Lemming and Weis, together again

This recruiting blurb is so chock full of teh awesome that I hardly know where to begin.

But lemme try, anyway:  Charlie Weis, “known mostly for his recruiting prowess”, has picked up his first commitment at Kansas, a seventy-inch tall, 160-pound receiver whose dad coached for Weis at Notre Dame and whose high school coach is joining Weis’ Jayhawk staff.  Sounds like Charlie really had to break a sweat to sway this kid to switch his commitment from… Northern Illinois.

That’s not the best part, though.  Here’s the cherry on top of the sundae.

“He runs tremendous routes, shows terrific hands and blazing speed,” analyst Tom Lemming said of Parmalee. “In fact, coaches at Bishop Miege said he has the best hands and ran the best routes they’ve ever seen at the high school level.”

Just like old times!  Get a room, you two.

    “know mostly for his recruiting prowess” translates to “can’t coach his way out of a paper bag,” right?

    “He runs tremendous Todd Graham-like routes from Foxborough to South Bend, Kansas City, Gainesville and Lawrence; shows terrific hands and blazing speed to get to the head of the chow line,” analyst Tom Lemming* said of Charlie. “In fact, coaches at Florida said he has a big ass and ran the best routes to the cafeteria they’ve ever seen at the college level.”

    * “I think it’s a great move for Kansas,” Lemming said. “Charlie Weis
    learned a lot about being a head coach at Notre Dame. At Kansas, he
    won’t have the pressure he had at ND and Florida, so he can build a
    program the right way. All he needs to do is show improvement, and at
    Kansas, how could you not?” [rimshot omitted]



  3. What, no Wes Welker comparisons? Why hold back?

    A 5’8, 160 pound receiver previously committed to Northern Illinois? Sure, it’s silly for Lemming to fawn all over Charlie Weis, but that does sound like a huge get for Kansas. Not compared to other BCS programs, but for Kansas? Getting a guy to de-commit from Augusta State would be a pretty huge win. And, I’m pretty sure they don’t even have a football team.

    Lemming and Weis; Sounds like an Arctic food dish.

    Sounds like an agent was involved. Score one for NIU.

    No doubt Charlie won him over by showing him tapes of Charlie sitting on the cooler between series, all the while ignoring most of the players on offense.
