Matt Tait's Tweetcap from Nov. 18

Matt Tait's Tweetcap from Nov. 18 by Matt Tait

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

‪#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

‪#KUfball RB James Sims named Big 12 co-offensive player of the week for his 211-yard, 3 TD performance vs. WVU... Shared w/ Baylor QB Petty

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...
