it's a major award
and he couldn't be happier with this hire!
How's that chant go? Rock, gold bond medicated powder, Jayhawk?
is transferring! Schematic Advantage KU!
Srsly, what the hell?
an over/under on Mangino/Weis jokes. Now, I'm just going to take the over...no matter what it is. Carry on.
Funny, Weiss' scale always takes the over too.
Well, to be fair, going 6-6 and beating Vanderbilt would be considered a great accomplishment for Kansas.
Turner Gill must be sitting there saying to himself, 'they fired me for... *him*'?
Lets be honest, Tuner Gill is half the coach Weis is, maybe less.
Watch charlie implode while blame everyone else if he fails.
If he couldn't win with 5 stars and ND's 9ish gimme's a year how the hell do they expect him to win at KU.
The new AD should be fired immediately.
Kansas is really looking forward to having a decisive tactical advantage.
may have been better off taking a coaching job at a Bolivian University.
I'm going to be contrarian. Dude has Rings and NFL contacts. He'll be able to recruit because he can legitamely tell kids "I know what it takes you get you to the next level and I can help you get there."
I think he achieves middling success at KU. Yes he never beats the cream of the B12, but he'll do well enough, get them a decent bowl, and give them some alums in the NFL to brag out. Assuming the fans don't get greedy he'll bring them success.
Two things you're missing:
1. Weis had more talent at ND than any team he played outside of USC, and he turned in a number of lousy years despite it. Those people chose ND for ND, not Charlie Weis. His talent level will be far lower in Lawrence and his schedule will be comparable. I'd be surprised if he beats 7 wins more than once.
2. He, like Mangino, is a fat person. Very fat person. This is integral to the thread, yet you neglected to mention it.
To his credit, he did use cream in his response.
Reminding us that Charlie Weis drinks gallons of cream every day to work around the constraints of his lap band.
Weis and KU really deserve each other. KU got too big for their britches when they fired Mangino, and Weis is too big for almost any pair of britches in any department store.
How many college teams does Charlie have to drive into the ground before people stop hiring him?
the answer to your question is, apparently: "At least three".
I decided to peruse this thread to make a fat joke. All of you guys were on top of that, and more apparently. So I guess I'll just call him FatWeiss and leave it at that.
Kind of a slap in the face to Muschamp, "Thanks for the job, I'm out!"
Yeah, Muschamp might not be all that bummed though.
"Don't let the door hit you in the front butt on the way to KU"
Apparently, the KU AD thought the hire would "put Kansas Football on the map."
Well, it makes KU visible from space, but I don't think that's exactly what he was gunning for...
Laugh all you want, but this means more FL kids goin to Ohio. Muschamp is totally gonna bounce back to Texas once Mack Brown realizes he's not a good coach anymore. Muschamp is one of those great coordinator-bad head coach types, IMO.
hired him is that they stuill have some of Mangino's clothes left...
I was looking forward to seeing Charlie in the box during the Gator Bowl.
Without his decide schematic advantage to discuss, we'll only hear about the matchup of Urban Meyer's old team against his new team.
I hadnt heard any rumors about this. Maybe we should have checked barges on the Mississippi instead of FlightTracker
We should have been on the look out for his party barge in the Great Dune Sea on Tatooine
It must be the intoxicating aroma of bacon around Charlie Weis that causes people to keep hiring him.
Mmmmm, bacon. /Homer
Do we have any openings on our schedule in the next three years? I'd love to beat Weis again, plus wins against BCS programs always look nice, and we'll have to schedule them fast before Weis gets fired.
on those BIG 12 eateries...
Hahahaha, you know it's an epic thread when there are 64 comments and 13 of them are already +5'd!
is a match made in heaven. Mediocrity, meet your new master of ceremonies!
A scheme guy. You need to be a teacher in college...if you want to succeed that is.
Come on, we all know he will succeed because of his decided schematic advantage.
I guess if Weis doesn't work out*, they can always just hire Ralph Friedgen to replace him.
*I know, he clearly doesn't work out, but that's not what I meant
So they just needed another fat guy? There must be a restaurant chain that had a say in this.
Somewhere in the country there are a batch of relatively unknown young coordinators or coaches in non-BCS conferences currently waiting for their first chance at a BCS level program. These coaches will go on to fame and great success at whichever school is smart enough to hire them.
Kansas, it appears, is not one of those schools.
42 years ago, Michigan was.
