LAWRENCE, Kan. —
Not this season.
Weis asked fans to stay, and promised them that the team would fight for 60 minutes, and they have a victory along with three close losses at Memorial Stadium.
“When a team fights for 60 minutes, I think you can respect that,” Weis said. “They have certainly earned my respect.”
Senior wide receiver Kale Pick credited Weis and his staff with bringing a competitive spirit. Before, he said the Jayhawks were stuck in an ‘Oh, here we go again’ attitude when it came to close games. They just learned to assume they would lose, but not with Weis.
The team goes into games now expecting to win.
That’s part of what makes this season so frustrating.
“I don’t think I remember a team that has had as many close losses and tough losses as we have had that is five loses that have come down to the last minutes or seconds,” Pick said.
