He's given up on his senior class.
Charlie Weis? tenure at Kansas has gotten off to a rough start as the Jayhawks are 1?4 on the 2012 season. Still, it?s much too early for KU to give up on its season. Right?
Well, Weis is apparently more of a pragmatist. He announced during Monday?s Big 12 conference call that on Sunday he only practiced with players who will be on next year?s team. That?s right, a football practice with no seniors.
?We practiced without seniors Sunday. We need to develop younger players for the future,? Weis said. He also clarified that while the seniors didn?t practice they did spend the day running and lifting weights.
While we understand the need to give younger players more playing time, it doesn?t seem fair for seniors to be cut out of practice after they put three-and-a-half years of their lives into the program.
If the Jayhawks come out flat in their Saturday home game against Oklahoma State, look no further than this baffling coaching tactic as the reason why.
