Kansas quarterback Thomas MacVittie pulls back to pass during practice on Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019.
Apparently the Kansas football team’s ongoing quarterback competition remains too close to call, a little more than a week before the Jayhawks’ 2020 debut. That doesn’t mean KU will try to play both Thomas MacVittie and Miles Kendrick when the season arrives, though.
Before preseason practices began on July 31, Kansas football coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon told the team’s quarterbacks they were about to embark on an open competition for the starting job. And so it remains at this juncture, with three weeks to go before the Jayhawks are scheduled to kick off their 10-game season. By Benton Smith

Eight practices into preseason camp, the Kansas football team’s quarterback competition continues to hover in a persistent status quo. Head coach Les Miles didn’t mention any real separation in the race between Thomas MacVittie and Carter Stanley following Saturday’s session at the team’s indoor practice facility. What’s more, Miles suggested he’s in no rush to pick the Jayhawks’ starting QB. By Benton Smith
