Kansas linebacker Joe Dineen Jr. calls out to the ref after pleading for a fumble call late in the game versus TCU, on Oct. 27, 2018.
During his four-plus years as a member of the ever-struggling Kansas football program, redshirt senior Joe Dineen has experienced his share of low moments and played in more sparsely attended home games than he would care to remember.
In a 2017 season filled with low points, no stretch felt quite as cavernous for the Kansas football team as a pair of back-to-back shutout blowouts on the road, at Iowa State and TCU. Joe Dineen, even after Kansas exorcised some of those old demons by beating TCU in Lawrence, said some players don’t want the lowest moments of 2017 creeping into their minds as they prepare.
