08:18 AM ET 10.12 | As has become all too familiar a circumstance, Charlie Weis is again coaching a struggling football team. They have gone 1-4, lost four in a row and just got strafed 56-16 by rival Kansas State. So, what is a former professional offensive coordinator and college head coach supposed to do? Why, pick on the student newspaper, of course. Weis tweeted, "Team slammed by our own school newspaper. Amazing! No problem with opponents paper or local media. You deserve what you get! But, not home!" ... Weis reportedly directed a school public relations official to discourage one of the student beat writers from asking questions at Weis' weekly news conference.

If he spent as much energy coaching instead of eating, imagine the heights he could take Kansas to.

Hey, uncool man! He helped plenty of struggling restaurants in the Gainesville area

Someone did open a decent BBQ place near the stadium last year. Coincidence, I think not.

He also lived in Ocala so he helped every fast food place in between.

Charlie is a sensitive guy.

+1.

Schematic advantage ain't all it's cracked up to be. No matter what school you try to apply it, apparently.

Charlie is an increasingly sad story; a man who had a dream of coaching CFB at his alma mater, Notre Dame, got his opportunity and demonstrated that he wasn't a CFB coach, he's an NFL Offensive Coordinator.
Won't accept his true abilities, and limitations, and is still trying to prove he can coach a college team, and is apparently getting very defensive about criticism.
Charlie, go back to the NFL and be happy you are good at that job.

The headline is wrong. It should be "Charlie Bellying Student Newspaper." He's fixin' to eat it. Clearly that's his way of dealing with problems.
