The time has come

Letter to the Editor | Sunday, November 23, 2008

As much as we desperately want to see this team succeed under Charlie Weis, the lackluster performance in games that no Notre Dame team should ever lose shows that this will simply never happen. We have an opportunity in the next few years to be a premier team with the top line talent that has come to this school. If we were to allow them to waste their talents under an ill-prepared coaching staff, it would do terrible, lasting damage to this school’s reputation as a top line program. So there is only one course of action we must take. I have decided that I will donate my $320 in flex points to the athletic department to pay for a new coach. If you all do the same, we will ensure that Notre Dame becomes the team we all want it to be. Go Irish!
