Where are Bill Belichick and Tom Brady when you need them? The glory days of Super Bowl victories in New England have to seem like decades ago for Charlie Weis, who instead is busy commenting about the student paper’s coverage on Twitter and flip-flopping as well as any politician in Washington. The Twitter rant wasn’t [...]
It’s a scene that’s been duplicated for years. Football season starts, Kansas isn’t any good, and rival fans recycle what I guess they consider to be a good old-fashioned zinger. “It’s OK, it’s almost basketball season,” people say while pointing and laughing at the scoreboard or a Kansas fan with the “win or lose, we [...]
Shortly after Charlie Weis was hired last December, he strolled onto the court at Allen Fieldhouse and asked the packed house a question: “We’re 2-10,” Weis said. “The other school in this state is 10-2. Why?” It was obvious that Weis had orders that day not to mention “the school in Columbia” as Mizzou was [...]
It’s not Dayne Crist’s fault he’s not Tom Brady, the three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback under offensive coordinator Charlie Weis. It’s Charlie Weis’ fault for not realizing the difference. Weis, who talked all offseason about the changes he’s made since his mostly failed tenure at Notre Dame, has spent the first three weeks of the season [...]

The off-season hype surrounding Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist was larger than any Kansas recruit in years. The former 5-star high school recruit had graduated from Notre Dame and was looking for a fresh start with Charlie Weis, the coach who recruited him in 2009 but never coached him for an entire season. Crist battled knee [...]
Jimmy Johnson, former University of Miami and Dallas Cowboys coach, had a saying. “It’s about the Jimmy’s and Joe’s, not the X’s and O’s.” While coaches are hired and fired, the formula for great teams remains the same: talent, all over the field. This isn’t about the upgraded Kansas coaching staff or the improved roster [...]
Your first week of syllabi and lectures are almost over, freshmen, but there’s still more to learn. The University of Kansas has some of the best traditions in the country, but there’s always room for improvement. Reaching the upperclassmen is useless at this point, so it’s up to you, class of 2016. Here are a [...]
