He fits weight requirement

This is heartbreaking. So we won't be hearing about Jabba the Weis having a month to prepare for the Buckeyes?

I guess Florida's offense was so good this year that someone had to scoop him up...

Mangino --> Weiss. Pattern?

They didn't want to buy a new chair for the head coach= economically responsible

Mangino was an "eff you" to Bill Snyder, who hired Mangino originally, before Mangino left for OU.  Weis is a polar opposite to Mangino, but with the added bonus of a cane.  Makes me happy that KU is so dumb at football.  Weis is going to struggle worse than Gill did, simply because that team has no D (no news), but is a spread offense team.  Weis is a pro-style guy.  Ask Florida how well things have gone on the O side since Weis took over and installed his offense with spread personnel.  This scares me far less than the Malzahn rumor that was floating around.  Looking forward to more Jayhawk beatdowns by my Wildcats.  Sic 'em, Bill!

BTW- Weis isn't HALF the coach that Mangino is...... well, you know what i mean.

Brady Hoke needs to gain bout 10-20lbs if he expects to coach at Kansas, after he gets fired from Michiigan

Ruh-ro. I thought we had a chance against the Gators with Weis leading their offense.

Now I'm not so sure.

Sitting at work, next to a Kansas season ticket holder, he feels that this is an epic fail.

They all wanted Leach badly, then Fedora badly, this really feels like settling to most KU fans.  It's a big name, but without much substance.  The guy has had 4 jobs in the past 4 years.  Is he really going to invest the energy and time into a program that is absolutely in shambles?  Doubtful.  This is just a nice paycheck for "old front-butt".

vacuuming sucks

Kansas wants to shake up the world with their coaching hires.  I mean literally, shake the world.  Those weighing under 350 lbs need not apply.

Pretty sure our chances of winning that bowl game just dropped since we no longer have to worry about UF's "decided schematic advantage."
