Edition 65 “Go Home Charlie”

So once again the talk is stirring about the future of Notre Dame Head Coach Charlie Weis.  This seems to have been a reoccurring theme for the past 2 years. To be frankly honest, I wish the discussion would come to an end.  The man is 6 and 4 with a team that has arguably the best offensive talent in the country.

In my opinion, he has the best QB, receiver, and tight end in the country.  Yet he is only 6 and 4 with a pretty powder puff schedule by Notre Dame Irish standards.  Not to mention he lost to Navy this year.  Most people expected this team to win 10 or 11 games and be in the BCS Bowl talk.  Weis overall has done a horrific job and has the same winning percentage as his predecessor Ty Willingham at .583 (Willingham was fired).

Notre Dame has the funding and boosters who care enough to buy this guy out.  So buy him out for the many millions that it will cost and get your big name coach to take his place.  Unfortunately, the big name guy coming in will have to do some massive rebuilding without the services of the “Golden One,” Golden Tate, and arguably the most pro ready QB in college football Jimmy Claussen.  I would be shocked if either of these guys were back next season.

Weis had his strongest years with guys that were left over from the Willingham era.  He has had more than enough time to rebuild this program and has miserably failed.  The great thing for Weis though, by getting fired he will get 9 or 10 million and get to eat all the cheeseburgers his heart desires.

Best of luck to Charlie and I hope to see the Notre Dame program get back on track with its storied past.  Please do not eat too much while on your leave and clog your arteries Charlie..

I guess not all of Belichick’s former employees are winners..

Stay tuned for Edition 66.

  1. pretty strong points. the only thing i want to point out is that while Weis and Willingham do have similar w/l % (which I agree should be grounds for dismissal), Weis has performed much better than Willingham on the recruiting trail.

    Unlike the bare cupboard Weis had coming in (barring of course the one solid recruiting class from Willingham following his first season with Brady Quinn, Zbikowski, Samardjiza, Victor Abiamiri, Trevor Laws, and Jeff Sullivan, all of whom are now collecting professional checks), the next coach will walk into a team dripping with talent. Even if Clausen and Tate leave, the coach will still have Michael Floyd, Teo (assuming he doesn’t go on a mission), and another 5 star QB recruit in Dayne Crist. The future still looks bright

    • Mr. Gedert..those are definitely some valid points..but it will be tough to replace Clausen or Tate no matter how good these recruits are. both Clausen and Tate are no brainer first rounders in my eyes. And recruiting is a part of coaching, but it is what you do with those recruits that is important (aka winning). I just feel like Weis has thoroughly dissapointed Irish nation and they deserve and expect results there. You have to win more than he has done to keep the job at a place like ND.

  2. A microcosm of Charlie Weis at Notre Dame…these kids are definitely tools, but they do make a similar/valid point…

  3. Pretty harsh Josh. BTW, I believe ND lost to Navy, not Army? Navy has a far better team.

  4. I agree that Chuck Weis is not getting the job done….If there is no one qualified to replace him however, he will get another chance to get things right.

    • Deez,
      There will be qualified people to replace him. The Notre Dame job is a dream job for many, even those in big time positions now. Should be interesting to see what happens as the season concludes..but I will say bye bye to Charlie now..

  5. Does anyone feel Bill Parcells or Joe Montana has a chance of being named?
