Kansas hits (embarrassing) milestone with loss to Coastal Carolina
Remember when there was some excitement regarding the Kansas football program when it hired Les Miles before the 2019 season? Ah, how so much has changed in such a short time.
Kansas was back on the field on Saturday night, hosting Coastal Carolina out of the Sun Belt. Things did not go well for the Mad Hatter and the Jayhawks, who were essentially laughed off the field by the Chanticleers in the season opener.
Coastal Carolina posted a 38-23 road victory over Kansas on Saturday night, building a first half lead of 28-0 which proved to be insurmountable for the Jayhawks. That loss for Kansas meant the program hit an embarrassing milestone.
Saturday’s defeat marked the 100 loss for Kansas since the 2010 season. It’s the most for any program in that span at the FBS level. Max Olson of The Athletic had the stat.
Ohio State has 98 losses since 1983. https://t.co/K8OfxUZSSF

To put that into perspective, Jason Starrett of The Athletic points out that Ohio State has lost 98 games since the 1983 season. Obviously Kansas and Ohio State are nowhere near the same level of program, but to think the Buckeyes haven’t acquired 100 losses with nearly 30 additional years of reference is truly incredible.
The 2010s were a rough decade for the Jayhawks. The 2020s aren’t off to a much better start.
