Kansas’ Terrible Fake Punt Backfires
Kansas is fighting for respectability after going 1-11 last season but plays like a horrible fake punt against Texas Tech on Saturday certainly won’t help.
Tied with the Red Raiders at 10 and facing 4th and 13 and KU’s own 16 yard line in the second quarter, punter Trevor Pardula took off running in an attempt to move the chains. Instead, he was thrown out of bounds for no gain and Texas Tech scored a touchdown two players later.
It appears Pardula made the decision to fake the punt on his own based on what he thought he saw from Texas Tech’s return team instead of a called fake.
Either way, as head coach Charlie Weis would say, it was a “pile of crap.”
