2017 Spring Game Saturday April 15 at 1 PM



  • I don’t know the date yet, but our spring game is only 3 months away. Let’s make plans now to attend the spring game and start this make or break season the right way. Even a modest amount of fan support goes a long way.

    How long has it been since you’ve walked down Jayhawk Boulevard on a spring day? I can’t think of a better way for a Jayhawk football fan to spend a Saturday afternoon in April. RCJH



  • I thought about going never been to the spring game.



  • @kjayhawks I watched the last one on television and wished I was at the game the whole time. It’s Jayhawk football in April. Nice. When KU played basketball in Korea, it was great to get an early start on the basketball season. By attending the spring game, I hope to get an early start on the 2017 football season. RCJH



  • I hope everyone will start this football season with me on April 15 in Memorial Stadium. I can’t think of a better way to spend a spring afternoon. We’ll get our first look at Peyton Bender, Daylon Charlot and many others. I like that Beaty structures the spring game like a regulation game and doesn’t use it as a final practice. Expectations amongst posters here vary on this season, but all things are possible this early. I can’t wait to see the pig skin fly around Memorial Stadium. RCJH



  • Now that spring break is almost over, the squad will get back to spring practice. Finally, we will get some news from the Lawrence Journal World about spring ball. I really enjoyed the first reports by Benton Smith and Tom Keegan. I’m keeping Saturday, April 15 open for a trip to Lawrence.



  • I think I’m going to try to make it myself. I want to see the QBs.



  • I don’t know who thought it was a good ideal to schedule the spring game for Easter weekend. But, I’m going to attend just to be at the start of our breakout season. RCJH



  • 3-4 wins would meet my expectations, less is unacceptable, more would be fantastic. Being bowl eligible this year would be a wet dream.



  • @stoptheflop Spring game has historically been mid-April and since Easter moves around between April and March, it occasionally happens Easter weekend.





  • I like Coach Beaty’s idea of the player draft. Peyton Bender on team Jayhawks sure seems to be paired with our best receivers, Sims, Gonzalez and Charlot. But, Bender will face our better defenders. Ninety percent of my focus today will be on the quarterback play. We have the athletes. We have all the components we need to win. We just need a steady, consistent QB, who doesn’t commit TO’s that lead to easy points for our opponent. This is going to be really fun to watch. RCJH



  • @stoptheflop if u can’t go it’s on ESPN 3 or cox 22



  • Feeling like it might rain here.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I’ve already got it set to record. My wife and I have decided to forgo a couple of Easter events and go to the game. Jeez, I wish the weather was better.



  • @stoptheflop

    Hope you have fun, I’ll be inside hiding from the weather. If possible maybe post some thoughts/updates?



  • @BShark you watching! Sims, charlot, lee, both qbs decent



  • Harrell w/great catch! Great throws. Lee killed schadler-kid from hesston

  • I didn’t catch the beginning of the broadcast, why didn’t Quiv play today?

    Also, I think it’s telling about the QB situation that Bender was paired up with Sims and Charlot and what appeared to be mostly the 1’s on offense. I think Bender is going to be the QB next season. Bender made some great throws today that Stanley just isn’t capable of making because of his arm strength. I was also impressed with the secondary.

    Based on today, I really wouldn’t be too shocked to see KU get to 6-6. 3-0 in nonconference which will end the road losing streak and the bottom of the Big 12 is weak enough for KU to get 3 more wins. It may not happen this year, but this team as is can get to a bowl game in 2017.



  • @Texas-Hawk-10 I agree, besides the secondary but its also hard to tell with the teams split up in a draft manor and not a first and second team manor. I think we should do the spring game like other schools and make the first team go against the second team so maybe they can score and have excitement, it was a boring game IMO outside of about 6 plays.
