Kansas vs. Kansas State 2012: Jayhawk fans upset after 56-16 loss

Mike DiNovo-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

After a blowout loss to rival Kansas State, some Kansas fans believe their team gave up.

The Kansas Jayhawks suffered a 56-16 loss to the rival Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday, and there were few positives for KU fans to take from the game. Kansas was out-gained 475-388, and the Jayhawks turned the ball over five times. After such a demoralizing defeat, Jayhawk Nation is frustrated and looking for answers.

Kansas was competitive in the first half and trailed by just seven, 21-14, going into the locker room. However, the Jayhawks were dominated in the final 30 minutes, as Kansas State outscored KU, 35-2. In the gameday thread at Rock Chalk Talk, some fans believe Kansas players simply gave up. Commenter jayhawki said, "These guys have no heart at all. No gut check, no fight. (Head coach Charlie) Weis promised us different." Marty_ agreed, stating, "They have given up ... again."

Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist threw three interceptions, and the Jayhawks fumbled the ball away twice. On defense, Kansas allowed six rushing touchdowns and 346 yards on the ground.

After such a disheartening performance, fetch9 likely summed up the feelings of most Kansas fans: "Almost basketball season!"
