Charlie Weis will have to make due without two key offensive pieces who figured to play prominent roles this season, as the Jayhawks revealed Tuesday that senior running backs Brandon Bourbon and Taylor Cox each suffered season-ending injuries. Bourbon tore his ACL during Sunday's scrimmage and Cox, in a non-contact injury, tore his Achilles tendon Monday. "I feel bad for...

Charlie Weis Doesn’t Know What ‘Huge Turnout’ Actually Means

It seems that the Kansas Jayhawks were having a practice at Arrowhead Stadium and a handful of fans showed up.

If this is a 'huge turnout,' maybe that explains the crowds at KU games

Well, now we know what qualifies as a big crowd for KU football. Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis conducted his final football day camp for young football players at Arrowhead Stadium on Wednesday, and considering the "huge turnout" he described in a tweet he sent out, you could almost feel the place buzzing -- especially if you've ever been at Arrowhead for, say, a Chiefs...

Photo: Charlie Weis Tweets Picture Of Day Camp Attendance, Does Not Understand What “Huge Turnout” Means

With Kansas’ Memorial Stadium under renovation to have the track removed, Charlie Weis and his staff hosted a summer football day camp at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City today. This wouldn’t be too notable, but it appears that Charlie Weis either has adopted Haley Joel Osment’s power from the Sixth Sense, or he has hilariously low expectations for attendance at KU events....

Kansas' confusing fake punt attempt

On this one, we're going to spare Charlie Weis a mention of the "decided schematic advantage" quote. We're not going to bring that up because there is, we'll concede, a reasonable level of doubt as to who, precisely, is to blame for this. As you can see, Weis' Jayhawks were backed up against their own goal line in the first half of a 10-10 game at home...

KU's Weis is in Johnny Manziel's corner -- kind of

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Count Charlie Weis in Johnny Manziel's corner. Kind of. "I think there are numbers of (players) that don't have any money," the Kansas football coach said during a news conference Wednesday afternoon. Money -- or, rather, major-college players' inability to receive it above the table while their likenesses are marketed by their respective...

Weis' pitch: We're a 'pile of crap'

The Charlie Weis Story. Sometimes it seems like he knows exactly what he's doing, and sometimes you really start to wonder. He had another Charlie Moment on Monday at Big 12 Media Days in Dallas. He was up there talking about his recruiting pitch at Kansas, where he coaches, and it came out he doesn't think much of his roster. "Have you taken a look at that pile of...

Buyout of Charlie Weis may end up costing Notre Dame $19 million

Notre Dame fans have long moved on from the Charlie Weis era. Weis was hired to coach the Fighting Irish in 2005, and he was unsuccessful in restoring a tradition of winning in South Bend. His successor, Brian Kelly, led Notre Dame to the BCS National Championship game last season. A glance at the school’s payroll might lead you to believe Weis had something to do with it. As Brian...
