, against a Cornhusker team that's turned to hash. (Can you imagine the sour grapes and rotten tomatoes from Jayhawk fans if KU loses? They’ll pepper him with negativity.)
Separating the wheat from the chaff, Mangino has done a great job beefing up his team’s talent level. His recruits definitely haven’t been chopped liver. Plus you have to admire his players' character – a no hot dogs on that team, or guys with big pieholes. He quickly takes care of any cheesy behavior with a tart comment or by getting in the offender’s grill.
Hopefully NU doesn’t get creamed Saturday.
