There was a little optimism coming into Kansas game against Coastal Carolina. The Jayhawks were coming off a win and were favored to get a home victory over a Sun Belt team. And after dropping a 12-7 decision to Coastal Carolina on Saturday night, it's unlikely that KU fans will feel optimistic again this season.
The game started off well enough for the Jayhawks. Pooka Williams, returning to action after a one game suspension, didn't bust any big runs on the first possession, but he was used as a decoy to spring Khalil Herbert for a 41 yard touchdown to make it 7-0.
