Kansas football coach Les Miles hasn’t minded sending some of the program’s youngest athletes onto the field this season, but Saturday’s home loss to TCU featured an even greater reliance on inexperienced players than usual, with the Jayhawks starting three true freshmen on the offensive line.
Center Garrett Jones and right tackle Bryce Cabeldue both made their first career starts, while Armaj Adams-Reed, who also started at right guard in KU’s home loss to Iowa State, made his second.
“Obviously it was a little scary,” Cabeldue told reporters this week of his state of mind entering his first game in a primary role. “I was a little anxious. But I was just happy to be there, happy to be able to contribute to the team.”
