LAWRENCE — Charlie Weis looked at Kansas’ struggling offense, and, disappointed, made some major changes.
On Tuesday, Weis announced he was delegating some of his own responsibilities as offensive coordinator to two assistants. Going forward, quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus will run KU’s passing game and tight ends coach Jeff Blasko will be in charge of the run game and protections.

LAWRENCE — Sometimes football can be a pretty simple game.
If you strip away the dig routes and the sight-adjusts and all the complex terminology, the game boils down to throwing a ball and catching it. Therein was the problem last season for Kansas, a team doomed by a simple and obvious flaw.

Kansas’ Justin McCay looks to bring talent and firepower to the Jayhawk offense in the upcoming season By: Brennan Keller Perhaps one of the most shocking statistics from last year’s 1-11 season was the fact that the wide receivers accounted for zero combined receiving touchdowns. Yup, you heard it right. Zero touchdowns. With the lack of talent at the receiver position last season, head coach Charlie Weis knew that he needed to hit the recruiting trail hard in pursuit of some players that could bring excitement and talent to the offensive side of the ball. One of those players is wide receiver Justin McCay. McCay, who had to sit out last season due to NCAA transfer rules, brings that… Continue reading
LAWRENCE — Before we all get too carried away, it’s worth noting that a year ago at Kansas’ spring game, some guy named Dayne Crist looked pretty sharp, too.
Despite numerous similarities, albeit with much more reasonable expectations, Jake Heaps showed he is not Dayne Crist — or as much as he could, anyway, in a meaningless game in April.
That’s not to say Heaps did anything to lessen the hopes that he’ll provide the Jayhawks with some much-needed stability, if not an actual playmaking threat, at quarterback.
