Tweetcap from Monday, Nov. 18
With the Kansas University football team knocking off West Virginia last week to snap its 27-game Big 12 losing streak, a lot of the talk early this week was much different than it has been in past weeks.
Here's a look back at the past couple of days worth of Twitter activity, which includes some KU hoops and volleyball chatter, as well.
RT ICYMI: Iona’s Armand: ‘I’m expecting to beat Kansas’ http://zagsblog.com/articles/ionas-armand-im-expecting-to-beat-kansas/
RT Kansas keeps climbing! Up to No. 11 in the RPI this week. #RockChalk
RT “@KUsports: Tom Keegan thinks it's time for Ben Goodman to give Benny Goodman a listen: http://bit.ly/1bzZ2Nq ” @B_Good_Man #KUfball

#KUfball Monday Rewind: The day almost crept by without me getting this in; Credit Weis for changing w/ times… http://ljw.bz/IdBrue
Weis said Tony Pierson is questionable and we'll get a new update tomorrow after Weis talks with team doctors again… #KUfball
Weis said there's no update on Darrian Miller's status… And that Brandon Bourbon should get some more carries again this week #KUfball
Weis said Gavin Howard was looking for help to dump the Gatorade bucket on him and couldn't find many volunteers… #KUfball
Weis said winning vs. WVU was nice hurdle to clear & he wants to go get a road win… Adds: It's gonna be tough sledding up there… #KUfball
Weis said it's an easy week for him b/c he can criticize players w/o worrying about them getting too low… #KUfball
Weis: it was Ben Goodman who blocked the WVU field goal… Official stats gave it to Agostinho & I heard @ least 1 other guy credited #KUfball
Weis said Sims wasn't just running hard on Saturday, "He was trying to punish people." Great way to put it… #KUfball
Weis said the high for Saturday in Ames is supposed to be 23º… Added: Factor in the wind chill and it'll probably be 0º at kickoff #KUfball
Weis said #KUfball will continue to add to passing game, but said: "If the line's continuing to control the line, there's no reason to do it
Weis said C Gavin Howard likes to talk a lot of trash on the field & had a lot of fun last week b/c can't talk trash when losing #KUfball
Weis: Damon Martin has really come along lately and looked good; Ngalu Fusimalohi has been #KUfball's most consistent lineman all season…

Weis: For the future of the program, you can't just say we're gonna win our home games. We know it'll be tough in Ames... #KUfball
Weis: Our defense, all year long, has played good enough to have won games. With Cozart on Offense, everything changes. #KUfball
Weis on Heaps: He's been great w/ Montell, but Jake is one of the most unselfish people I've ever been around… He's a competitor… #KUfball
Weis on Cozart: His athleticism helps hide some of our deficiencies… Montell's got a bright future & this was a good first step #KUfball
Weis: We still have 2 more opportunities to get rid of a couple other things on that list of things that could change the program #KUfball
Weis: Having won that game (WVU) helps us going forward and now we gotta focus on snapping road losing streak… #KUfball
Weis: As a coach, you learn that you can't have highs & lows… you gotta stay even keel. Just like players, though, you get a lift. #KUfball
Weis: Psychologically, I think WVU victory is a very, very big lift for our players. #KUfball

Didn't Tweet during the game but can't let tonight pass w/o props for former #KUfball LB Steven Johnson. Played big in a huge moment...
