    Since 2005, Kansas has started 10, 9, 9, 12, 11, 10, 7, 9, 5, 4 and 4 Whites.

    The 2016 Kansas Jayhawks look to start 6 Whites

    Offense:
    QB Ryan Willis (in a battle with Montell Cozart)
    LT Jordan Shelley-Smith
    LG Jacob Bragg
    C Joe Gibson
    TE Ben Johnson

    Defense:
    LB Joe Dineen

    Kansas University is located in Lawrence, KS which is 82.0% White and 4.7% black according to the 2010 US Census.

    The projected number of White starters on Kansas' football team is 6/22 which is 27.3%.

    This means that White football players are underrepresented by 54.7 percentage points (82.0% - 27.3%) given the geographic location of the University.

    Willis should easily be the starter if healthy.

    Do you guys remember when Kansas was talented, and fairly White, under Mark Mangino? It was a blast watching RB Jake Sharp and WR Kerry Meier. The QB was pretty good too but I can't remember his name.

    Oh well, those years feel like a lifetime ago compared to these awful Caste Squads.

    Todd reesing was the qb during the
    Mangino era. They were a lot of fun to watch back then.

    How quickly a program can turn for the worse. For a few years KU was respectable and in correlation they had more white guys and recruited their geographic location better. Turner Gill comes in and set this program back to the dark ages, literally. No idea who's running the show now but it's clear to see why KU is a basketball school only with the boneheads in charge of the football program.

    Yep Freethinker and Leonardfan, it does seem like a long time ago. 2008 was a pretty fun year for watching them on TV. I can remember getting excited, yelling, and even jumping up and down when Sharp was outrunning "the real affletes" and scoring TDs. I can't tell you the last time I did that while watching a college game. :hmmm:

    Ryan Willis has now been named the starter. They should of went with him since the beginning of the season.
