The Kansas men's basketball team knows what it means to play in the postseason. The Jayhawks consistently make the NCAA Tournament, and once again find themselves in the Sweet 16 with a matchup against Clemson looming.

Meanwhile, the Kansas football program is in shambles. With the Jayhawks at an all-time low, a group of Kansas fans is calling for change.

Since 2010, after the dismissal of former head coach Mark Mangino, the Jayhawks have managed to go 15-81 and 4-67 in the Big 12. On Wednesday afternoon, a group of Kansas fans pulled together to create a billboard with quotes from ESPN's Dan Le Batard describing the state of the football program.

The group also created a website, savesksfb.com, in which the first thing you see upon entry is "#firezenger" - the school's athletic director Sheahon Zenger.

Zenger has hired two football coaches during his time with the Jayhawks, Charlie Weis and David Beatty. Weis racked up a 3-22 record over two and a half years, while Beatty has actually fared worse, with a record of 3-33 in his three seasons.

Kansas fans clearly aren't happy.
