Charlie Weis on the Hot Seat?

A coach with great players always looks smarter than one without that talent. The 2 keys to winning in college football are 1-Get great players and 2-Teach them to become even better.

What's wrong with the Weis led Notre Dame Fighting Irish and can they compete this year?

Bill Smith: ND has depended on a hamburger chain to tell them which players are the best. That is why there are so many McDonald's All Americans on ND but the players seldom work out. A coach with great players always looks smarter than one without that talent. The 2 keys to winning in college football are 1-Get great players and 2-Teach them to become even better. ND has done very little of the first and nothing of the second key over the last 10 years.

Eric Geier: Weis just needs time to adjust to the college game and being a head coach. I think this year they will come out stronger but will still have their struggles. I predict another two to three years before the Irish are relevant again.

Ryan Leonardo: They are in a true re-building stage. Some schools are lucky enough to reload, and Notre Dame isn't one of them. The top recruits would rather go to Wisconsin, Ohio State, or Michigan State, to name a few. They don't seem to have the swagger that they used to, but Weis will be there a long time and should turn it around.

Steve Patterson: Weis has had one great class after another come into the program and last year should have been the year those players started to dominate lesser opponents but it did not happen. I don’t think a great NFL coordinator makes a great college coach unless he can inspire and relate well with the college player.
