Charlie Weis, gone but not forgotten.

Charlie Weis was fired by Kansas Sunday. I don't suppose it is a great shock. But I for one will miss him. Outside of the many photoshops and gifs I made of him over the years, he was also good for saying and doing some of the strangest things. While his teams "almost never" did anything on the field, it was always one of my favorite weeks since we joined the Big 12.

It's not always easy to come up with a goofball story that has nothing to do with the game on the field. But somehow, Charlie was always a great inspiration. If you will allow me, I'd like to share a few things you may have forgotten.

For instance, will Valentine Day cards of the Big 12 ever be the same again? I think not

Who's a sexier Professor Umbridge? No one.

And finally, you'd think a big athletic guy like Vince Barnes would have a big dingus. Nope, just a little...(checks word of the day calendar)...fallacy. No one could sell Harry Crumb like Charlie. Well, maybe Mark Mangino. But no one else.

And this all day long.
