The Kansas Jayhawks won’t conduct a full scrimmage to culminate their spring practices.
Facing depth issues following some injuries, Kansas will not be hosting a full spring scrimmage, according to The Topeka Capital-Journal’s Matt Galloway.
As a replacement, the Jayhawks will be having a normal practice, with some team scrimmage simulations. The practice will be supplemented by other off-the-field activities.
In 2017, David Beaty’s team had a full scrimmage, and held a player draft before the event. They’ve also dabbled with the offense-versus-defense style.
The Kansas Jayhawks are looking to overcome a recent history of mediocrity, as they have not won more than three games in a season since 2009. The Jayhawks went 1-11 in 2017, their only win coming over Southeast Missouri State. Every one of the Jayhawks’ 11 losses came by a double-digit score, and they were shut out twice.
With their record last season and the reported reasoning for cancelling the spring game, it’s tough to see the Jayhawks improving too much this season, unless they get drastically healthier and improve over the span of a few short months.
