Weis should pay

Letter to the Editor | Monday, November 12, 2007

Another home loss for the Irish. The total now stands at six for the season. In reality, the first Domer-comprised team to win inside the House That Rockne Built this fall might be the winner of the Interhall Football Championship. We can watch that game for free, unlike the games of our Division I team, which cost each Notre Dame student $217 for the season. As a finance major, I view this as a bad investment. In business, people do not continue to invest in an entity that does not produce positive returns. Approximately 11,000 students purchase a student ticket booklet each season. Current prices dictate that the student body spends roughly $2.4 million per season on football tickets. I would like Charlie Weis to regain our trust – like a fund director offering incentives – by paying for our tickets next season. His annual contract, estimated to be in the $2 million range, ideally fits this cost structure. What do you say, Charlie?
