The 2012 Kansas University football season was short on wins but long on drama. Some of the top stories of the season were, clockwise from top left: The dismissal of several players, including running back Darrian Miller; the team’s classroom success under new coach Charlie Weis; the hiring of Dave Campo as defensive coordinator; tributes to Don Fambrough; the euphoria of a season-opening win over South Dakota State; the excellence of running back James Sims; a losing streak that hit 11 games with the season-finale at West Virginia; a bumper crop of juco standouts; the surprise departure of defensive back Tyler Patmon; and, at center, the monster season by the Denver Broncos’ Chris Harris.
While the 2012 Kansas University football season delivered little more than losses, there were more than a few memorable things that took place — good and bad — during coach Charlie Weis’ first season in charge of the Jayhawks. By Matt Tait
