Jayhawks' struggles continue vs. Memphis

Jayhawks’ struggles continue vs. Memphis

LAWRENCE (TNS) — There is an old theory in football that losing in a high-scoring shootout is more palatable than losing 10-3 in dull and monotonous fashion. This is one of those theories, of course, that may be psychological hooey — something that only exists in the minds of football fans beaten down by years of losing. But after seasons of fielding anemic and impotent offenses — and years of teams that generally lost in boring fashion — it appears that Kansas could be a living test-ca

Kansas Jayhawks Fall Hard to Memphis, 55-23

Kansas Jayhawks Fall Hard to Memphis, 55-23

The Big 12 had some great football games this weekend, including a huge win for the Sooners over the Tennessee Volunteers. This recap is not about one of those games. This is about Kansas football. To be fair to the Jayhawks football team, (which life hasn’t been, so why should I?) Paxton Lynch put on a quarterback clinic in Lawrence and there wasn’t much any team could have done. Lynch doomed the Kansas football team Saturday night, as the Jayhawks dropped their second-straight home game, 55-2
