Kansas football head coach Charlie Weis announced the dismissal of KU players Collin Garrett and Chris Robinson from the team here Monday afternoon. Garrett, a sophomore from Beaumont, Texas and Robinson, a redshirt freshman from Sanford, Fla., were both dismissed for a violation of team rules.
The loss of Garrett hurts from the perspective that he was a true freshman who showed a lot of promise last season while playing in three games. Fortunately Kansas does have some depth at linebacker and that will be a loss that can be absorbed. For Robinson it's an issue of depth. The loss comes at a position that was somewhat thin already and while we really don't know how well Robinson would have filled in, he was a body in the defensive backfield.
Either way, Weis obviously has his reasons and this is another example of a pretty clear shift in the mentality and discipline surrounding the program. Attrition is to be expected when a coaching change takes place and Weis and his staff will no continue to work toward changing the culture and hopefully the fortunes of Kansas football.
