The 2019-20 Kansas football season came to an end last Saturday after the Jayhawks were defeated at home on senior day by the Baylor Bears. Despite the record, Kansas had some great moments this year.

Another year, another three-win season. Some things just don’t change when it comes to Kansas football, but maybe things will improve in the near future.

Despite the 3-9 record, this team showed a lot of fight in head coach Les Miles’ first season leading the Kansas Jayhawks. A three-win season isn’t terrible, considering the Jayhawks haven’t won more than three games in a season in over a decade.

Les Miles isn’t a miracle worker, but it’s realistic to expect at least four wins next season.

So far, Les Miles and the coaching staff have already got off to a good start on the 2020 recruiting class. According to Rivals, Kansas football has the thirtieth best class in the nation, which is incredible.

Still, it’s very early, and the class is more quantity than “quality,” but that’s how things are going to be for a while. Miles and his staff will have to work with what they have to rebuild Kansas, and that means turning three-star prospects into high caliber performers on the field.

The good thing is that the staff built a pretty good foundation this season, but it wasn’t without its faults. It seems like for every great moment this year there was an equally awful moment that came soon thereafter.

Here are the highs and lows from the 2019-20 Kansas football season.
