Well by now, you've heard Weis is out at ND. I'm not going to do the obvious that other media types will do today which is add salt to the wound, talking about Weis was never this, never that, yada yada. I'm going straight at the ND athletic staff that has been out of touch since Holtz "retired" from there. They are like those small towns that have one high school and that high school;s football program means everything to the high school alum and town folks. And like those small town folks, they have lost touch with reality. Back in the day, yea you're program was king but this ain't the 50s (hell not even the 80s during the Tony Rice days).
It's 2009 and the reality is ND will not be consistently on top. Like every other program (see USC, see Oklahoma, see Texas, hell even see Nebraska right now), you will have periods like this where the program is mediocre or below average. Patience, which seems to be lacking everywhere in sports these days, is a must. Too bad ya'll dumb asses will have to learn it the hard way via a $15 million dollar buyout for firing him early. You deserve everything bad that happens to that program.
Yep Thanksgiving is over Commission :-)
Yep, pretty much. Definitely was a brilliant idea to lock him up with a ten year extension after a loss. It's leadership like that from the "front office" that would instill the utmost confidence in me if I were a Domer. Suck it, Notre Dame. Suck it, harder than Vanessa Del Rio...
The crazy part is that Weis is telling folks at least 6 NFL teams have contacted him about being an NFL offensive coordinator again. Why is that an issue? Because folks like Romeo Crennel, Art Shell either had to wait many years or never were contacted by the same folks about taking over similar roles (defensive coordinator, o line coach, etc). Hmmm....
Charlie is gonna be just fine. ND is paying him out the ass, and he's gonna get a multi-million dollar coordinator job. Only in America, can abject failure make you filthy rich...
