Everyone knows Charlie Weis. Everyone knows Charlie Weis is fat. Did you do he’s a complete dumbass as well? Now you have the opportunity to gain that knowledge. Most would think his obesity, the fact he resembles a planet or that he hasn’t won shit since he left Tom Brady and Bill Belichick would be enough to keep the man quiet this off-season. You know, seeing as it was the Irish’s worst season in decades and Navy beat them for the first time since before Weis had just started waddling around? No, no, my friends, Fat Chuck (not you, Barkley) gave this gem:
“I’ve always been one never to make excuses and not blow hot air and [believe] you back your words by your performance on the field,” the Notre Dame head coach said at what appeared to be an alumni reception before or after the April 19 Notre Dame Blue-Gold game. “I think that’s the message our team is going to [follow] on September 6 with San Diego State. I think the first opportunity we’ll have to make a statement is that day.
“Then we’ll listen to Michigan have all their excuses as they come running in saying how they have a new coaching staff and those changes. To hell with Michigan.”
Hmm… so Fat Chuck has never been one to, “make excuses,” or “blow hot air,” but then says, “To hell with Michigan.” That makes a ton of sense. As a Michigan fan, I’m fully aware this could be a real rough season for first-year coach Rich Rodriguez and that last year was full of some early season disappointments. But, the Wolverines did finish last season well by getting a victory over the Florida Gators and Heisman Trophy winner Timmy Tebow. How did the Irish do in their bowl game? Oh, dammit, that’s right! They didn’t go to one. I was actually surprised ND didn’t have some sort of bowl contract, even if they did go 3-9.
In related news, the last two UM/ND scores are: 2006; UM 47 ND 21. 2007; UM 38 ND 0.
