Fresh start: Jayhawks have high hopes for Big 12 |

“We travel up to Ames (Iowa) next weekend, and we’ve got a great opportunity to start Big 12 1-0,” always-sunny senior co-captain Ben Goodman said after the Rutgers loss. “We just gotta continue to prepare well and just trust our coaches and execute.”

The Day After: In a rut at Rutgers | Tale of the Tait |

There's no way — or reason — to sugar coat things at this point, nor has anyone I know been doing that throughout the offseason and first few games of the 2015 schedule. This Kansas team is severely overmatched at just about every position and all of the hard work and hard and effort and determination is not going to make up for that. If it could, Kansas would have won Saturday's game against a bad Rutgers team that gave the Jayhawks every opportunity to not only hang around but also steal momentum and find a way to win the game. It never happened. Call it inexperience — on the sideline and on the field — call it poor execution or call it reality. Either way, this team, though continuing to fight and work every day, is in for some rough weeks now that Big 12 play has arrived.
