08:06 AM ET 01.24 | Kansas head coach Charlie Weis has a rebuild on his hands, and he's trying to close the gap quickly. [Weis] has addressed several key needs for the Jayhawks with this 2013 class. Weis and his staff have signed one of the best junior college classes, and plugging in quick fixes will help this squad become more respectable in a tough Big 12. The Jayhawks will have a lot of these commitments on campus this spring, so that will help the integration process as Weis finishes up his first full recruiting cycle at Kansas after being hired late in last year's cycle. The goal was to get some of the nation's best JUCO talent in order to pull off a quick fix rather than wait for high school talent to develop over a few years. Will it work?

Charlie's problem didn't have to to with quality of recruits (at least on the O-side). More due to schematic failings.

Load up on the JUCOs like you loaded up on empty calories.

Looks like someone needs to build him a bigger belt.

Agreed; he ran a good offense at ND, but no D.
He also didn't understand the difference between coaching college-age adolescents/really young men and coaching professional adults. Some coaches can make the distinction, but CW didn't.
He is a superior NFL Offensive Coordinator, but wants to be a college HC. Sometimes people have a problem understanding their strengths, and their limitations.
CW is becoming sort of a sad story.
