LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ One of Charlie Weis' goals upon arriving at Kansas was simply to be competitive.
He inherited a program that had won just one conference game the previous two years, had won two games total the final season under Turner Gill, and had floundered to the bottom of the Big 12 just five years after winning the Orange Bowl.
Weis wanted to see his fight, and learn how to win again. And despite a 1-9 record with two games in his first year, the Jayhawks have at least accomplished that much. They host Iowa State this Saturday.
