Kansas vs. West Virginia: Charlie Weis praises Tavon Austin, WVU offense

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE

Kansas Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis spoke highly about the West Virginia offense in the Big XII coaches teleconference this week.

Kansas Jayhawk head coach Charlie Weis had strong words of praise for the West Virginia Mountaineers offense, and specifically for wide receiver Tavon Martin.

Weis marveled at the play the Mountaineers run where Martin is in motion and tips the shotgun snap forward to quarterback Geno Smith. Austin's athletically ability on that play really impressed Weis, especially when West Virginia ran that play against the Iowa St. Cyclones. Weis told the media in the Big XII coaches teleconference:

"He just outruns everyone. That's not coaching now. I'm sure everyone would like to sit there and stand in line and take credit for that, but that's just unusual talent, unusual speed."

Weis complemented the Mountaineer offense as an entire unit, stating that their offense is "as dynamic an offense as you could possibly go against."

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen still holds a high level of respect for Charlie Weis, even though Kansas is 1-10 on the season and have yet to win a game in conference play this season. Holgorsen told the media in the teleconference that his team will have a "major schematic disadvantage" against the Weis-lead Jayhawks.

Smith, Austinand the rest of the West Virginia seniors play their last game at home against the Jayhawks on Saturday, Dec. 1. Kick-off is at 2:30 p.m. ET with coverage on FSN.
