Charlie Weis says Tom Brady was nearly passed over to replace Drew Bledsoe

History could have turned out very differently had the Patriots made a slightly different decision back in 2001. That was, of course, how Tom Brady took over the role of Patriots quarterback. It happened after Drew Bledsoe was put in the hospital after a hit by Jets linebacker Mo Lewis. When it became clear that Bledsoe couldn’t play, Brady was far from an automatic choice to...

Cowser in a (pass) rush for Shrine Game spotlight

(STATS) - A player wouldn't set the all-time records for sacks and tackles for loss in the FCS without being quite athletic, obviously, but people keep telling Southern Utah's James Cowser how surprised they are by his movement and speed. The All-America defensive end will be attempting to get into the opposing backfield Saturday when he plays for the West squad in the East-West...

Charlie Weis: Tom Brady barely beat out Damon Huard to be Bledsoe's backup

Amazingly, there was a time when Tom Brady wasn’t considered a surefire Hall of Famer. In fact, there was a time when the New England Patriots weren’t even sure he was good enough to be Drew Bledsoe’s primary backup quarterback. Charlie Weis, who served as New England’s offensive coordinator from 2000 through 2004, recently threw cold water on the notion that Brady was the...

The 2016 Fiesta Bowl between Ohio State Football and Notre Dame is a legend in the making

This is a matchup of two of the most dominant college football programs in the entire country. They’re two juggernauts, two powerhouses, two of the most storied programs in the history of college football. This will be only the sixth time these two teams meet, which is astonishing considering that both of them rank in the top five winningest programs. Ohio State not only leads...

5 things to know about Ohio State heading into the 2016 Fiesta Bowl

It’s hard to imagine that we live in a world in which Ohio State and Notre Dame have met on the gridiron only five times during their long histories. Both programs will meet for the first time since 2006 — on a stage very familiar to both programs: the Fiesta Bowl in suburban Phoenix, where Jim Tressel’s Buckeyes edged out Charlie Weiss’ Domers nearly 10 years ago.

Beaty making no excuses for Jayhawks' 0-12 season

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- It would have been easy for David Beaty to make excuses this season.The team he inherited at Kansas had just over 60 scholarship players, about 20 below the NCAA limit. It had endured six straight losing seasons. The dearth of talent left by Charlie Weis would have made it hard for any team to find some wins.Yet he never took the easy way out. He never used those...

Brian Kelly’s work with Notre Dame this season should not be overlooked

Why Brian Kelly is the most underrated head coach in college football

Culture beats scheme. That’s what Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly preaches day in and day out, and it is a key reason why the 2015 Irish are 9-1. The 4th-ranked team in the nation downed Wake Forest 28-7 on Saturday, and with just two games remaining, Notre Dame all but controls its own destiny to make the College Football Playoff.

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...

Charlie Weis Gunt ‘O the Day

In this wholly original idea for a new feature I would like to point your attention to something breathtakingly beautiful. This is not some leftist smear campaign against an American patriot and presidential frontrunner.

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...
