Many are going to look at that 9-2 record for the Spiders this year and think that they actually have a chance of coming into the Phog and knocking off the Jayhawks. However, we look back at this record this year that Richmond has built up and fail to be impressed. There really aren’t any tremendous wins of note at that point in the season, and we think that the escape from James Madison and the 73-48 romp at the hands of Ohio in Athens don’t bode all that well. Kansas meanwhile, has been one of the more impressive teams in the nation this year, and it has rolled right through teams like Belmont (by 29), Colorado (by 36), San Jose State (by 13), and St. Louis (by 14) of late. The Spiders have an offense that might be able to do some damage, but in the end, this feels like a game that belongs to the Jayhawks by a relatively comfortable margin. If the Bobcats were able to slam the A-10 reps by 25 points, it’s any wonder what Rock Chalk is going to be able to do.
