LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas coach Charlie Weis, freshly doused in Gatorade and freshly freed from the burden of a Big 12 losing streak that predated his hiring, told players to enjoy Saturday’s 31-19 win over West Virginia. As the postgame locker room footage showed, they were more than willing.
“It’s a great way to start the end of the season,” Weis told his Jayhawks after they snapped a 27-game conference losing streak that stretched back to 2010.
“I do enjoy watching the smiles on everyone’s face. That’s my enjoyment. My true enjoyment is watching everyone else be happy. And you want to know something? That’s pretty nice.”
