Kansas Football: University President Gives Statement After Embarrassing Loss

The Kansas football program continues to fight for relevancy. After a miserable 1-11 campaign last season, the Jayhawks got off to another rough start by losing to Nicholls State in the season opener.

It was the second time that David Beaty has led his team to defeat against an FCS program.

The team has been so bad, in fact, that university president Jeff Long has had to step in to issue a statement.

“We all expected a different outcome Saturday but I continue to support our student-athletes and coaches and ask all Jayhawks to do the same. Our evaluation of the program is on-going without a predetermined timeline,” Long wrote.

Under Beaty, the Jayhawks are a miserable 3-34.

If things don’t get better, it’s going to be time for the Jayhawks to find a new head coach. As one of the Big 12’s bottom-dwellers, the Jayhawks have been a doormat and laughing stock to the conference.

Next up for the Jayhawks is another losable game on Saturday, Sept. 8 against Central Michigan. Kickoff between the Jayhawks and Chippewas is set for 3:00 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
