There were not many bright spots in Kansas football’s brutal 62-9 loss at Oklahoma today. It was a deflating loss, to say the least.
This 2020 Kansas football team has had a rough season. The 0-7 Jayhawks got stomped this afternoon on the road at Oklahoma, and it’s hard to come away with too many positives. To put it simply, Kansas has a long way to go under head coach Les Miles.
KU quarterback Jalon Daniels struggled to do anything against the Sooner defense. He threw for 115 yards and pair of interceptions. It’s also important to know that the Jayhawk offensive line gave up a whopping nine sacks on the day. The Kansas ground attack was equally ineffective, only getting 95 yards.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Jayhawks obviously could not stop the Sooner offense led by quarterback Spencer Rattler and running back Rhamondre Stevenson. Rattler went for 212 yards and a touchdown, while Stevenson ran for over 100 yards on the day in addition to a pair of touchdowns.
At this point, it’s extremely unlikely that the Jayhawks get a win this season. Kansas thankfully has a bye week next week before taking on Texas at home, TCU at home, and then Texas Tech on the road. With the way things are going, the Jayhawks will be lucky to beat the spread against any of these opponents.
Now, for some positivity.
About the only good thing that will come out of this season is the experience that the younger players like Jalon Daniels and Daniel Hishaw Jr. are getting. Hopefully playing these young guys will pay dividends in the near future, because this season has been nothing short of a nightmare.
Let’s hope that Kansas can take advantage of this bye week and prepare for the Texas Longhorns. Nobody thinks the Jayhawks will win, and if they can compete, that would probably be good enough for most Kansas football fans this season.
