"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
Charlie's last name is Weis.
Also, some friendly reminders: Troy's last name is "Woolfolk" not "Woolfork" and there's only one "m" in "Hemingway."
Those are the only spelling corrections I have to make for now. I'm not sure how we can still spell names incorrectly that we've all seen thousands of times by now.
But I can't wait until Joe Boldin, Caleb Ringer, and Jared Wilson get to campus.
Don't forget Eric Magnuson and Andre Pipkens.
So, it wasn't Ernest Hemmingway who wrote "A Farwell To Arms", right?
Went through 2 season ending knee injuries, had to learn a new system, then had coach purple face pull him after 1 half for a QB that can't stop handing the ball to the other team.
I'm glad he gets to reunite with a coach that he obviously looks up to and respects. Say what you want about Weis, he put 2 quarterbacks in the first 2 rounds. I'm just glad Wisconsin can't continue having hired guns under center.
Wisconsin heads asplode
I'm dreaming of a Weis Crist-mas....
Death to Kansas
Haha now they get Jake Heaps too. QBU in Lawrence!
It is reasonable to conclude that the transfer of Dayne Crist to Kansas is occuring largely if not solely because he will have a better opportunity to be the starting QB on the football team and because he may have a better rapport with the head coach, Charlie Weis.
Clearly playing football and being a starting QB is very important to him and outweighs the other aspects of the schools. Yet, we still have a lot of archaic rules about transferring and eligibility. Let's look at it from another standpoint - what if Dayne Crist wasn't a QB but a theoretical physics major. He goes to ND expecting to study string theory under the famous professor XYZ. After he enrolls he finds that professor XYZ is leaving to be the new chair at another school and the new professor is a string theory critic. No one would find it odd for him to transfer to the new school to continue his studies under professor XYZ.
1. The top players view their sports careers and training just like the students look at their degrees and concentrations.
2. Why should they be penalized for moving to the places they believe (right or wrong) may help them further their sports ambitions.
3. After any leadership change, any school should offer to release its players.
