You’d think after nine straight losses, a football team would be ready to mail it in, but at Kansas, it’s much the opposite, heading into their Senior Night game with Iowa State, Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

You’d think after nine straight losses, a football team would be ready to mail it in, but at Kansas, it’s much the opposite, heading into their Senior Night game with Iowa State, Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Head coach Charlie Weis was fired up as he met with the media, during his weekly press conference, Tuesday afternoon. The tone was clear that he wants to win Saturday, not for the program, but for his seniors.

A win against the Cyclones would provide a wealth of memories for a senior class in which some started 5-0, before winning just six games after over the following three years. Since arriving at Kansas, they’ve played for three head coaches and have seen gone through a gauntlet of emotions.

“If all of a sudden, on Saturday night all those 900-game losing streaks and all that other stuff go by the boards, and you’re partying on the field after the game, that’s what you’re going to remember,” Weis said. “You’re going to remember the camaraderie with their teammates. You don’t focus on the bad things, you focus on the good things.”

It’s clear that after last week near upset of Texas Tech that ended with a heartbreaking double overtime loss, the Jayhawks believe that they can get one and with this being the final home game of the season, there is great urgency to win to create a lasting memory.

“I’ll be honest, it’s not about the program this week, it’s about the seniors, this week. I selfishly take the team out of this one. I would want that for the seniors and not the program” Weis said. “Obviously, every win is going to matter to the program, but I’m dead serious when I say I want to win this game very, very, very badly this week, but not because of me and not because of the program. I want to win it for those kids.”
