What does a coach do after a soul-crushing loss? Where does a team go after a demoralizing 41-3 loss at Duke in the second game of the season?
Kansas football coach Charlie Weis started moving forward Saturday evening during the charter flight home from Durham, N.C.
“When you lose a game you had high hopes for,” Weis said, “We didn’t wait until the plane landed.”
Weis’ latest comments came on Monday morning during his weekly 10-minute segment on the Big 12 coaches’ teleconference. It was a routine interview during a week that could be anything but standard for Weis and the Kansas program.
After a narrow victory against Southeast Missouri State and an ugly performance at Duke, the Jayhawks’ season now stands at an early crossroads. Central Michigan is set to arrive in Lawrence for a Saturday matchup, a final nonconference game that now feels deeply urgent for Weis.
