‘Embarrassing’ road trip

The more things change, the more they stay the same for the Kansas University football team, which, once again, found itself looking like a sumo wrestler in a sand volleyball match during Saturday’s 41-3 loss to Duke at Wallace Wade Stadium.

As often has been the case during the past few seasons, the Jayhawks (1-1) looked punchless on offense and consistently put their defense onto the field not only with the hope of trying to stop an opponent but also, in a very real way, burdened with the responsibility of finding a way to score.

It never happened. Instead, the Jayhawks, under the direction of new offensive coordinator John Reagan and new quarterback Montell Cozart (11-of-27 passing, 89 yards, 2 interceptions) looked an awful lot like the Jayhawks of old, struggling to three-and-out after three-and-out on offense and watching the Blue Devils (3-0) rack up 511 yards, 41 points, 20 completions and a 9.2 yards-per-carry average against the overworked Kansas defense.

In other words, wash, rinse and repeat.
