NCB 2015 CFB Previews: Kansas Jayhawks

AN EXPERIMENTAL HIRE The Charlie Weis experiment was probably doomed from the start. After recording just a 6-22 record (and just 1-18 in Big 12 play), the Jayhawks parted ways with the one-time offensive guru just four games into the 2014 season. Apparently getting blown out by Duke was okay but losing to Texas was [&hellip The post NCB 2015 CFB Previews: Kansas Jayhawks appeared...

The Past, Present, and Future of Kansas Jayhawks Quarterbacks

It seems like lightyears since we last saw success in the Kansas football program.  Part of the disappointment, undoubtedly, goes back to the revolving door of the football coaching staff.  But KU has also had another glaring hole in recent years: the quarterback.

Kansas Swings for the Fences By Hiring David Beaty

When Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger set out to find the replacement for Charlie Weis, he likely hearkened back to the glory days of the Jayhawks’ run to the 2008 Orange Bowl. That team was led by a tough, rugged head coach with a keen eye for detail, and was largely built on the backs of solid but mostly overlooked Texas recruits. At the end of the day, Zenger had his...

Florida President Overheard Discussing Next Offensive Coordinator: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis”

The major failing of Will Muschamp’s tenure at Florida was his inability to field a competent offense to match what was a very good Gators defense. From 2011-2014, Florida’s offenses finished 71st, 78th, 113th, and 56th. Former Notre Dame, and most recently, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator of that 2011 team, and he clearly didn’t leave a great impression...
