The Day After: Waived by the Wheat Shockers | Tale of the Tait |

Wichita State's veterans outplayed the Jayhawks in just about every way and even the KU players said after the game in the locker room that they thought the Shockers wanted it more. That's a tough pill for any team to swallow and was the most obvious reason why the Jayhawks' season ended in the Round of 32 for the second year in a row.

“There’s gonna be a high premium on focusing on ourselves,” Beaty said. “The way we’re gonna get better faster is by being the most disciplined team in the country and being a smart football team. You’re gonna see a ton of ball-security drills. And there’ll be a ton of time put into the hidden third of the game, which is special teams. We feel like if we do those things well, we give ourselves an advantage and a chance to get better faster.”

The Past, Present, and Future of Kansas Jayhawks Quarterbacks

It is certainly difficult to develop a quarterback. There are many things that go into finding a true leader and contributor at the quarterback position. So, while recruiting as most definitely been a struggle at that position, the most diehard KU fan will always continue to draw hope from the future.
