On to more important things...

Before the big Michigan vs. Notre Dame showdown this weekend I want to say something I might have already said on this site but it bears repeating: everybody on ESPN falls all over themselves to lick Charlie Weis's shoes, calling him a genius for what he did last year in his first year as the golden dome's coach. THey are a legitimate contender for the national title this year. They are a great football team.

And they owe it all to Ty Willingham. Charlie Weis should mail Willingham a box of chocolates, a bottle of champagne, and a ring should they win.

It really pisses me off. Willingham got run out of town two seaons ago. Last year, the year when everyone on the team had been recruited by Willingham (when it truly was his team), they were nearly unstopable. But Willingham didn't win fast enough for the alumni and so, over the objections the University president as being against the spirit of Notre Dame, Willingham was dumped. It was shameful. It showed that Notre Dame truly does *not* hold itself to a higher standard. They are slaves to their alumni and winning is more importnat than integrity.

And it was racist. If Willingham were white he would have been given more time. There's no way you can seriously argue otherwise.

Yes, I've said it before, but it still makes me mad.
