A law professor at the University of Kansas suggested on Twitter that his university should cut its Division I football program, calling it “an enormous money loser” and mentioning the likelihood of “life-altering injuries.”

“What’s the argument for continuing KU football (serious question)?” Corey Rayburn Yung rhetorically asked Sunday.

Yung went on to suggest the university could leave the Big XII Conference if the conference wanted them to keep fielding a football team.

Long considered a “basketball school,” Kansas has had one of the poorest-performing football programs among major conference teams for years. The Jayhawks have gone 15-81 over the last eight seasons, never winning more than three games in a year, and even finishing 0-12 in 2015.

Kansas lost to FCS opponent Nicholls State in the 2018 season opener last weekend, 26-23 in overtime.
