Charlie Weis: Once again at his disingenious/passive aggressive "best"

    What a goddamn twit.


    Weis admits he got "feelers" last week from NFL teams interested in hiring him. But no, Charlie has no interest in going to the NFL or--gasp!--even using "interest" from an "NFL team" to further increase his salary at Notre Dame. So we're supposed to believe Weis, who wears his secrecy as a badge of honor, just volunteered this information for no good reason?

    Edit: Note the interesting phrasing. He says he can't go to the NFL because it would cost him money he does not have. Presumably, if someone was willing to pay him enough to buy out his ND deal, then suddenly he would have that money, yes?

    And he also says he doesn't think ND is intending to raise his deal. But hey, if you'll do it now that I've floated the idea...

    What a shit. Good to see his pious, doing-everything-by-the-book-with-no-shenanigans bullshit act spreads well beyond recruiting.

    When this guy falls, I will be one of the first ones there to laugh like hell (there's a former SportsJournalists.commer who will beat me to it).

    Fuck him and Notre Dame in general.

    You could put someone in his fat folds and it would be a passable medieval torture device.

    He's not going anywhere, because he has a 10-year contract. So why would he leave before the contract is up? That would be illegal -- breach of contract. Why would he ever do that??

    He went to the Belichick school . . . it's all good, if it's for me . . . but if it
    inconveniences me, screw you, Eric.

    You bring up some really good points BYH.
    It would be one thing if Weis just said, "I love it here, I'm really committed to doing this and I have no interest in coaching anywhere else," but he sure left a lot of baited hooks floating in the water, didn't he?
    He's smart enough to know what he's doing but too arrogant to see that the rest of can figure it out without much effort.

    And the fathers fell for the fat turd, so they're stuck.

    Sounds like he came fom the Urban Meyer school of dealing with the media.

    What else would you expect from someone who learned it all from Parcells and Belichick?

    Oh, they're probably sweetening his deal as we speak.

    This is not a stratagem that reflects well on Charlie. It's a smart one, though. The best way to keep the wolves away from his door in South Bend is to suggest he remains a sought-after commodity as an NFL head coach.

    That'll work as long as he stays in the Top 10. He starts losing more than a game or two a season, people will get real sick of it real quick.
