I find something interesting in the interminable, they-just-write-themselves jokes about Charlie Weis' girth. Believe it or not, there are fatter coaches than Charlie. Mark Mangino at Kansas is quite blobular in nature, ditto Ralph Friedgen, known as "The Fridge."
Charlie even gets plenty of jokes from Michigan fans, who hold as one of their finest Jim Brandstatter - a big dude in his own right.
So why does Charlie get it so bad? I think it has to do with attitude - Mangino can pass as a jolly fat man, and the Fridge truly did wake up some echoes at Maryland and hasn't really pissed anyone off. They certainly haven't targeted anybody or called them out, with the exception of Mangino claiming BCS tampering with the refs and Ralph shilling for UnderArmor ("NOBODY BEATS US IN OUR HOUSE!")
Meanwhile, Weis came out with the Decided Schematic Advantage, countered with "multiple personnel groups from multiple formations," and continued with "I could recruit thugs and win more," "garbage time," suing his doctors, lying about whether Jimmy Clausen was going to start, "to hell with Michigan" and on and on.
