Beaty is excited about this team and this season. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. But he has a job to do. And that job is to get the Jayhawks prepared to beat Rhode Island. That’s why he’s been calling Saturday’s 6 p.m. season opener at Memorial Stadium the most important game in the program’s history for months. And that’s why he chooses to focus on the minutiae of Saturday’s game plan instead of stepping back and smiling about the progress they’ve made and dreaming about the places they’re headed.
