In the wake of this week's NCAA evisceration of Penn State's football program, there was one piece of news that had college coaches across the land licking their proverbial lips: Penn State players can transfer to other universities without losing playing eligibility. This means that coaches at big football programs will likely vulture the best players on the Nittany Lions squad.

During Tuesday's Big 12 media day in Dallas, KU first-year coach Charlie Weis told USA Today that it's safe to assume he'll pick through the goods in Happy Valley.

"I think that, first of all, you have to be respectful of (Penn State) coach (Bill) O'Brien and the people who are trying to make good of a bad situation. But at the same time, the rules are the rules," he told the paper. "And there's several players that, when the dust settles, I think there will be several players that entertain the thought of going somewhere else, especially the way it was presented to them."

And when asked about the Penn State mess in general, Weis wisely kept his trap shut, unlike Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel.

Weis responded in perfect fashion to prodding on the situation: "My feeling on that is that no one wins. Everyone loses. There's no winner in that situation. So I prefer not to take it any further than that. It's not a good situation, and no one won. There are no winners there."

And, on an unrelated note, Weis had other things on his mind before going through the gauntlet of media day interviews:
