ND had 9 total yards of offense in the first half. Not good Weis.
Any reader of Dreadnaught knows this is not a Notre Dame blog. The Men of Troy are my team. Thus, if you are a Domer you may want read this post with that in mind. But, be it known, I have nothing but respect for Notre Dame fans. I have been to South Bend and watched games at the Coliseum and without exception found the Irish fans to be knowledgeable, humble in victory, and sportsmanlike in defeat.
You deserve a better coach, and much better person than Charlie Weis. He is a petulant Jersey mall rat and wannabe tough guy.
His overall record is 28-21, with only 8 victories with teams that finished the seasons with records better than .500.
He brags of his vast football acumen and his dominance with the Patriots in the NFL. I am convinced that my Bulldog Dreadnought could win in the NFL with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. And Dreadnought is a great dog, but not all that smart.
Weis has coached talented players at Notre Dame, just look at his recruiting classes.

Gladwell’s writing concentrates on the social sciences and are written for the layman. Here is some Q&A about his new book:
1. What is an outlier?
“Outlier” is a scientific term to describe things or phenomena that lie outside normal experience. In the summer, in Paris, we expect most days to be somewhere between warm and very hot. But imagine if you had a day in the middle of August where the temperature fell below freezing. That day would be outlier. And while we have a very good understanding of why summer days in Paris are warm or hot, we know a good deal less about why a summer day in Paris might be freezing cold. In this book I’m interested in people who are outliers—in men and women who, for one reason or another, are so accomplished and so extraordinary and so outside of ordinary experience that they are as puzzling to the rest of us as a cold day in August.
2. Why did you write Outliers?
Washington DC Has Plan To Fix All Its Problems: Rename A Street "Taxation Without Representation Street"
The residence of DC have a great new plan to solve all their woes: rename the portion of South Capitol Street between N Street and Potomac Avenue “Taxation Without Representation Street.”
That should do it. No more problems in the District.
This should help your rate of HIV/AIDS infection, which is the highest in the nation. (128.4 cases per 100,000 people, compared to 14 cases 100,000 people for the rest of the United States)
Murders that “are the second-leading cause of premature deaths among the District population as a whole . . .” are no longer a problem.
A 6th-place ranking in a ranking of the most dangerous cities in the United States, is no longer an issue.
And, some of the worst public schools in the nation. Fixed.
Now, let’s go get those Vietcongs!
