KU notes: Opener will set the tone

Kansas football coach Charlie Weis is generally a man with a plan. And for Weis, this means the Jayhawks’ season-opening game against South Dakota State could take on a little extra significance. The game, Weis says, could set the tone for a program that needs some momentum. “I think we’d better get off to a fast start or we’re going to have a long year,” Weis said. “And I think everyone else wants to look at the 12-game schedule. I want to look at one. I have a one-game schedule, and it’s South Dakota State. It’s been a little while here since we came, and in the first game of the year, we had a very convincing performance, and that’s what my intent is in the opening game.”
