Living In The Shadow: An NCAA 13 Dynasty Lawrence, KS (AP) - Charlie Weis' first try at being a college head coach ended in disaster, the longtime NFL assistant was unable to live up to the lofty expectations at Notre Dame. Weis, 57, will receive a second opportunity at a head coaching gig following an announcement made Saturday on the Kansas campus. Weis inherits a program just a few years removed from an Orange Bowl win, but also one that has since struggled under Turner Gill (5-19 in two seasons). Weis is coming off his first year as offensive coordinator at Florida; though his most extensive experience in the college ranks dates back to his 35-27 record at Notre Dame. Athletic director Sheahon Zenger is hoping Weis' high profile can generate some buzz within the UK football program, which admittedly lives in the shadow of it's powerhouse basketball program. Interestingly enough, Dayne Crist is set to transfer from South Bend to Lawrence, and is eligible to play right away. Weis recruited Crist to Notre Dame back in 2008- Crist was the 3rd best QB in the 2007 class and ranked 25th overall nationally. Also of note, former BYU QB Jake Heaps is transferring to Lawrence as well. Heaps was previously rated as the top QB in the 2009 class. While Crist can play right away, Heaps must sit a year (which clearly benefits the Jayhawks if Crist can perform). Other coaching changes for the Jayhawks are DB coach Clint Bowen (North Texas DC), DC Tyler Kasperson (South Dakota State HC), TE coach Jeff Blasko (Florida GA), WR coach and recruiter Rob Ianello (Akron HC), LB coach DeMontie Cross (Wisconsin DB's), QB coach Ron Powlus (Akron QB's), OL coach Tim Grunhard (Bishop Miege HS HC (Roeland Park, KS)), and strength and conditioning coach Scott Holsopple (Florida S&C). House Rules: 1. Heisman recruiting and playing difficulty. 2. +1 Scholarship method (Seniors + Empty Roster Space + 1). 3. Recruiting targeting local kids as best I can. 5. Only players I can add to the recruiting board after preseason are 3 stars and below. ----Should prevent me from getting guys I "shouldn't". 6. All games will be simmed- four at a time. 7. I'm using these updated rosters. 8. No manual redshirting. If a guy doesn't play all season, NCAA will save me his year of eligibility automatically like it does.
