Charlie Weis is entering the third year of a five-year contract at Kansas and he knows better than anyone that the Jayhawks need to start winning games in a hurry.
The longtime Big 12 doormat won just once in his first season and three times last year, including a conference victory over West Virginia. But for Weis to feel good about the progress that has been made, it may take going at least .500 for the first time since 2008.
Weis took the drama out of the biggest question in the spring when he appointed sophomore quarterback Montell Cozart the starter. But there are plenty of question marks elsewhere on the two-deep, especially with another influx of junior college prospects.
Kansas opens its season Sept. 6 against Southeast Missouri State.
