Charlie Weis Says Confidence Key To Kansas Bouncing Back

The Kansas Jayhawks suffered a crushing defeat on Saturday at the hands of the Rice Owls, losing 25-24 on a last-second 45-yard field goal by Rice placekicker Chris Boswell. The loss dropped Kansas to 1-1 on the season, and the lackluster performance by his team had Kansas head coach Charlie Weis addressing the issue of "confidence" in his postgame comments:

"That's what our whole conversation in the locker room was. The number one thing they have to understand is it's not OK to lose. It's not like, `Well, you lost the game but good effort.' That's not okay. When you don't close out a game on offense, you don't close out a game on defense and you don't close it out on special teams that's just not acceptable, and that's just the way it is. The assistants and I have to do a better job of teaching and learning how to finish a game."

Next Saturday, Kansas welcomes the TCU Horned Frogs to Memorial Stadium.
