High Plains Grifter

What can you say about a guy who managed to parlay the greatest loss in college football history into a deal that’s still paying him more money from Notre Dame than Brian Kelly received from the school after taking the team to the national title game?

Well, all I can say is that’s it’s a long way down from touting yourself as Mr. Decided Schematic Advantage to picking up flotsam and jetsam from the MAC.

Sadly, however things play out at Kansas, there’s likely another sucker waiting to take a shot with Weis.

    As a Bulldog living in the northeast I am a big Patriots fan and I can tell you that Weis made his reputation by coaching under Belichick and having a Hall of Fame quarterback running his offense. Somehow Fat Charlie got the credit for the Patriots success despite the obvious fact that it was Belichick and Brady that were the key players. They didn’t miss a beat after Weis left. I am baffled as to how he continues to ride their success. Glad he got a year with the Gators though. I hated them already and he just added to it.

    The fact that Weiss and Junior still seem to be highly regarded despite the dumpster fires that their careers are is simply stupefying. Apparently, these two interview well.

    Picking up that player kinds reminds you of Tater Tot at North Alabama.



    What a Country!


  5. My favorite part from the wikipedia page:

    The Irish, having lost four games in a row at Notre Dame Stadium and having a 4–2 record for the season, remained 9th in the AP Poll and dropped only three places to 12th in the Coaches Poll.

    Polls are such majestic things. Now that we finally have a playoff, I think we should find a way to use the polls to decide who gets to play in it… don’t you? Truly the greatest loss in the history of college football.

    Best post title in a while (and that is saying something). The good Senator still bringing it even while preparing for a long holiday weekend. Hat tip to you, sir.

    “Sadly….there’s likely another sucker waiting to take a shot with Weiss.” I must disagree with that, Senator. Nobody is be that stupid. At least nobody with access to enough money to pay what Weiss would want to take the job.


  8. You are still the poet of GTP. Is SOD back home with Mama?


  9. Senator, where is Scorp III?

    Am I a glutton for punishment if I hope that Weis ends up at Tech after they can CPJ?
