Gilbert has serious speed, Kansas has completely given up on football, and the fade is back, are a couple things we learn in this week's edition of What We Learned.

Many thanks to our guest this week!

Gary England was the Chief Meteorologist News 9 in Oklahoma City for over 40 years. There's only one... Gary England

keeping my fingers crossed this is true for Baylor!

Thoughts from the CRFF staff

Robert Whetsell
  • Gundy and Company are obviously very comfortable with 50% completion rates.
  • Charlie Weis obviously knows something about somebody. Either that or Kansas doesn't give a shit about football.
Taylor York
  • Texas Tech was way way overrated! Lost 3 straight. OU, OSU, and KSU. Last two at home!
  • Safeties are a thing right now in the Big 12.
Cory Treece
  • Glidden could be a big time play-maker in a critical situation going forward. It's also quite impressive how far he bounced off the turf on that one catch.
Hatco Cowboy
  • OU, as terrible as they looked, exposed weaknesses within the Baylor offense. Glenn Spencer should be doing jumping cartwheels in his office.
  • Oklahoma State and Texas may have huge Big 12 title implications...but the Pokes should roll in Austin.
  • The Cowboy offense exhausted all of its energy to defeat Texas Tech...and didn't even need any to thwart Kansas.
  • And lastly, the de facto Big 12 title game will most likely feature Baylor....when they travel to Stillwater.
Steve Dodson
  • Kansas football is bad for ratings, but good for insomnia. Zzzzzz
Evan G. Jones
  • Either Baylor is the real deal or OU is a lot worse than we think.
  • Jeremy Smith's true roll is RB 1B.
  • OSU's offense seems to play to the level of the competition. The D doesn't, they own always.
  • We shouldn't expect anymore out of Chelf than what we've been getting. 50-ish percent completion, 200-ish yards, and a couple picks. That's who he is.
  • Lastly, it's time to stop wishing our offense was better, or we had a NFL QB, etc... We are 8-1 and charging for a Big 12 title. It's time to be on board with what's going on and support.
Tyler Ames
  • I, for one, am extremely glad we got K-State early in the year. OU is gonna have a tough time leaving Manhattan with a W.
Cade Webb
  • KU football is the worst Big 12 program in any sport.
  • Even when the offense sputters, can't complain about 42 points.
  • Texas is vulnerable
  • OU still sucks. We will beat them by 20. At least.
  • Baylor is, um, scary... but I still really don't know.
  • K-State is getting good. Glad we played them early.
Graham Coffelt
  • According to commentators, David Glidden is comparable to Wes Welker?!
  • I can actually be bored at a game.
Chris Ross
  • Barry Sanders was a man amongst boys, and a true legend. Okay, I already knew that, but seeing him honored at halftime was amazing!
  • Josh Heupel may be the worst Offensive Coordinator in the Big 12.
  • Baylor is the BCS' worst nightmare. They're an undefeated AQ team, but no one knows what to make of them and it's week 12.
  • The only thing we truly know about Baylor is they are fast. Very, very fast.
  • Kansas is as bad as advertised, maybe even a little worse.

Best of Twitter: #CRFFWhatWeLearned

Yes, Yes we can.

Smith actually had a great TD run

Depends on if Ash is back, I bet Case plays though.

Just how bad is KU football?


Against West Virginia anyway

Thankfully, it won't be a problem the rest of the year

How much of this is from taking more shots down field?

It's going to be a good month of football!

Yes, and the diamond formation as well!
