Kansas Coach Charlie Weis was his usual self after a very disappointing 21-17 loss to “The Bad Guys” Saturday.
Although it’s taken me awhile to warm up to Weis’ approach schematically, I’ve really been impressed how he continues to tweak the offense as needed.
Too often early, we saw Weis try to dictate to opposing defenses how the Jayhawks were going to move the ball. But recently, Weis seems to take a more reserved approach and it made a difference offensively Saturday.
Weis talked after the game about why they got away from the pass so early saying that the Texas defense was taking advantage of the inexperienced Michael Cummings. As opposed to forcing Cummings into high risk situations, Weis allowed Cummings to lean on his running backs and let the passing come as needed.
Weis also said that he thought the defense was the reason Kansas was in the game in the first place saying he felt the defense could get the stop in the redzone late which is why he didn’t use the timeouts left on the board.
Those comments and a few others about the game can be seen below in its entirety.
