Benton Smith and Shane Jackson review an odd end to the first year of KU football under the direction of Les Miles.
The Jayhawks lost to No. 11 Baylor, 61-6, to end the season.
Following his Kansas football team’s 41-31 loss at Iowa State, head coach Les Miles explained why he wanted to go for it on 4th down in the fourth quarter, with his team down three.
“I thought the offense played spotty at times but really got in a groove late in the game,” Miles began.
KU trailed 34-31 with a little more than four minutes left when a Carter Stanley incompletion from the KU 37-yard line ended the drive.
“In the back half of the game I would have rather had the ball in our hands than their hands, and the opportunity to go for it on 4th down when your quarterback is hot,” Miles said. “It didn’t turn out.”
Kansas football coach Les Miles explained following his team’s 31-13 defeat at No. 25 Oklahoma State on Saturday what led to a change at quarterback in the third quarter.
“We were just looking for a spark. See if we could get something going,” Miles said. “We like Carter. Carter’s good.”
KU played Manny Miles at QB for the entire third quarter before returning to Stanley in the fourth. Les Miles said Stanley will remain KU’s starting quarterback moving forward.
Former Kansas football coach Mark Mangino returned to Lawrence this weekend so he could watch another one of his former players, Darrell Stuckey, join the Ring of Honor.
Mangino said Stuckey was one of the many Jayhawks who helped change the perception of KU football when he was the coach.
While speaking with reporters at halftime of KU’s homecoming win over Texas Tech, Mangino described the difficulties that come with turning around a program and the challenges of coaching at Kansas.
The Kansas football team broke its four-game losing streak Saturday night with a last-second victory over Texas Tech, in Lawrence.

Although Kansas football players and coaches left Saturday's 29-24 home loss to West Virginia discouraged by the result, KUsports.com's Benton Smith and Shane Jackson discuss why the showing actually was a promising sign for the Jayhawks.
KU fell behind by two touchdowns but managed to have at least a chance of winning the game on the final play of the fourth quarter.
Members of the Kansas football offense and defense square off, one on one, during Les Miles’ Jayhawk drill at Friday morning’s practice.
At least a few minutes during every contact practice are set aside for the drill, during which Miles calls out the names of each participant — one in blue for the offense and one in white for the defense — before each battle.
Miles first introduced the drill to the team in the spring.
