    Weis Calls KU's Team Last Year, "Pile of Crap"

    Interesting recruiting approach. Not sure he is not going a little too far and I would tend to be ****** if I played hard for him last year.

    But KU’s recent woes have been part of Weis’ brutally honest recruiting pitch. Again, here’s Weis not sugarcoating anything, keeping it very real, being so honest you want to reach out and shake his hands, if not pinch his cheek, give him a hug, what have you:
    “Everyone wants to play,” he said. “There’s no one that wants to not play. I said, ‘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? It’s a pretty simple approach. And that’s not a sales pitch. That’s practical. You’ve seen it, right? Unfortunately, so have I.”
    In short, Kansas coach Charlie Weis is aware that last year’s team was a “pile of crap.” Also, if you can’t play at Kansas you should hang up your cleats, hand in your uniform and go study humanities. Sign on the dotted line. Kansas football is a firecracker.

    Weis is a mountain of crap, so I guess it makes sense it rolls down to his team

    I'll admit I lol'ed a little...then I cringed. On one hand it is brutally honest, but then on the other hand I was embarrassed for their team. It sold the fact in my mind that Charlie Weis really doesn't know how to motivate his team and develop players, meaning that they really have one big pile of crap team this year too.

    Weiss is the giant A-hole from which it dropped

    Kansas did practice their "win" celebration last year. Unorthodox he is.

    In related news, Ferentz said Iowa wasn't a dog crap team about 15 months ago.

    Which is worse - practicing a "win" celebration or perfectly lining helmets on the goal line?

    Perfect example of why I'm not worried about KU jumping up anytime soon. I would not want to play for that guy. He could obviously bring in a ton of talent at ND as well. He can't get players to perform for him and they end up looking like one big pile of ****.

    This is a great example of a coach who thinks that the problem is not him, but it's all of "them". Chizik bordered on this too. Weis is an ***, and a really large one at that.


    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Yeah, he's an upgrade from Mangina and that black guy.

    the trick is not in knowing how to motivate - that's impossible - but to find players and create an environment where their self-motivation flourishes. i'm not sure chuck is up to either task.

    So basically you just called Weis a fat ***...

    Good to see KU is stepping up as the perennial doormat for Big 12 football. Thanks for being a team player Jayhawks!

    weis is going places, when he gets flushed down the coaching toilet, mangino will be in the sewer ready to eat him. Good to know we have at least another 5-7 years of KU sucking at football.

    Throwing your own players under the bus. Yep, that should end well.
