Kansas has suffered through losing seasons in 14 of the last 20 years.
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
The Charlie Weis era did not get off to an auspicious start in Lawrence.
Last year the former Notre Dame head coach and New England Patriots offensive coordinator took over a program that has long taken a backseat to the rest of the Big 12 in a sport that has never been as popular in the Sunflower State as basketball.
Expecting Weis to be able to change all that in his first year was too much to ask. Kansas was coming off a 2-10 season and the end of the disastrous two- year run under Turner Gill.
Weis' first season didn't see any improvement. In fact, the Jayhawks were even worse. They managed just a single win, a 31-17 victory over FCS foe South Dakota State, before losing their final 11 contests. There were some close calls along the way.
