Jayhawks have one more shot at bowl
Originally Published: November 18, 2003By Mark Wangrin | Special to ESPN.com
Saturday marks a date the Jayhawks have been pointing toward since quarterback Bill Whittemore went out with a shoulder injury at Kansas State on Oct. 25. Needing one win to become bowl eligible for the first time since 1995, KU has dropped three straight without Whittemore, to Texas A&M, Nebraska and Oklahoma State. They hoped to get Whittemore back this week, when the Jayhawks face league doormat Iowa State at home. The time has come. Whittemore has been cleared to play, but it's unclear whether he'll be back in the starting lineup or if the Jayhawks will continue to go with freshman Adam Barmann, who's playing on a sore ankle. After a four-touchdown debut against the Aggies, Barmann has been limited to mostly short passes and has been less effective.
