Linebacker Takes Another Hit

Jacoby Thomas is no longer a Kansas Jayhawk.  Thomas was dismissed from the team yesterday due to academic standing and his loss presents another blow to a Kansas linebacker corps already thin due to injury and other circumstances.

Again, Drew Dudley, Justin Springer and Steven Johnson appear to be the starters, but beyond that Kansas is starting to run thin on options.  Jacoby was likely a situational player at best, but the loss still hurts at a position that can't afford many more.  

The move appears to be permanent and was definitely a tough one to swallow.
