Kansas football hasn’t won a game since defeating Southeast Missouri State in Week 1 last September.
There won’t be any Jayhawks on the winning side of a football game next Saturday at Memorial Stadium either.
According to KWCH 12 News, Kansas coach David Beaty is replacing the team’s spring football game with an open practice, citing an insufficient amount of linemen for a full scrimmage.
Beaty said that four players “were out for the spring with surgeries already” and that he didn’t feel as if several others were in shape to play a full scrimmage, per the report. Kansas still has five practices left on its spring schedule.
The news comes just two weeks after Kansas released its spring roster with several omissions. Defensive lineman Isaiah Bean and 2017 starting center Mesa Ribordy were both absent from the roster due to medical reasons.
The open practice will take place at Memorial Stadium on KU’s campus in Lawrence, Kan. at 1 p.m. CT on April 28 — the same date and time which the spring game was originally set for. The festivities that were scheduled around the spring game will still occur as scheduled starting at 10 a.m. CT, per the report.
