For the second time in a week a flight plan connecting Lawrence and Baton Rouge, La., sparked the interest of those following the ongoing Kansas football coaching search.
Usually boasting a booming tone that can be heard throughout Allen Fieldhouse, head coach Brandon Schneider sat comfortably and quiet on the Kansas bench as the Jayhawks jumped out to an early 18-point lead at the end of the first quarter. He wasn’t alone – the short pause of respect before any player takes a free throw loomed 49 times in Allen Fieldhouse on Tuesday night in the Jayhawks’ 70-58 win over Oral Roberts.
Any Kansas fan feeling nostalgic for the days of bowl victories and winning football under former coach Mark Mangino will have to keep on cherishing those memories.
