Kansas' Charlie Weis Say Dayne Crist Was 'A Little Anxious'

Kansas Jayhawks head football coach Charlie Weis was a winner in his debut with Kansas, as the Jayhawks defeated South Dakota St., 31-17, on Saturday.

As a typical Bill Belichick disciple, Weis had plenty to criticize, but unlike Belichick, Weis offered a bit of detail and insight into what he saw out of the Jayhawks -- specifically Dayne Crist.

"There were some throws out there he'd like to have back and he was a little rusty. But to be honest with you, he was a little anxious. Remember, he went all year last year without playing. He got yanked in the first game last year, so he hasn't played in a long time. I think that he'll just get better every single week. I think he feels really good that he was walking off the field healthy, slowing it down a bunch. Some of it is his fault, some of it is other's guys fault, but I think we're pretty happy right now."

Crist was one of Weis' recruits when Weis was the head coach at Notre Dame, so there is some familiarity between the two.

Crist finished Saturday's game 17-of-36 passing for 169 yards and a touchdown.
