Don't Fire Charlie Weis
Charlie Weis is the greatest thing to happen to College Football. 1. All the Notre Dame "fans" were ecstatic after Weis was hired. 2. Weis has failed miserably as head coach of the Irish. 3. Notre Dame fans got what they wanted and are miserable. 4. The vast majority of America takes great pleasure in Notre Dame's failures and the misery of their arrogant fans. 5. Notre Dame bandwagoners perpetually think "next year" is their year. Why deny them If Charlie Weis is fired it’s unlikely another coach as incompetent as Weis can be hired. Weis must not be fired!
