The Kansas Jayhawks have had a miserable year. That comes on the heels of another miserable year. To be a Kansas Jayhawk football fan is to know what it means to stick with a team through thick and thin, although it’s impossible to tell what even diehard fans would do if they were forced to sit through another season under Turner Gill. For now, the team is in last place in the latest Big 12 Power Rankings from ESPN’s David Ubben.
Ubben writes, “So close, Kansas. So close. The Jayhawks probably deserved this one, but the Bears offense broke through in the fourth quarter and showed why they entered the game as the nation’s No. 2 offense. They’re dangerous, and Kansas’ defense isn’t exactly loaded with talent. If Kansas couldn’t get a win in this one, I’m not sure where the next one’s coming. A trip to Kyle Field is up next, followed by what will be a heated, somber rivalry game against Missouri, likely the last for awhile. This is me making a sad face.”
