The Jayhawks’ starting quarterback in their season opener, Thomas MacVittie, had his last name misspelled on the back of his jersey Saturday night versus Coastal Carolina. Perhaps the “MacVitte” on his shoulders was an omen that the Kansas football team would run into some issues at QB.
The raw emotions of a discouraging loss in the season’s opener couldn’t be masked by Kansas senior receiver Andrew Parchment late Saturday night.
Les Miles’ quarterback secret lasted about as long as possible, all the way up to a few minutes before his Kansas football team made its season debut Saturday night, when senior Thomas MacVittie was finally announced as the starter in KU's eventual 38-23 loss to Coastal Carolina.
The first snap of the 2020 Kansas football season was taken by KU senior Thomas MacVittie at 9:21 p.m. on Saturday night at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium and it led to a routine completion to Takulve Williams for no gain.
