I don't think Austin will start for a while, it's just far too brutal of a schedule coming up. Nebraska, Texas and OU would eat him alive. Now if it wasn't for that strech, the earliest I'd say he starts is Toledo, however I don't see Chizik starting him for one game then going back to Bret, and I don't see Chizik tossing him to the wolves. If Bret doesn't pull his head out of his *** though, I do see Austin having a lot more playing time during the games, and he could be starting come Missouri or Kansas State...
It's time to make a change, Bret just seems to have lost confidence in himself.
Regardless, Chizik knows what's best for the team and I won't question it. I wish the fans would do the same, leaving the boo-birds outside the stadium. It makes me sick to hear our fans booing a player/team/coach.
I thought Kansas St. Unfortunately, there may no longer be anything to play for at that point, except for the future. If Bret somehow recaptures the magic, and I hope he does, it will have to come against a brutal schedule.
