Kansas head coach Charlie Weis has a different kind of personality. One that allows him to laugh at himself and be quite frank.
During Big 12 Media Day in Dallas, Weis discussed with the media, his recruiting pitch to athletes he’s trying to get to make the trek to Lawrence, Kansas.
Weis did not disappoint with his answer.
“Everyone wants to play,” Weiss 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.”
Weis now has to get that “pile of crap,” to turn around and perform.
