It won’t take long for the eyes of the Big 12 to fall upon Kansas as they see just exactly Charlie Weis will make of the Jayhawks program. Of course, nothing can be turned around overnight, but the arrival of TCU and the exciting new coach of KU make for a compelling opening match where some signs of life should emerge if Weis has the team on the right.
Not only is this Weis’ first game, but Dave Campo will have his defense as another aspect to watch as well as the arrival of quarterback Dayne Crist. KU will only be as good as their new quarterback so Crist has many hopes riding on his shoulders. As David Ubben analyzes the schedule, he says this match-up against TCU is one to watch.
Ubben writes, “It’s been awhile since Lawrence hosted a game that came anything close to must-see, but this qualifies. TCU takes part in the first Big 12 game of the season, and Charlie Weis makes his debut in the conference to see what his Jayhawks have to offer.”
The season opens on September 15.
