Kansas coach Charlie Weis has preached staying the course and also is not pulling any punches when talking about his team needs to get better if they are to snap their eight-game losing streak after Saturday's 41-14 loss at Baylor.
During Monday's Big 12 coaches teleconference, Weis bluntly stated where things are when talking about the Jayhawks offense.
"If everything is just hanging on James Sims, we're going to lose, because we need to score more points," Weis said.
Kansas will get a chance to snap a two year Big 12 losing streak, Saturday when they travel to Lubbock to face Texas Tech.
So far this season, KU has been in every game but on at halftime, so there are signs of progress, especially when compared to last year, but Weis makes it clear there will be no moral victories.
"Being competitive for a half just isn't good enough," Weis said.
One bright spot for the Jayhawks, is there running game, led by James Sims, who's starting to be recognized as maybe the best running back in the conference. Sims got the job done again, Saturday, rushing for 126 yards on 21 carries, including a 59-yard touchdown in the first quarter. The running game has been the one element of the offense that has been a constant this season.
"It's helps to establish an identity of being a tougher football team," Weis said.
Weis will hold his weekly press conference Tuesday afternoon.
