If it weren't a done deal after losing at home to the University of Connecticut it is definitely a done deal after losing a halftime lead and then the game to the Stanford Cardinal tonight.
It is the firing of Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis.
America's team, subway alumni and all that truly means something. Notre Dame is a small university in a small town that has got big props for a century because of their prowess on the football field.
Charlie Weis has changed that. He will be given a going away pressie of about 15 000 000 and then they will hire somebody from somewhere else and say a novena that Mr. New Coach is the right coach.
My money is on Brian Kelly, a good Irish name that, head coach of the University of Cincinnati Bearcats. Mr. Kelly has taken a program that never did squat into the top ten in like three seasons. In fact after beginning the season unranked in all polls, Mr. Kelly's Bearcats have gotten off to a hot start, hitting as high as #5 in the BCS Standings and have yet to lose a game. They still have an outside shot at reaching the BCS National Championship game.
Bye bye Charlie.
