Team Jayhawks receiver Daylon Charlot roars after scoring what proved to be the winning touchdown during the fourth quarter of the 2017 Spring Game on Saturday, April 15 at Memorial Stadium.

When Kansas football coach David Beaty makes a public appearance or fields questions from reporters, he often finds himself on the topics of KU’s quarterback competition and/or the program’s current star defensive linemen.

As head coach David Beaty, preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Dorance Armstrong Jr., and his Kansas teammates Daniel Wise, Joe Dineen and Hakeem Adeniji prepare to spend most of their Monday discussing the program at Big 12 Media Days, the Jayhawks’ Sept. 2 opener versus Southeast Missouri State — and the end of college football’s lengthy offseason — feels closer than ever.
