I hate this stupid argument that we will turn into Notre Dame if we fire RR. Firing an unsuccessful coach is not the same thing as tossing someone out after a 9-3 season (Nebraska). What did ND do that was so wrong for firing their coaches? Willingham deserved the axe after he gave up on recruiting and bowl games for two years in a row, and Weis didn't deserve the fifth year he got (and that's not just in hindsight).
There are also a lot of factors that differentiate us from ND, such as NOT BEING NOTRE DAME. If I believed in god(s), I'd thank them for than.
