Dancing in the Ruins: Charlie Weis, Brandon Weeden, recruiting news, and more.

  (Dancing in the Ruins is SWRT's look at the Big XII Conference. Or at least what's left of it.)  

At left: Gobekli Tepe. Believed to be the oldest known site on Earth dedicated to religious practices.

Kansas gets "deep cleaning" from Charlie Weis.
No, this has nothing to do with "shower discipline." It's more like the Jayhawks' new head football coach getting rid of the ne'er-do-wells on the roster. (The Topeka Capital-Journal)

Kickstart My Heart.
Former BYU QB Jake Heaps hopes to get his college football career back on track after transferring to Kansas. He'll have to wait a year to do that, thanks to NCAA regulations. (The Daily Herald)

 Age Ain't Nothin' but a Number. 
Dave Sittler Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden's shouldn't be a factor in where the 28 year-old is drafted. (The Tulsa World)

Double your pleasure, double your fun. 
Iowa State lands a pair of from commitments from defensive back Damein Lawry of Texas, and linebacker Darius White of Florida. (The Des Moines Register)

With Six You Get Eggrolls.
Six members of Texas' 2012 recruiting class have already enrolled for classes in Austin. (The Austin American-Statesman)

Sympathy for the Devil Willie Martinez.
John Hoover & Gurein Emig want you to take a moment to feel sorry for former Oklahoma defensive coordinator Willie Martinez, who resigned/was fired to make way for new DC Mike Stoops. Martinez earns the dubious achievement of being the first person ever fired by Sooner head football coach Bob Stoops.
