Kansas football coach Lance Leipold gets asked whether gap with Kansas State is closing
“I’m not going to judge right now if it’s closing. I’ll let some of you that have watched it over the years tell me if it’s closing,” Leipold said. “I like the direction of our program. I think Chris does a hell of a job. He’s got a fine staff. And he’s got some very talented players. But yeah again, the score doesn’t show that a gap’s been narrowed, so I really don’t — I can’t comment on it until we actually prove it.”

Everything Lance Leipold said after Kansas' loss to K-State
MANHATTAN — Kansas football dropped to 6-6 (3-6 Big 12) on Saturday night with a 47-27 loss to Kansas State on the road. Early mistakes put KU behind and the Jayhawks couldn’t recover after. A muffed punt led to a touchdown for K-State and a safety led to a nine-point swing in favor of the Wildcats. Overall, KU's special teams unit was outplayed by K-State's and it was a contributing factor to KU's defeat. KU fell behind 27-7 early on and was able to make it a nine point game but never got within one possession.
