A coach, a quarterback, and a shared moment: Clemson stands in the spotlight

It’s true that as recently as the back end of the Charlie Weis era, Notre Dame football wasn’t particularly relevant. However, if Notre Dame falls into a ditch, history has shown that the football program quickly extricates itself from that unfavorable position and — like Touchdown Jesus — rises again in an Easter of the gridiron. For Clemson University, there was no quick...

What to watch in the Big 12 this weekend?

Key storylines to follow in the five games involving Big 12 teams this weekend: Oklahoma State at Texas We’ve reached the point where people in Austin are talking about a home loss to California in terms of moral victories.

Former Notre Dame coach blames failures at school on ‘ambitious’ assistants

There are probably some former coaches that should keep their mouths shut about past experiences and schools they drove into the ground. Charlie Weis is one of those people. Weis was so bad that Notre Dame and Kansas are paying him millions of dollars NOT to coach at either school anymore. Yet, Weis wants you to know it wasn’t his fault that his time in South Bend was such an...

Florida President Overheard Discussing Next Offensive Coordinator: “I Don’t Want Another Charlie Weis”

The major failing of Will Muschamp’s tenure at Florida was his inability to field a competent offense to match what was a very good Gators defense. From 2011-2014, Florida’s offenses finished 71st, 78th, 113th, and 56th. Former Notre Dame, and most recently, Kansas head coach Charlie Weis was the offensive coordinator of that 2011 team, and he clearly didn’t leave a great impression...

Dreadful Offensive Numbers Forced Kansas to Fire Charlie Weis

Kansas football did what it had to Sunday, firing Charlie Weis just into his third season as head coach. Why Make the Change Now? Make no mistake about it: this is something KU had to do right now. Sure, it’s usually not a good thing for a program to terminate its coach in the middle of a season, with eight games remaining on the schedule. However, sometimes a leadership change...

Many also mentioned the crowd at Memorial Stadium, which had an attendance of 36,574.  The 58-year-old coach was...
