Charlie Weis Is All Kinds Of Classy

November 9, 2009 – 1:15 pm by Ryan Phillips


Following his team’s devastating 23-21 loss to Navy this weekend, the Round Mound of Clown, Charlie Weis decided it was a great time to throw one of his players under the bus.

Nose tackle Ian Williams was apparently quoted as saying that the Irish were out-schemed on defense by Navy. Which, if you watched the game, they were. Notre Dame was also out-schemed on offense, special teams, the sidelines and the walk to the stadium.

According to the South Bend Tribune, Chunky Chucky was none to pleased by the comments.

“I think that question was presented to Ian and it was also presented to (safety, defensive captain) Kyle McCarthy,” Weis responded Sunday. “And from what I understand, Kyle McCarthy’s answer was quite difference. He said it had nothing to do with the scheme. So there’s a reason one guy’s a captain and one guy’s not.”

Wow, what a dick. Seriously, C.C. Weis, you’re going to throw a player under the bus after your team looked like dog sh*t against a service academy at home? Really?

Compare the Cholly Fat Man’s response to what Pete Carroll had to say after his team’s embarrassing 47-20 loss to Oregon on Oct 31. Carroll took full responsibility for the defeat and said the scheme he and his coaches developed was completely flawed. Despite the fact that the Trojans tackled like a roster full of punters that night, Carroll put the responsibility for the worst beating of his tenure squarely on the shoulders of himself and his staff.

What Carroll displayed that night is called class, a concept Weis is apparently unfamiliar with. Carroll accepted responsibility for what happened because he’s the head of the program, the face of it. He realizes that if something goes wrong¬† it’s his fault and nothing can be gained by throwing a 20-year-old college kid under the bus for something as simple as a throwaway postgame quote after a humiliating loss. Five years into his job, Weis still doesn’t realize that as a college football coach the buck should always stop with him.

Carroll (and tons of other coaches) get it, Weis doesn’t.

To borrow a bit from what Weis had to say about Williams: So there’s a reason one guy’s one of the most successful college coaches of all-time and one guy’s not.

  2. Pete did his best to throw Sanchez under a bus after he declared for the draft last year.

  3. Charlie Weis is fat, I tell you! FAT!

  4. Yeah, McD, he’s fat. But he’s also fucking clueless. Throw one of your two defensive coordinators who couldn’t figure out how to defend against the triple option under the bus, not one of the guys who was actually out there doing what he could with what the coaches gave him.

    After Saturday, I wanted to see him go. After reading that quote, he can’t leave fast enough.

  5. And, I actually saw some stupid sonuvabitch today on one of the ND boards say “We don’t want Brian Kelly. He’s pro-choice.”

    Really? We’re going to now worry about how the fucking guy votes AND what he can do on the sidelines? Christ.

  6. Booter,
    Saying someone is making a bad decision and tossing them under the bus for speaking the truth are two very different things.

    And MJ, while Brian Kelly would be a nice hire, I wouldn’t be too quick to think he’ll be all Notre Dame’s. There are a few big jobs that could be open following this year and from what a lot of people have said, Kelly might not be all that excited to head to South Bend.

    Just what I’m hearing. Though he’s sure to be the top candidate.

  7. Brian Kelly has been bandied about for a long time as Weis’ replacement, going back to Syracuse from last year.

    I just couldn’t believe that someone actually put that as one of their priorities.

  8. Who is this “Johnson” you speak of in your last bit of wisdom? While I can not wait to see Charlie gone you could at least proof read your own work while commenting on how poorly someone else is performing in their job.

  9. If you are going to write such a strongly worded blog at least have some knowledge of what you are talking about. While Weis’ comments about Williams are ridiculous anyone who has paid any attention to ND and Weis over the years knows that he is the first to take responsibility for losses (just watch his press conferences after games). There are alot of reasons to slam Weis (most of which are much more intelligent and meaningful than just calling him fat by the way) but not taking responsibility for losses is not one. Next time you want to write an article do a little research.

  10. Mike,
    You’re right, I meant Williams, for some reason I got Ian Williams confused with Ethan Johnson, another Notre Dame defensive lineman. Thanks for pointing that out. Fixing it now.
