a terrible blight on our fine country
From EDBS's twitter: Charlie Weis dumps the bilge water early on the way out to sea: http://sbnation.com/e/951664
From the Link:
Q: Is it frustrating to you Pete Carroll, for example, portrayed in one way…
CW: 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 okay 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.
Seriously, Charlie: WTF? how did this turn into a "pete carroll sleeps with a grad student question? This man is unbelievable.
As usual, The Onion is hilarious. They only have a headline and a picture and it's great.
"Fired Charlie Weis Cleans Out His Desk"
(And here's an oldie but a goodie from before the season, in case you missed it: http://www.theonion.com/content/news/small_unathletic_walk_on_injures_9)
A picture is worth a 1000 calories...
File this one under 'it would really suck'. A few years back I despised Harbaugh for his comments against UofM. I completely sided with Hart but since I have really appreciated how good of a coach Jim Harbaugh is. And if things get worse here and RR does indeed go I wouldn't mind seeing ole Jim at the healm (god if it were ever between him and Miles it shouldn't be close, though, that is not at all realistic).
Anyway, in the ESPN front page article that reported Weis (one 'S') was fired they listed Harbaugh as a possible candidate for the position. Okay, this is ESPN whom we all know is, um, reliable, right. But still, Jim Harbaugh is probably the last person that I would want to see coaching in South Bend.
I just read this is the Ny Daily News. Weiss is out at Notre Dame:
It was ridiculous to watch Notre Dame fail over and over this season. I almost felt bad. Sadly, it is starting to seem more and more likely that Charlie Weis will get canned by those Golden Domers. I kind of want him to stay for the chance that he continues to mess up, but I also hate the guy. I realize everybody will want to give their sentimental goodbyes, so I'll give you that chance. Personally, I'm not good at the whole haiku thing, but the rest of you can go for it. Charlie Weis Haikus live here.
