"Out of his league" (SI's Mandel on Charlie Weis)

    Bullshit. Weis hasn't taken responsibility for a thing.

    His press conferences consist of him saying "I take full responsibility," and then explaining in interminable detail how once again the stupid players fucked up his brilliant game plans, which accounted for every possible variable, but were sunk by incompetent execution.

    Note also yet another Willingham whine in the quote above -- "the volume of numbers in the upper classes."

    That's on you now, Chuckles. It was up to you to develop some of those guys into usable players, instead of running them off.

    "We don't make those in practice,"

    Weis in the post-game presser after the Navy loss when asked why he didn't send the kicking unit out at the end of regulation.

    Thank you, Corporal Obvious.

    Look for Big Boy to waddle out of South Bend for an NFL job.

    Agreed, Bob Stoops won a national title at Oklahoma in his second season with a huge number of John Blake's players.

    John Blake was a much better recruiter than Willingham, in fairness.

    How the fuck does Notre Dame -- and I know they suck -- average 218 yards in offense a game.. those are bottom of the Sunbelt/MAC honors...

    Just IMAGINE how bad they would be if they didn't have a DECIDED SCHEMATIC ADVANTAGE.

    Good article. What's that Southern sayin' about what makes a good coach? He can take his and beat yours, or take yours and beat his. Or something like that.

    Poor Bum. Never did get that door kicked in.

    But I'd take him as my team's coach over Weiss any day.

    Decent reporting and analysis saved this column from being a complete piling-on, save the second and third points in this embarassing graf. Where the hell was the editor?

    "Meanwhile, the 80,000-plus spectators who pack Notre Dame Stadium every week -- many of them traveling great distances to be there -- have wasted untold dollars and energy supporting a woefully prepared team, not to mention the immeasurable humiliation their university has suffered. Lord only knows how much money NBC has lost on its investment."

    Poor ND, poor NBC. We're supposed to feel sorry for those schmucks?
