It’s been a frustrating stretch of seasons for senior wide receiver Steven Sims and the Kansas Jayhawks football team, to put it mildly.
Sims has been on campus for three seasons and played in 34 games. Over that stretch, the Jayhawks are 3-31. While, sure, one of those games was a monumental win against the Texas Longhorns, losing 31 games in three years can’t feel good.
Bear in mind, this isn’t Sims’ fault — he’s been one of the Jayhawks’ best offensive weapons. Last year as a junior, he hauled in 59 catches for 839 yards and 6 touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories.
But it’s understandable that he and the rest of his Kansas teammates are fed up with losing. Sims said as much in an interview Wednesday with Scott Chasen of KUSports.com. The wideout said the Jayhawks have learned their lesson from last season and are ready to turn things around in 2018.
“We all took it as another learning experience, but we’re tired of losing,” Sims said. “Everybody’s coming to work competitive. We have to turn it around this year, this has to be the season.”
Kansas’ spring game will take place on Saturday, April 28, at 1 p.m. CT.
