Charlie Weis is starting from scratch at Kansas, where he doesn’t even like the way the Jayhawks celebrate.
The Kansas City Star gave a blow-by-blow of Weis’ recent spring practice, where there was a kicking drill in which Ron Doherty was given the hypothetical circumstance of having to make a game-winning boot.
When Doherty eventually did on the second try, KU players came onto the field and celebrated – but apparently it wasn’t to Weis’ liking. Check out the following transcription of the new coach’s rant thanks to The Star.
“I can tell you guys aren’t used to winning. (Pause) Hey. Hey, fellas. OK. Winning a football game is not supposed to be an uncommon occurrence. I know that’s a novel concept around here,” Weis said.
“OK. When you win a football game, there’s supposed to be a celebration that looks like a celebration. And that was a pile of crap.”
Weis then went on to say that, when KU is 2-0 and heading into a Week 3 game against TCU next fall, it should be ready to celebrate its first conference win since 2010.
We won’t hold our breath for a win over the Horned Frogs, but Weis’ attitude has to be refreshing for those in Lawrence – even if it’s a bit optimistic.
