Former Jayhawks address football team about facing struggles

Three former Jayhawks with rings addressed the Kanss football team on Friday and Saturday. Cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris and offensive lineman Anthony Collins delivered much the same message.
"They told us, enough is enough," Kansas quarterback Montell Cozart said.
The three players, who were part of the Jayhawks' Orange Bowl championship season of 2007, reminded the current Kansas players that the program had struggled before. There has been a bowl season in 2005 but not much before that.
"They told us when they were first there, KU wasn't much of a powerhouse program, and took a few leaders," Cozart said.
The message has been part of the Jayhawks' mind-set throughout the spring, Cozart said. When the team breaks a huddle or finishes a practice, the chant is, "It's time."
--The only passing touchdown of Saturday's spring game was delivered by a Bishop Miege player, but it wasn't Cozart.
Wide receiver Tre' Parmalee, a former Stag, threw a 26-yard strike to wide receiver Andrew Turzelli in the second quarter that opened the game's scoring.
"I said in the locker room after the game we finally found a Bishop Miege quarterback who can throw," KU coach Charlie Weis said while laughing. "I had some fun with that one. Tre' got on Montell pretty good."
--As is often the case with Weis, he didn't sugarcoat previous performances. Asked about the team's passing game, Weis harkened back and blasted away.
"We all know the last two years our passing game has basically been inept," Weis said. "It's been inept for a number of reasons. The bottom line is we've done a bad job of moving and scoring via the pass."
But that was his way of praising the pass catchers.
"If you had to say what position on the team in the spring rose the most, it was clearly the wide-receiver position," he said.
As for the Jayhawks' expectations this year, Weis didn't hold back.
"When you set high expectations you have to back it up," Weis said. "I know more than anyone else, 1-11 and 3-9, I've got it. We're at the stage now, I think this team has a lot higher expectation than what we've done the last couple of years."
