I know it's a bit OT, but this blog has always had a soft spot for Charlie Weis and his Decided Schematic Advantage. Even though he's moved on from Notre Dame - Now the head coach at Kansus University following coordinator stints in the NFL and Florida - he's still generating headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The capper came when someone asked about Weis' recruting pitch, given the miserable state of the Jayhawks program. Weis hit on KU's academics, its facilities set-up and the lure of immediate playing time.He says he puts it this way to the typical high school recruit, referring to players already in the program: "Have you looked at that pile of crap out there? Have you taken a look at that? So if you don't think you can play here, where do you think you can play?
Captain Frontbutt is hardly the first coach to throw a player or section of a team under the bus, but I cannot ever recall a coach blasting his entire team so completely. It's hard to imagine being a player and giving your all for a coach who has publicly stated such a low opinion of you and your teammates.
