The above tweet from Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis is in response to the headline on a piece that ran in the University Daily Kansan, the student newspaper for KU.
When you mention Oklahoma State in recent years under Mike Gundy, you’re likely to remember epic video game battles with your friends. The Cowboys put up “big, big numbers” in the words of Kansas coach Charlie Weis.
Facing a 17-0 deficit late in the 3rd quarter with the Kansas offense going nowhere fast, Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis desperate for a spark for his reeling team, benched starting quarterback Dayne Crist in favor of redshirt freshman Michael Cummings and instantly, there was life.
