Members of last year’s Kansas football team that Charlie Weis called a “pile of crap” earlier this week could have taken offense at their former coach’s assessment of them.

Instead, they wholeheartedly agreed.

Weis made the comments during Big 12 media day in Dallas this week, and defensive back Bradley McDougald and fullback Toben Opurum — a captain on that Jayhawks team — said Thursday they came up with the same evaluation of a team that finished 1-11 last year.

McDougald and Opurum are trying to make the Kansas City Chiefs as undrafted free agents.

McDougald said that he didn’t think Weis was disrespecting any players, while Opurum thought that Weis may have been able to “word it differently, but that’s the type of guy he is.”
