"I would not say one word," Weis said on Monday’s Big 12 coaches teleconference. "I would not say who the quarterback (will be). Not a chance."

Honestly, at this point, would we listen if he DID say something about it?

I included this more for humor than anything else. Keegan basically accuses ISU of cheating but says he isn't.
