Kansas coach Turner Gill talks to reporters following the Jayhawks' 59-21 loss to Kansas State on Oct. 22, 2011.
It was only a single play, but it might have been the one that shifted the momentum to Kansas State for good in its 59-21 victory over Kansas on Saturday.
Members of Kansas State’s marching band — and several thousand purple-clad fans standing in the southeast stands of Memorial Stadium — chanted “Just like last year” on Saturday afternoon as the clock expired in the Wildcats’ 59-21 football victory over rival Kansas University.
One week after being carted off the field with a scary neck injury that left him temporarily unable to move his arms and legs, senior center Jeremiah Hatch started Saturday's loss to K-State at his regular position.
Discouraged by yet another lopsided loss by the Kansas University football team, Kansas University athletic director Sheahon Zenger spoke briefly after Saturday's 59-21 loss to in-state rival Kansas State at Memorial Stadium.
Want to know just how wide the gap is between the football programs at Kansas University and Kansas State? Look no further than the two-minute sequence that spanned the end of the first half and the beginning of the second on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
Sheahon Zenger, this is your mission: Find a way to get the Kansas University athletic department out of the financial pressure your predecessor, Lew Perkins, put it in, in part because he believed in giving coaches everything they needed to succeed with little regard for how much it cost.
