Morgantown, W.V. — The Kansas defense played with anger, born of an insult, one delivered by the opposing coach no less. The Jayhawks played as if they were tired of being the butt of jokes, fed up with not getting credit for the improvements they have made, ready to fight back and fight hard. The defense did its part Saturday in a 38-22 loss to West Virginia at Milan Puskar Stadium, where 57,419 watched a more competitive game than they imagined, but little else went right for the Jayhawks (2-5 overall, 0-3 in the Big 12).
