Charlie Weis admits to using a crappy recruiting technique

It’s hard to make fun of one’s own players when you look like Jabba the Hut, but Kansas Jayhawks head coach Charlie Weis is making that happen. (Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports)

After the brew-ha-ha that was the 2013 SEC Media Days circus, it was the Big 12’s turn at the podium on Monday. To open things up, the conference unveiled a slick new logo to go into effect beginning in 2014.

Charlie Weis then stepped to the podium, and as to be expected,it was pretty much all downhill from there (we’ve got to say it: Maybe they should have gone with a hamburger to keep him quiet, zing!).

First, the quote that will live on in Twitterverse infamy. When asked what he has told recruits to try to get them to choose Kansas over other schools, well, this is what he said:

Wait, what? Talk about the ultimate player’s coach right there.

Charlie Weis, who was run out of South Bend after leading the historically proud Notre Dame program further into the ground (Brian Kelly took players Weis recruited to the national championship game), then embarrassed Gators fans as Florida’s offensive coordinator (remember, The Swamp is used to Spurrier’s fun ‘n gun and Meyer/Tebow), is making fun of his own players for the 1-11 debacle that was the Jayhawks’ 2012 season?

Yes, yes he is. But wait, there’s more. Big 12 beat writers picked Kansas to finish dead last in the conference in 2013. To that, Weis responded with yet another Weis-ism.

At least we aren’t beating around the bush, right?

Obviously, the rest of the Twittersphere had a ball with Weis’ words.











And, just in case you forgot just how rich this guy is for doing a whole lot of nothing, Good Bull Hunting brings you the following tweet.
