4th and 8 under a minute to go. In field goal range and the guy goes for it?? What was that. I loved the superman tackle the kid from Navy put on the ND QB. How does Weiss still have a job. Wilingham had the program in way better shape than Charlie does.
For the record I hate Notre Dame and they basically put themselves in a position where they have to fire Weiss or they will probably encounter a racism Lawsuit.
Charlie had them in 2 BCS games. Ty had them in the Insight.com bowl and Gator Bowl. I thought they had no business firing Ty in the first place after only three years, but things happen.
Charlie had them in two BCS games with Bradie Quinn...who was Ty's guy. Weiss undoubtedly helped in his improvement, but it was still Ty's guy. Ty went to those bowl games with the likes of Carlyle Holliday playing QB.
Charlie sure did a good job of planning for life after Bradie Quinn.
There's no doubt ND should never be 1-8. Charlie did bring in all world QB Jimmy Clausen but he's looked bad whenever he's been in. I don't think McCarney was much of a head coach but I doubt he would ever have ND be any worse than 6-6.
If someone would have told me last spring that as of November 5th Iowa State would have more wins than ND, the same amount of conference wins as Nebraska, and a victory over Iowa I would have signed for that in a heart beat.
On a side note...did anyone hear the joke that they have gone ahead with a coaching change at Notre Dame. The new coach is Charlie Iess...because there are no W's at Notre Dame...this was a lot better earlier in the year before they won 1.
