Charlie Weis has been waiting for a signature moment, one that he could look back upon as the time when his rebuilding job at Kansas finally moved to a different level.
He thinks it just may have come on a sun-splashed Saturday afternoon.
The Jayhawks were tied 10-all with Louisiana Tech in the waning minutes of their final non-conference game. The Bulldogs were driving for a go-ahead score. Suddenly, Weis saw the ball pop out onto the artificial turf, and one of his big defensive linemen pick it up.
Instead of facing down its 23rd straight loss to a Football Bowl Subdivision team, Kansas had some hope. Just over 90 seconds later, walk-on kicker Matthew Wyman booted a 52-yard field goal as time expired to give the Jayhawks a dramatic 13-10 victory.
