KU head coach David Beaty was the most energetic in the building at the Omni Dallas Hotel this afternoon and his enthusiasm for the Jayhawks shined throughout his news conference.
“As we began to build the blueprint for what we want our team to look like, we look no further than the people of our state. The example that they set for us every day,” said Beaty. “We’re working hard to earn their respect and their support one fan, one person, one stakeholder at a time. And, man, we’re lucky to have a great state with great supporters. Jayhawks love their football.”
“Like all the teams that are going to come before you today, we have high expectations, and with those high expectations are going to come high standards. The thing about high standards is they don’t set themselves, and those expectations, they certainly don’t meet themselves,” Beaty added.
“The first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to work hard. And the second thing we’re going to do is we’re going to earn everything we get,” said Beaty.
