“I think this year we could play nine (in rotation) — five perimeter players and four big guys,” Self said. “The (rules) meeting I just sat through ... there’s a chance we could play 11 this year because I think everybody is going to foul until they get used to the game. I think inside depth is going to be important.”

Kansas Jayhawks QB Michael Cummings unlikely to get sixth year of eligibility | FOX Sports

"I don't think we're going to be able to get that sixth year" of eligibility, coach David Beaty said Tuesday. "We don't know for sure, but it's not looking good right now."

Winless Jayhawks continue to work like a team on a roll |

“They really do believe that the season starts tomorrow,” Beaty said of his roster. “It's a unique (deal) to have a team that can continue to move forward like this team has done. I take my hat off to our staff, our strength staff and, really, to our kids. Our kids won't be discouraged and they know what the standard is. We're expecting to win games and we're not gonna let the past define us. We're going to continue to move forward and try to get closer to achieving that goal.”

KU QB Cozart remains out but may be used elsewhere upon return |

“I think that guy could do a lot of different things for you, for sure,” Beaty said of Cozart, who worked some at wide receiver last spring. “He can play on the defensive side. He can play on the offensive side. I know this: He's way too good of an athlete to be standing over there by me. So we're going to find a way to get our best players on the field, whether he's at quarterback, receiver, defensive back. Wherever we gotta be, we're going to find a way to get those best players on the field.”
