Robert Griffin III of Baylor (it sounds so fancy written that way, like he's a knight!) is set to have a big day against Kansas' terrible defense, but how big? Over at SB Nation's college football news hub, they're calling it a "matchup nightmare" for the Jayhawk defense. So, that big:
The reason Griffin's added mobility is such a concern is that Kansas has provided mobile quarterbacks that are inferior to Griffin in terms of overall capability, plenty to put on a highlight tape. Colin Klein, Tevin Washington and Jared Barnett are all slightly better than average quarterbacks with solid mobility. All three had a field day against Kansas and led their teams to a win.
So what will happen when a VERY good quarterback takes the field with an equal capability? It could spell trouble for the Jayhawks. Vic Shealy and the Kansas defense will have to draw up something special to slow down Griffin and the Baylor offense and that doesn't even touch on the problems that receiver Kendall Wright and running back Terrance Ganaway will present alongside Griffin.
Plain and simple this is a very good offense that because of their strengths presents a greater challenge to a bad Kansas defense than some of the teams that Kansas has played in previous weeks that boast better offensive statistics.
