After going 2-10 last season, the KU Football team is on the verge of opening up a more hopeful campaign next season. All these new additions have got many Jayhawk fans beaming with hope towards better days.

For fans of the Kansas Jayhawks, it has been a tough several seasons when it comes to watching the football program. After embarking on an awful stint with Ted Gilles and Charlie Weis, the Jayhawks have hopefully found their foundation to build on in head coach David Beaty.

Beaty has made more progress in one offseason than the Jayhawks have made since 2009. Jayhawk fans should be pretty confident in the direction this program is going.

With that said, does a team that went 2-10 last season really have a chance at much improvement next season? The answer is of course!

With all of these new pickups, like surprise pickup five star wide receiver Devonta Jason, it appears that KU football is heading towards better days. The Jayhawks have gotten new life with filled positions and have built up their coaching staff as well. Offensive coordinator Doug Meacham fills a major hole.

Back in 2016, Beaty would call the offense and take care of head coaching duties. Not to say Beaty has bad offensive experience, but the combination of the two jobs seemed cumbersome at times.

Now with the much needed breathing room, Beaty should be able to actually coach. With all these improvements and hope you would think there would be some REALLY bold predictions out there. Lucky for you, I have five of my own predictions from bold, bolder to boldest.
