KANSAS CITY, Mo. Dayne Crist has decided to transfer to Kansas, where the former Notre Dame quarterback will be reunited with coach Charlie Weis. Crist announced his decision on Twitter on Thursday: "After a long & difficult decision making process, I'm incredibly excited to join the Kansas football team. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!" Crist visited Kansas and Wisconsin before deciding on the Jayhawks, where Weis was hired to replace the fired Turner Gill. Weis recruited Crist to Notre Dame and was his coach for two years. One of the country's top recruits out of high school, Crist started the season as the Fighting Irish's starting quarterback but was benched at halftime of the opener against South Florida. He played only a handful of snaps behind Tommy Rees the remainder of the season. Crist has already graduated, so he'll be eligible to play for Kansas immediately.

We are knee deep in bowl games this time of year. The Hawaii Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, Poinsettia Bowl, Beef O'Brady's Bowl, New Orleans Bowl, and on and on. You name it, there is a bowl for it. I'm not complaining. I love the variety and getting to see schools play other schools that they don't traditionally face. As fun as bowl season can be, it's always fun when...
