Kansas Jayhawks: Charlie Weis Was on ‘Olbermann’ Last Night For Some Reason [Video]


Explain to me how Kansas football manages to land national attention the way it does?

After a thrilling national championship game which saw Florida State come from behind to beat Auburn, 34-31, ESPN decided they should balance out the college football positive vibes by scheduling Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis on the Keith Olbermann’s nightly show.

Why was Weis on the show? Who knows. Heck, even Olbermann didn’t seem to know. Still, there was Charlie Weis and Kansas football featured for seven minutes on national television on college football’s biggest day.

During the segment, Weis broke down the national championship game and answered Olbermann’s questions – except for the one about why Weis was there in the first place (not joking). To Weis’ credit, he put a lot of Florida State’s comeback on the Seminoles receivers, who were excellent with the ball after the catch in the second half, including the key 49-yard catch and run by Rashad Greene on the final drive. The play by Greene and FSU’s second half defense had far more to do with the Seminoles’ win last night than Winston.

    Surprised Weis can even still recognize good wide receiver play. Oh wait, everybody’s wide receivers look good against Kansas.
