Summed up best by EDSBS:

AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH /dies RT @KUAthletics: KU to introduce Charlie Weis as football coach at press conference Friday afternoon.
 
Mod Edit: Seriously, check out EDSBS.com for Orson's response. Only he could fit the phrase "Bangladeshi Garbage Barge" into a post about college football. I was laughing so hard my dog freaked out. [zl]

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*'?

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.

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. 

Britches, bitches.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
