Les Miles is set to begin his second season leading the Kansas football program. Here are three bold predictions for the Jayhawks in 2020.
Despite a 3-9 season last year, Kansas football showed some signs of life that haven’t been seen in years. The win at Boston College was huge, and the game-winning field goal at home against Texas Tech was a lot of fun too. Then, there was near-win on the road against Texas, which easily would have made the season one of the best in a decade had the Jayhawks prevailed.
Despite having a relatively tough schedule next year, there’s still a lot to be excited about. Offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon will have had a lot of time to prepare, instead of jumping in right in the middle of the season.
Kansas is also returning a lot of talent at the skill positions, including running backs Pooka Williams. and Velton Gardner, as well as receivers Andrew Parchment, Stephon Robinson, and Kwamie Lassiter II.
The big question for the Jayhawks is who will succeed Carter Stanley at the quarterback position. The most prominent QB candidate is senior Thomas MacVittie who transferred from Mesa Community College last season. Considering Kansas is pretty solid at the receiver and running back positions, the offense really hinges on who takes the snaps for the Jayhawks.
Despite questions about the Jayhawks’ quarterback situation and whether or not fans are allowed to come to games, there really is a lot to be excited for. Here are three bold predictions for Kansas football during the 2020 season.
