Weis is so arrogant with no reason. He has informed all of the workers around the stadium and practice field to not walk in front of him, do not look at him and definitely do not talk to him. They are also not allowed to come to work early and drink coffee before beginning their day. All of this and Brey comes out and talks with the workers! Fatso Weis needs to be run out of town, er, I geuss he can't run so he needs to catch a fast taxi!

How many years are left on Weis's contract? Any chance we can buy him out and get Skip Holtz? I'm not kidding either. We need a new coach. There is lots of talent on that squad and a good coach could take advantage of it.

I've never seen so much talent look so uninspired. Also, the thing that bothers me the most is that his teams continue to come onto the field UN-PREPARED. That never happened under Lou Holtz. I'm tired of this happening and it's inexcusable.

Why does every article assume that the Irish would have lost if SDSU hadn't fumbled on the 1 inch line? ND went down the field for two scores after that, so wouldn't that make the "real" final score 21-20? Also, if the Irish hadn't fumbled on the 1 earlier, wouldn't that make it 28-20? All this talk that the Irish were "lucky" is idiotic. The Aztecs were lucky too!

Oh, and if the Irish defense recorded no sacks in this game, then someone was watching a different game than me, because I distinctly remember a huge sack on a critical play. Get your facts right, for God's sake! Plus, it's not surprising there was only 1 sack when Lindley threw every ball within 2 seconds of getting it.

Notre Dame is a very young team that will improve substantially week to week as they go through the 2008 season. They have lots of talant getting what they need, experience.

If not for that fumble - and the runner could very well have been down, no way that call is made in South Bend - SDSU goes up 20-7 and the Irish are cooked by a program with a very tenuous membership in Division I. The only people waking up the echoes are those delusional Irish fans who hear themselves moaning in their cones of silence. The greedy ND program's been irrelevant since the late 80s. Deal with it. There aren't enough service academies to use to schedule yourselves into a bowl this time.
