Decided schematic advantage is boring.

Bruce Feldman reports that Charlie Weis falls asleep in team meetings.  And, yes, that’s “meetings” as in plural.

Also, this.

I wonder which AD is dumb enough to sign him to a deal after Kansas cuts him loose.  Don’t forget those Super Bowl rings!

The return of the decided schematic advantage

After all these years, it turns out that it’s been Tom Brady holding back Charlie Weis.  Who knew?

To reiterate, it’s not that the schools resist spending money…

Case in point:

As has been in the case in recent years, the document showed that former football head coach Charlie Weis received more money from the school in 2012 than did any current athletics employee. Weis again received nearly $2.1 million as part of an ongoing separation agreement…

Kelly was listed with nearly $1.5 million in total pay…

So, yes, Charlie Weis was paid better than a half-million dollars more than the guy who got Notre Dame into the national title game for the first time in decades.  That 2005 loss to Southern Cal will go down as the most valuable defeat in Irish history.

These guys are morons.

The late decided schematic advantage

Will Muschamp’s first offensive coordinator is throwing in the towel on his offensive genius reputation.

The wheels are in motion for Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis to bring in an offensive coordinator following this season.

The Journal-World reported Wednesday afternoon that KU offensive line coach Tim Grunhard would step down after Saturday’s 11 a.m. season finale against Kansas State, and Weis confirmed the report Wednesday evening in a statement.

“Sunday, Tim Grunhard is stepping down as offensive line coach so he can spend more quality time with his family,” said Weis, who revealed that Grunhard’s replacement had already been hired but would not be announced until that coach “becomes available.”

Sources have told the Journal-World that Rice offensive coordinator John Reagan, a former KU assistant on Mark Mangino’s staff, will be hired to serve in the dual role of OC and O-line coach and bring his offense to Lawrence.

I never knew that “more quality time with his family” is a euphemism for “Tom Brady made me look a lot smarter than I really am”.

Fear not, Jayhawk Nation!  Weis can now turn his talents, such as they are, to leading the Kansas program to greatness.

The move would free up Weis to focus entirely on running the program as head coach, a role that entails recruiting, motivating players on the field and in the classroom, instilling discipline and challenging assistants in a variety of ways.

I know I’m pumped.

Decided schematic advantage, my ass

Baylor racked up over 500 yards of offense against Kansas on Saturday.  In the first half.

But I’m not sure that’s even my favorite statistic from the game.  How about this one“All eight Baylor drives that ended in a touchdown were completed in under two minutes.”

It’s impressive to think that man (“After losing his first 13 Big 12 games, he must now prepare for road games at Texas and Oklahoma State.”) draws a paycheck with a straight face.

Charlie Weis is so bad…

that he’s moved the usually low-key Bruce Feldman to sarcasm.

With Saturday’s 23-14 loss to Rice, Charlie Weis has now lost 16 games in a row against FBS opponents. In half of those losses, Mr. Schematic Advantage has been held to 17 points or less.

Sadly, that won’t stop Weis from getting another coaching job after he moves on from Kansas.  Because there’s always one more dumb AD than you think there is.

Charlie Weis had twice as good a season as you thought.

On its official website, Kansas football is counting this year’s spring game as a win on its 2012 schedule.  I kid you not.

I’m having a hard time coming up with anything more pathetic than that. Jeebus.
