Look for Charlie Weis to start Montell Cozart and let him finish what he starts


Weather forecasts call for south winds of 27 mph at kickoff and staying close to that throughout the game.

Not that Kansas football coach Charlie Weis needed another reason to hand the football to true freshman quarterback Montell Cozart and let him win it or lose it without feeling as if he’ll be replaced by Jake Heaps at the first sign of trouble, Mother Nature drove home the point.

At least half the time, passing the ball will be extremely difficult. Defenses geared to stop the run have a tougher time doing that with fast, elusive Cozart at QB than with the immobile Heaps.

Look for Weis to not only give Cozart his first start for today’s 11 a.m. kickoff against West Virginia. Look for Charlie to let the young talent finish what he starts. I’ll be surprised if the coach does otherwise.

West Virginia is better against the run than the pass, but Kansas runs better than it passes, so that’s a push. The weather breaks the tie.
