LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas coach Charlie Weis had crews working all week to clear the snow from the field so the Jayhawks can start spring practice Tuesday - with the weather still feeling very much like winter in Lawrence.
The Jayhawks went 1-11 last season, their first under Weis, and have only one conference victory the past two years.
Weis started laying the foundation for this season at the end of last one, taking players aside during the finale against West Virginia and challenging them to do better this year.
BYU transfer and former highly touted recruit Jake Heaps is expected to take over at quarterback for the Jayhawks. He should have a solid running game to work with as backs James Sims and Tony Pierson return.
