The story is well known to those that follow and care about Kansas football. The Jayhawks road losing streak has surpassed six years.
That’s the main storyline that will be the main narrative head coach David Beaty and his team will have to listen to until the program notches its first road victory since a win at UTEP on September 12, 2009. Their first opportunity for that in the 2015 season comes Saturday at Rutgers. Still, that storyline is mainly for those in the business of telling them rather than those who live it.
“It's not something that I really have given too much thought to until I said it just a second ago,” Beaty said during his weekly media session, Tuesday. “I read it on Twitter this morning. It's in your face every now and then because of Twitter and things like that when we're recruiting. That's one of those things that I don't think our kids really think a whole lot about that either. We don't allow them to.”
“That has nothing to do with them, it really doesn't,” Beaty continued “If it was a 30-game win streak or 30-game lose streak, you'd like to be on the other side of it, but at the end of the day it doesn't matter. What happens that day is what's going to matter.”
