Letter to the Editor | Monday, December 1, 2008
Coach Weis said he was “taken aback” by the snowball throwing incidents at the Syracuse game. It’s funny that he should feel that way. I for one have been taken aback for the entirety of my two seasons as a Notre Dame student by this team. Since pro football dominates my hometown of New York, I didn’t know much about college ball before coming here, but I was given some impressions. Notre Dame was a premier program. They recruit the top players in the country, win things, and generally don’t embarrass the University. Perhaps the part about top recruits is correct, but I’ve seen anything but premier football under Charlie Weis. I’m not calling for his termination, just suggesting that Charlie Weis should be taken aback by how he doesn’t get top performance out of his “top recruits” rather than snowball throwing. Thankfully motivational wizards Jeff Jackson and Mike Brey will carry us through the winter.
