From the UDK:

Coach Ritch Price said hosting a home series in early February would be a roll of the dice with the weather.

Luck didn’t fall on his side as Price and the Jayhawks canceled this weekend’s series against the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State Wednesday morning.

The series will not be made up. This means Kansas will lose three games from its season if Price is unable to find another team willing to play on short notice.

“We’re actually looking at the possibility of trying to get on a bus and see if we can bus somewhere in Louisiana or Arkansas or someplace to play somebody on the weekend so we don’t go backwards,” Price said Tuesday afternoon, anticipating the weekend’s cancellation. “Now that we’ve had the chance to play, I’ve got to get these guys on the field even if it means altering our schedule.”

At this point, altering their schedule is all the Jayhawks can do in order to get at least a couple of games in this weekend. Fortunately for Kansas, Price has done schedules changes on the fly in the past. He has a master schedule of all the universities across the country, which he said should help him find a new opponent.

“I know there were some games canceled across the country,” Price said. “We’ve got a chance of somebody giving us a doubleheader one of those days.”

The Jayhawks are willing to do whatever necessary to play, within reason. Price said they wouldn’t go any further than a 10-hour bus ride to get to a make-up opponent.

Kansas may face a similar problem again next week as the team is slated to play another three-game series at home against North Dakota State starting Feb. 14.

I hope they can get a couple games in this weekend.
Win if you can. Survive if we let you.
