LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- After coaching what he called a "pile of crap" last season, Kansas coach Charlie Weis is counting on an influx of junior college players to turn things around in Year 2.

The often outspoken coach made that assessment of the Jayhawks, who went 1-11 last season, during Big 12 media day in Dallas. His opinion hadn't changed, either, as this year's team prepared for the start of fall camp on Wednesday afternoon.

"How else are you going to describe it," he said.

That team had holes throughout the roster, none bigger than at quarterback, where Dayne Crist was anything but the solution Weis hoped he would be. This year's team has former BYU quarterback Jake Heaps under center, surrounded by a whole slew of transfers hoping to make an impact.
