Against USC, Michigan and Ohio State last year his decisions to go for it on fourth down forsaking sure points via a field goal cost him dearly.
    I COMPLETELY agree with you on this one. I was thinking the exact same thing while watching the game Saturday night. He cost his team points and field position--big time--in that game. Boneheaded.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    That said. ND doesn't deserve to go to a BCS bowl this year, either. But there are many ranked teams that have light schedules. And OSU should handle whoever they match up against, they have an incredibly talented team.
    Michigan played Ohio State very well. They didn't win, but they proved their worth as a top team.

    Seriously, I agree with you Dom. Seeing as I went to OSU and grew up in Columbus, I am and always will be a Buckeye fan. That won't change. But, beyond OSU, I don't really care that much for college football. The biggest reason is the completely idiotic way that the college game determines its national champion. I can't stand the conjecture and seemingly arbitrary way that the Powers That Be determine who, exactly, is a good team and who should be kicked to the curb. No such nonsense in the NFL, and the game is better for it.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Will a mediocre third season get him fired like the previous coach? Somehow I doubt it.

    Not too worried - they had a top 3 recruiting class last year and the number 1 recruit in the nation on the way this year. They might be down a bit next year, but they'll still be OK.

    And no, he won't be fired. Willingham was fired for two straight mediocre seasons and poor recruiting. Notre Dame has very little team speed and only slightly better than average talent. Its why I always laugh at people on here talking about Brady Quinn only be so good because of all the "great" talent around him. He had great receivers, but thats it. Marginal OLine and below average defense. Yes, Willingham got some talent, but it was Weis who brought out that talent. Example, Samardzija had 5 catches before Weis arrived.

    Puffy, how are the Notre Dame followers looking at the arrival of Jimmy Claussen? I have seen him play games on ESPN and I think he is going to need alot of time to adjust to the college game. His team is superior across the board to the teams they lined up against. That running back of his is a certified stud, and his recievers run wide open. Are they thinking he starts right away?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I remember at the end of the 2004 season. Cal was ranked #5 in the country and was passed over for the Rose Bowl by Texas. You have never heard such pissing and moaning. They went to the Holiday Bowl and got their butts handed to them by #21 Texas Tech 45-31. And the game wasn't as close as the score indicated.

    I don't think so - they got two of the top 10 QB's last year and they will have a year under their belt and the three of them will probably be compteting to see who wins the job. Knowing Weis I think he will pick the one who impresses him most, not taking into account experience.
