Weis practicing how to win

Yesterday, Kansas had a 6 a.m. practice that ended unlike any other so far this spring.

To wrap up practice, Charlie Weis brings out the kicker to simulate a game winning field goal. Attempt #1 misses. Attempt #2 sails through the uprights and the sideline clears in celebration. Sounds like every other game winning practice celebration at first...right?

Not so fast.

Weis has the players clear the field. Needless to say he wasn't happy with the celebration, and addressed the situation saying, “I can tell you guys aren’t used to winning."

"Winning a football game is not supposed to be an uncommon occurrence. I know that’s a novel concept around here. OK. When you win a football game, there’s supposed to be a celebration that looks like a celebration. And that was a pile of crap."

"I believe in practicing everything, including winning. That’s what this is all about."

“This is about, third game of the season, you’re sitting here 2-0. You’re playing TCU...and you hit a field goal to win the game. Act that way!”

To really experience it, you've got to see the entire video, which can be found here.
