If you're a Jayhawk fan stunned at the seemingly out-of-nowhere move from Kansas to hire Florida offensive coordinator and former Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis, you're still not as surprised as Weis' current/ex boss, Gators' head coach Will Muschamp:
While Weis isn't practicing a lot of diplomacy with his peers, the immediate reaction among Kansas' Big 12 / SEC rivals has shared the same attitude Muschamp's probably feeling right now:
- Oklahoma blog Crimson And Cream Machine sums up KU's head coaching situation of the last decade rather, uh, succinctly with its headline "KU fires one fat prick, hires/then fires Mr. Nice guy, hires another fat prick."
- The bad blood between border rivals KU and Missouri has only worsened with the Tigers' move to the SEC in 2012, and Rock M Nation is having a hearty chuckle over the move at the moment.
- Meanwhile, in-state rival Kansas State has one elated word for the Weis hire: "AWESOMESAUCE."
