Charlie Weis will go against in-state rival Kansas State in the Sunflower Showdown for the first time since becoming head coach of the Jayhawks in the off season on Saturday. The Wildcats have dominated the Jayhawks in recent years, winning 16 of the last 20 meetings since Bill Snyder took the head coaching job for K-State.
In his weekly press conference on Tuesday, Weis praised Snyder not only because of the dominance his teams have had over the Jayhawks, but because he is so good with his offensive planning:
"First of all, I think he has a great offensive mind besides being a hell of a head coach. I like the way he creates extra gaps in the run game and how he uses misdirection to really put pressure on the defenses. If you are not sound fundamentally on defense, he will definitely expose you."
The Jayhawks will certainly have their hands full against the K-State offense, as they haven't held a team to under 20 points since their Week 1 win over South Dakota State. The teams will face off in Big 12 play at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
