Is anybody else enjoying every minute of the fiasco going on at Notre Dame?
Charlie Weis has managed to prove a few things in his tenure at the helm of the Fighting Irish:
1) He's inept as a head coach and a motivator.
2) He's an asshole.
3) He's a hell of a recruiter.
A little timeline, if I may.
2007: In addition to head coaching duties, Charlie Weis decides to call plays.
RESULT: 3-7 is officially the worst season in Notre Dame history. Charlie Weis decides that he had too much on his plate (no surprise there...), and decides to defer playcalling.
2008: Following a dismal offensive production in the 2008 season, culminating in a 17-0 thrashing by Boston College, Weis decides that he will again become more active in the playcalling.
RESULT: ND squeaks by Navy, get's beaten by Syracuse at home, gets completely embarrassed by USC.
December 2008: Even with possibly the most cupcake-y schedule for any major NCAA school, ND still ends up with a 6-6 record. Weis's future at ND is obviously tenuous. Despite mounting pressure, the AD decides to keep Weis on.
So, to review. Weis is head coach AND calls plays. Result: Irish lose. Weis decides to give up OC job, solely head coach. Result: Irish lose. Weis almost loses job. What does Weis decide to do?
Why, call plays of course! Ah yes, and they extend him to 2015. AWESOME!!!
It just doesn't get any better than this.
