Jayhawks searching for starting linebackers

Published Aug. 18, 2015 10:21 p.m. ET

In the interest of identifying the gap between first- and second-team linebackers at the midway point of preseason camp, Kansas University linebackers coach Kevin Kane has come up with an additional competition for his group this week.

Instead of just handing out reps to everyone, critiquing missteps and praising memorable moments, Kane is going to start tracking them all. And he’s going to post them on the wall in the meeting room for everyone to see.

In one column will be the good plays. In the other will be the bad plays. No gray area. No room for interpretation.

“It turns into a pretty good competition,” Kane said Monday prior to the 11th practice of camp. “When you post it up every day, they’ll start coming into your office saying, ‘Hey, that’s not right."


Right or not, Kane said the point of the exercise was to create more accountability. And it won’t be something that’s done live. Coaches will review the film after each practice and keep score that way.
