Weis announces dismissal of D-Lineman Julius Green

Advertisement

Kansas University football coach Charlie Weis announced Tuesday via a press release that defensive lineman Julius Green had been dismissed from the team for violating team rules.

The announcement came following the Jayhawks’ fourth of 15 spring practices. It was the second day in which the Jayhawks were allowed to practice in full pads.

Kansas will return to practice Thursday for another day of spring drills.

Green, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound red-shirt freshman from Houston, joined the Jayhawks as a defensive end last spring and red-shirted to add weight. Last week, when Weis released KU’s first spring depth chart, Green appeared as a second-string guy but was listed at defensive tackle.

After struggling to find solid play along the defensive line throughout the 2011 season, the Jayhawks have added several new defensive linemen to the roster in the offseason, both tackles and ends.

Weis attends title game

Weis returned to Lawrence for practice Tuesday afternoon one night after traveling to New Orleans to take in the national championship basketball game between Kansas and Kentucky at the Superdome.

Weis, who has made it clear that he is a huge fan of college hoops, showed up for Monday’s title game decked out in KU gear and did an interview with KU radio broadcasters during the pregame.

It's unfortunate to lose a d-lineman as we all know how thin KU has been at that position, but I'm sure Coach Weis is plenty concerned about winning games and did what he felt was best for all involved.

I wonder if Weis feels pressure from all of the success Turner Gill had here.

As KSU fan, Weis is sounding more and more like Ron Prince every day. Prince like to throw his weight around too and then brag about like a stupid fat prom date.

No issue with disicipline.

But look at Bill Snyder. If he done this, no one would have figured it out until they notice the dude was gone and even then Snyder would just refuse to comment.

Internal stuff stays inside.....

Are you kidding me!!!!! Don't compare Coach Weiss to Gill after 4 days of Spring ball. I don't believe we have seen lack of conditioning, lack of academics, and lack of effort as we saw during the last 2 years.

Anyone know of a source of info on how spring practice is going ? How Crist and Heaps are looking and do they have any receivers ? Crist has a cannon of an arm if they can protect him and he has a pitch and catch buddy this sould be a fun season .Someone should be filing daily reports on the spring practices .

Charlie actually enforces rules unlike the round ball coach.

I believe Brad Thorson was kicked off of the Wisconsin team for disciplinary reasons. He ended up being a model student athlete (from what we are able to see) so I hope Green can make the same transition on his new team.

Good football programs demand discipline. They do not mess around. Gundy let several very good players go from the squad about 3 years ago for violating team rules. It affects the program in the short term, but in the long term it tends to produce positive results. The players understand the rules and know the consequences. This action by Wies does not concern me.

Freaking great. Here we go...watching D-linemen drop like flys...just like the past several seasons. This is not the position group to be losing players.

Weis predicted a KU victory in overtime during the pep rally on Monday in New Orleans. Too bad he was wrong.
