David Beaty has brought KU Football hope, determination, and some good recruiting. While the Jayhawks have yet to step out of the cellar in terms of regular season play, the fans are feeling the shift towards better days.

There is a storm brewing in Lawrence. No, it is not like the typical Midwest thunderstorms you see across the corn and wheat fields. Head coach David Beaty is bringing a storm to the Kansas Jayhawks, the type that can turn around an entire football program. The fans are starting to feel it as well as they continue to support and get ready to return to Lawrence for some KU Football.

To be honest, it is unlike anything I have ever seen happen for the KU Football program. Last season the Jayhawks were 2-10 with the best highlight being the overtime win against Texas, yet it still seems the feelings toward the progress of the program is unanimously positive. Most of the feelings probably stem from the waves of new recruits.

With new coaching pickups such as Tony Hull and Doug Meacham, the recruiting network of the Jayhawks has had unbounded expansion. Not only do Hull and Meacham add recruiting perks, but they also add some much needed coaching experience to the offense. Jayhawk fans can look forward to seeing Dorance Armstrong next season along with Mike Lee and Steven Sims.

The hype for this next season is unbounded and felt by fans around Lawrence. Beaty has got the Jayhawks ready for their best season since 2009. I am already getting ready to buy my season tickets and really think this will be a fun season for Kansas football.

With the overtime win against Texas last season, everything has been looking up for the Jayhawks. They’ll get another crack at Texas again this season and hopefully can start to take down other weaker Big 12 opponents like Iowa State.

Jayhawk fans, get your season tickets now! The Jayhawks are forming a turnaround that is unmatched to anything this football program has seen. Along with the certain improvement next season, Memorial Stadium renovations should be coming soon and be announced during a regular season game.

Those renovations will hopefully be the mojo that gets KU football turned around for good. It’s been a long time running, but Jayhawk fans are ready! Rock Chalk!
