After an 0-3 start in non-conference play, head coach David Beaty and the Kansas football team embark on their first Big 12 contest together at Iowa State, Saturday, Oct. 3, at Jack Trice Stadium. Kickoff against the Cyclones is slated for 11 a.m., and can be seen on Fox Sports Net.
“I think one of the big things is he taught me that there is always another level to push to,” Beaty recalled. “He always did a great job of guarding against complacency. We paid such attention to detail with everything we did as players and as coaches. He made me a better coach because I really had to focus all day every day on everything to make sure I was efficient for our players and our team.”
"This week, Deondre Ford's gonna be out," Beaty said. "So we're back to where we finished that (Rutgers) game with Montell starting and then Ryan Willis will be the guy who needs to get ready for the back-up spot. And those guys will continue to compete this week. We're gonna always compete, all the way through the walk-through. They're no different than the rest of our team."
Kansas head coach David Beaty talked about what he learned under former head coach Mark Mangino and much more during his Big 12 conference call.
"The biggest difference is always learning the terminology of the game," he said of the jump from the junior college ranks to the Big 12. "Pretty much just picking up this offense, and trying to evolve more and more as a quarterback. That's pretty much it. I feel the game feel for me is pretty much the same. I don't really do anything different, I just go out and do what I do."
Kansas football will host Baylor on Saturday, Oct. 10, with an 11 a.m., kick time and live broadcast on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Big 12 Conference announced on Monday.
With professional football in full swing at the conclusion of the third week of games in the National Football League Sunday, 12 Jayhawks continue making their mark at the game's highest level.
This is a ridiculous run that deserves proper recognition. A 12th consecutive championship would be an appropriate time for college basketball fans, the casual and devoted, to acknowledge the challenges Self has overcome for more than a decade.
Something or someone should have knocked Kansas from its throne by now because that’s what usually happens in sports. An unexpected injury. The rise of another program. Suspensions in key stretches. Bad luck. A bad night, week or month. Something.
Yet Kansas remained on top.
