KU hangs with TCU but falls 20-6 | CJOnline.com
Charlie Weis called his final timeout with 1:04 on the clock and TCU in the victory formation, so the purpose clearly wasn’t to talk strategy.Weis wasn’t trying to be obnoxious, either. He just wanted to address his team on the field while the moment was fresh."It was a teaching moment about turning the corner," Weis said. "That’s what that timeout was about." The gist of the message, as Weis remembers it: "Everyone came in here thinking you were going to get the crap kicked out of you. That didn’t turn out that way, did it?"

I disagree a bit. Yes the expectations will adjust up, but I think since the beginning everyone has wanted to see 'better'. I do think we saw that on Saturday.

“For us, we’re really glad to get our first Big 12 victory. You can’t get to two without one. We know we didn’t play well today. Give KU a lot of credit. They caused some turnovers and moved the football.”

“Everyone came in here today thinking you were going to get the ********** kicked out of you and that didn’t turn out that way, did it?’’ he said.

Positive takeaway: Jayhawks fall to TCU, but Weis says they're 'turning corner' | KUsports.com
This time, it wasn’t all Crist. His receivers dropped balls and misread coverages, and the running game, which had been great all year and was solid in the first half, finished with 77 yards on 26 attempts.

Thieving defense bright spot for KU | KUsports.com
Definitely a positive. We now have as many turnovers as we did all of last year.
