Charlie Weis And His Comments About Pete Carroll

Weis is now backing away from the reckless comments he made about Coach Carroll.

Weis later claimed his comments were meant to be general statements about false Internet rumors and their impact on coaches’ lives.

 

These are the statements that Weis make about Coach Carroll,

“Let me ask you this question: You guys know about things that go on in different places. Was I living with a grad student in Malibu, or was I living with my wife in my house? You could bet that if I were living with a grad student here in South Bend, it would be national news.

“He’s doing it in Malibu and it’s not national news. What’s the difference? I don’t understand. Why is it OK for one guy to do things like that, but for me, I’m scrutinized when I swear. I’m sorry for swearing; absolve my sins.”

Stick A Fork In Fat Man Charlie Weis, He Is Done At Notre Dame

As mentioned on Dreadnaught here, here, here, here, and here, Charlie Weis must be fired.  Charlie lost today to UConn.  Yes, he lost to Navy and UConn in the same year.  Charlie, what happened to the the “decided schematic advantage“?

Wait, maybe you were misquoted.  You intended to say that with you as head coach, Notre Dame would have a “decided schematic disadvantage.”  That is what they have.  Take your cash, your FUPA, your barely-.500 winning percentage,  and your condescending attitude and go back to Jersey.  You are a joke!

Helmets For All College And Pro Football Teams

The Helmet Project is a very cool Website.  If you ever wondered what the helmet of your favorite college or NFL team look like in the past, just go to the site.  You can even see some made-up helmets, like Penn State with a logo.

Navy Over Notre Dame

Charlie Weis made history in 2007 by losing to Navy for the first time in 44 years.  He did it again today by losing to Navy  23 – 21.

This takes Notre Dame out of the BCS, with their third loss of the season.

This should increase the calls for Charlie Weis to be fired.  As mentioned here, here, and, here, Notre Dame needs a new coach.

Another note on the game, specifically on the coverage by NBC, the praise for Jimmy Clausen is getting worse every game.  Praising Clausen for his ability to make comeback wins in the 4th quarter is more of an indictment of Notre Dame.  They are losing for most of the quarters they play.  That is not a good thing.

Charlie Weis Claims Moral Victory After Loss To USC

Note Dame coach, Charlie “I Looked at Myself and Saw a Disaster” Weis clamed the 2009 loss to USC was a moral victory.  Irish fans have to understand that Weis can not turn this team around in just five seasons, despite the fact that his team will, in “every game . . . have a decided schematic advantage.”  You must understand, he is suffering from the poor recruiting done by Ty Willingham.

Again, you can not expect Weis to turn the program around in just five seasons.  It has taken a number of head coaches to get their teams to national championships.  Nick Saban did it in his 4th season, Pete Carroll did it in his 3rd season, Bob Stoops did it in his 2nd season, and Urban Meyer did it in his 2nd season.  Well, those are all less than the five seasons Weis has had, but it is different for Weis.  Not sure how it is different, but it is.

It can not be Charlie Weis’s fault, he is just too great of a coach.  Remember Charlie Weis making history last season by losing to Navy for the first time in 44 years.  That was also Willingham’s fault.  Don’t blame Weis.

LSU Florida Tebow Will Play For Gators

LSU TigersThe game of this Saturday is LSU v. Florida.  The latest news indicates Tim Tebow will start for the Gators.

If he’s got a 100 percent clean bill of health and the phalanx of involved parties agrees he’s fine (coach Urban Meyer said there were 12 people in the room Monday to discuss Tebow’s concussion recovery), do it. No more interested party than Bob Tebow, Tim’s father, said that if his son were cleared to play — and he stressed Thursday afternoon that the decision has not been made — he would not spend Saturday wincing at Tim’s high-impact playing style.

Dreadnaught prediction: If Tebow plays Florida wins, if Tebow is out LSU gets the win. bodog has LSU by 8 points.
