Beaty doesn’t expect his Jayhawks (1-0) to have an easy time on offense or defense this coming Saturday, when Ohio visits Lawrence — even if the Bobcats (0-1) opened their season with a 56-54, triple-overtime loss to Texas State. He hopes KU’s coaches and players show a greater attention to detail in the days leading up to the team’s first game against an FBS opponent.
Days after admitting he didn’t even want to release a two-deep before the Jayhawks faced Rhode Island, KU’s starting lineup against the Rams featured eight starters not listed on the first team on the week’s depth chart.
2015 was the Jayhawks’ first winless football season since 1954, and it extended the program’s losing streak to 15 games. But David Beaty, the relentlessly optimistic 45-year-old coach who took on the job in December 2014, detected glints of promise. He said he had even learned a few things.
“I think all our coaches agree we’ve got a pretty good deal going,” he said. “There’s no question that if the move is made it would be primarily to benefit football and we know football drives the bus in so many ways. We understand that and respect that, but we kind of like what we’ve got going now.”
Sophomore Grace Hagan sent in the game-winner and added an assist as she helped the Kansas Jayhawks dispatch of the Valparaiso Crusaders, 2-1, Sunday morning at Hibner Stadium.

No one really seems to know exactly what targeting means, and the primary case in any argument among fans on any particular call usually boils down to which team you happen to root for. But it's partly defined by the NCAA as using the shoulder to hit the head or neck area of a receiver who's in the middle of catching a pass.
During Saturday’s opener against Kent State, Julius added yet another item to his increasing war chest of highlights, as he raced down on kick coverage to deliver an already legendary hit.
There might not be any Lambeau Leaps and the tundra might not be frozen just yet, but football is back and College GameDay comes to you from Green Bay. And the signs were out in force.
