Kansas Jayhawks are 5-0 Again After 13 Years

The University of Kansas football team earned new respect from their head coach defeating other teams to achieve a 5-0 record for the first time since 2009.

      The Kansas Jayhawks have not had a better season for 13 years. With the team training non-stop at their home stadium, David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, the coach hopes to have an outstanding season.

      Coach Lance Leipold is a six-time NCAA Division III national champion and the fastest coach to get 100 career wins ever in NCAA history. This is Leipold’s second year at Kansas. He is the 41st head coach in Kansas football history. 

      Coach Leipold is from Jefferson, Wisconsin, and served as head coach at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater from 2007-2014. From 2015-2020 he served as head coach for the University of Buffalo.

      This coach believes that rushing the ball is better than passing the ball to the wide receivers. At Coach Leipold’s last school, the ball was run 43.1 percent of the time whereas the ball was thrown 22.4 percent of the time. He keeps making the Jayhawks win, so the philosophy must work.

      Because of an outstanding season from Kansas so far, many predict that the Jayhawks will at least go 8-4. According to Luke Grimm a Kansas wide receiver, the team has been working hard for this season and has wanted more than ever.

      The Kansas Jayhawks’ 5-0 win streak seems to be popular as of right now, a McAuliffe International 8th grade student, Finn Roberts quotes “I think the Jayhawks could pull off the 5-0 but they haven’t done that in the past eight years. It would be very impressive.”
