I don’t give two hoots about college football. Couldn’t care less about Notre Dame’s 6-5 record, either. But Irish talk is practically unavoidable living in Chicago.
Nonetheless, I was a fan of Charlie Weis despite his disappointing record at South Bend (35-27). I thought the fat man represented the program well, but of course, winning is the bottom line…and ol’ Charlie didn’t cut it. And that, people, reminds me very much of Dusty Baker’s tenure with the Cubs.
