Back in the saddle again

Remember that whole bit from Charlie Weis about how he was giving up the offensive coordinator reins so he could become more involved with the whole team, all that touchy-feely stuff?

I talked to former players and current players, and I think the biggest issue as I looked at this is if you’re playing freshmen and sophomores, it’s not the same as when you’re playing juniors and seniors. The maturity level of the players is not the same. So you can’t take for granted that 18- and 19-year olds are the same as 21- and 22-year olds as far as how you can coach them and the maturity level…”

Screw that.

He’s even contemplating staying upstairs in the booth during the game.  How Paterno-ish of him.

    Given that Weis was a much better coordinator than head coach… and given that his bowl game in the booth was probably one of his team’s better performances in the past couple years… maybe he was just never comfortable on the sideline.

    I can’t help but wonder if the guy being promoted to associate head coach will be running a lot of things that Weis can’t be bothered with while he’s diagramming plays or something.

    Maybe next year he’ll just stand out in the parking lot on gameday then the next he can stay in Ohio then….

    Charlie back in the saddle again? For the horse’s sake, hope the saddle is on a Clydesdale.

    The further away Weis is from the field, the better the Irish are.

    If they fire him, they’ll win the national championship!
