E.J. Gaines is Missouri's first 1st-team all-conference cornerback of the Big 12 era, first since Adrian Jones (1989) overall

A hearty congrats to E.J. Gaines and Dominique Hamilton for joining Henry Josey and Michael Egnew on the writers' All-Big 12 team. Gaines is second in the country in passes broken up, third in passes defended per game. He has been incredible, and his honors are well-deserved. Meanwhile, all Hamilton did was pull down seven tackles for loss, recover two fumbles ... and win two games by batting down passes. Kudos.

Now, I'm trying not to have too much fun with the Weis hire, simply because people are acting just as incredulously to this as they were to Frank Haith back in April (and if the season ended today, Haith would probably be national coach of the year). That said, there is no Marcus Denmon waiting to be inherited on the Kansas roster, no Flip Pressey ... hell, no Brady Quinn for that matter. Honestly, I don't know what Kansas saw in Weis at this stage in his career, and other than MONEY MONEY MONEY, I'm not sure what Weis saw in Kansas. This is as baffling (and hilarious) a hire as I've seen in a while.
