Kansas head football coach David Beaty met with the media Tuesday afternoon in Mrkonic Auditorium inside the Anderson Family Football Complex to discuss the Jayhawks' upcoming Big 12 matchup at No. 11/8 Baylor, Saturday, October 15, inside McLane Stadium.
Willis described Tuesday the key takeaway from that particular dialogue with KU’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach: "I should’ve got down to my under route. (I) threw into single high, threw into the middle — which is a big no-no. Tried taking a shot and the other team capitalized off it. Can’t make those mistakes. I’ve gotta be better."
Baylor, whose toughest games figure to come after October -- TCU, at Oklahoma, at West Virginia -- appears to have its entire offensive arsenal coming together.
"After last year, our whole staff, we take it personal where we finish in specific areas because your stats are who you are. You can't run from them. That's who you are. Statistically your production lies in the stats," said Kansas head football coach David Beaty.
Thanks to forcing three interceptions and recovering a fumble, Kansas had the win in its sights before a missed field goal as time expired. Now against Baylor, it’s about finding a delicate balance of stopping the pass but holding strong in the trenches. Players like senior safety Fish Smithson will be integral for that.

Dating back to 2012, Self has kicked off the past five seasons with similar comments about the Jayhawks in the early going. And all the team has done during that time is average 29 victories per season and keep alive the streak of consecutive Big 12 titles, which sits at 12 heading into the upcoming season.
"One guy I think has made a big step up is Lagerald Vick," Fraschilla said of KU’s sophomore guard from Memphis. "What I saw from Frank Mason, Devonté Graham and Landen Lucas is what I expected, veterans who know the Kansas system, but Lagerald Vick’s improvement stood out to me during the two practices I saw," Fraschilla added.
