Charlie Weis announces shakeup with way KU offense is coordinated |

I appreciate that HCCW is at least considering changes in coaching.  I think that ultimately he needs to hand the coordinating off to someone else and focus on the head coaching part of the job.  This fits into his promise of trying whatever it takes to get the offense going.

Opinion: Mid-season change an encouraging step for Weis, KU football |

I definitely agree this is encouraging, but I'm not going to call this a wholesale change.  Essentially, this is like an owner of a restaurant saying the kitchen is taking on a whole new direction when the only change made is who does the prep work in the morning.  The beginning may look a bit different, but ultimately, you are likely to get the same dish as before.

Even given what I said above, this "shake-up" almost feels like a way to shift  blame. If the offense continues to perform poorly, he can say that it must not have been him, since these other guys couldn't do it either.  If it works out, he can still take some credit since he has final say.  I'm not sure if he would actually do this, but it definitely stinks.

Unfortunately, I think we would need to pull a couple upsets for Heeney to win DPOY.

I get the feeling that there will be a lot of foul outs early in the year.  Should give us a good chance to look at our depth though. And Big East games will have even more fouls.
