Weis Presser Tidbits

February 13, 2009

Charlie Weis spoke to the media today and laid out some new things for program this year. Here is a short rundown of what was said…

  • Corwin Brown has been promoted to Associate Head Coach/Co-Defensive Coordinator and Defensive Backs Coach.
  • Jon TAH-NOO-TAH has been promoted to Assistant Head Coach for Defense/ Defensive Coordinator and Linebackers Coach.
  • TAH-NOO-TAH!!! will be calling the defensive plays.
  • Bryant Young was officially announced as the Defensive Graduate Assistant.
  • Romeo Crennel will not be the new Defensive Line Coach.
  • Weis said he should have a decision on the Defensive Line coach soon.
  • Weis is making himself the Offensive Coordinator and will be calling the plays.
  • Weis would not rule out coaching from the press box next year and labeled the situation as “50-50,” but on the lower end.
  • Frank Verducci was officially named Offensive Line Coach and Running Game Coordinator.
  • Tony Alford was officially named Running Backs Coach.
  • Weis mentioned that several players will have to have their tonsils removed (no shit) and may not be ready for Spring Ball, but will be ready for the Summer/Fall.
  • There is no official word from the University on which players will be returning for a 5th year in 2009.
  • Weis mentioned that the 2010 recruiting class should be about 24-25 players to get the team up to the 85 allotted amount of players.
  • Weis is feeling good after surgery on his right knee, and has postponed the surgery to his left knee that was scheduled for this month, “indefinitely.”
  • Darrin Walls is back in school and with the team, and will be ready to go in the Spring.
  • Luke Schmidt’s football career is over because of concussions.
  • Jashaad Gaines is still on a leave of absence from the University due to personal issues. Weis said the “door is open” for a return, but nothing has been decided yet.

I’ll have some commentary on these events in a day or so. I’m still waiting for my wife to give birth to our first child. She (daughter), is already not listening to us and refuses to leave the womb. So… you never know.

Bizarro And Commitment #13

May 27, 2007

Brandon Newman is Irish. The 6’1″ 305 pound nose tackle informed Coach Weis this weekend that he was coming to ND in 2008. This was during a scheduled visit to ND and a sleepover at Braxton Cave’s home. Captain Caveman has been as involved in recruiting other top talent as the Irish staff.

The Pleasure Ridge Park High (Louisville, Kentucky) standout chose ND over a host of other schools, including in-state rivals Louisville and Kentucky. There is no doubt he will be receiving even more offers now that he has committed to Notre Dame.

What makes this a truly extraordinary commit, besides being a top talent, is the fact that this is the 3rd DT committed to the Irish. O.K., the other two project more as defensive ends, but none the less this is HUGE for ND which has struggled in the past to attract top talent on the d-line, despite offering early playing time.

What world are we living in? Is this Bizarro World. Things are changing for the Irish and the hiring of Corwin Brown seems to be the catalyst. Of the 13 commits, 6 of them are on the defensive side of the ball. This is a long ways away from Ty’s days of losing out on these guys, and not filling out the depth chart. Another bizarre point; Our 13th commit last year was Taylor Dever…on December 16th. Next someone will be telling me that at the end of the season, ND will have a top 10 defense and, despite their youth and a EXCRUCIATINGLY tough schedule, the Fighting Irsh will make back to a BCS game… and win. I think I might like this world, which is looking like the glory days of old.

I need a Beer. I’m Irish.
Welcome To ND Brandon!!!

Link-O-Rama…I Just Got Off Of Work Edition.

Here is a list of some good links to check out.

  • Corwin Brown impresses Gator Nation. (BTW- If you haven’t checked out EDSBS, you are either a tool or uninformed).
  • Blue-Gray Sky stalks Charlie Weis, and proves once again that Weis is the Emperor.
  • OC Domer professes his love of Our Lady and of the Grotto as an ode to Mothers Day.
  • The “men” of BC bring us a story about Tom O’Brian. We knew he was a douche for a long time…what took you so long?
  • This is an excerpt from a real moron. Look at the date…now read the article…WOW. This guy is an idiot.I truly hope this was an error by Blogger. In any case however, I will be removing him from my blogroll and replace him with a Spartan that is worthy to be called an enemy. (If the guys at BGS don’t know about this let them know. They are being dealt with 7 months later and somehow the game hasn’t happened yet in “Spartan Bobs” head.BTW- The spelling errors in his piece are his not, mine. I noe ware my spelchek butun is at.

“A nice long look…”

Michigan State is no stranger to weird phobias and hard shit to put behind them. So it is with great amusement that I have followed the development of the image at right into a Leprechaun Lodestar for the game this Saturday. Blue-Gray Sky is a typical example. They dedicate a medium-sized column (by their standards) to warding off all of the counter-motivationals that Michigan State is allegedly imagining so as to mitigate the supposed talismanic power of “The Flag” to wake the echoes and restore some balance to the 2-7 slide against Michigan State. The Flag, you see, was a crime! No act of bad form on the Irish side may be cited to detract from the power of Flag. BGS did exhaustive research and found all the evidence wanting: No dissing about missing megaphones and certainly no pouting about pillowtalk between Charlie and Mrs. Charlie about never again surrending to Spartans. Lost in it all is an interesting question: What if Michigan State wins?If, after making such a big deal of this flag matter (which few Spartans ever cared about anyway), the Irish fail get the job done, then the flag becomes a self-inflicted monkey on the back of Notre Dame and Charlie Weis. A symbol of failure that will resurface year after year until they beat Michigan State. When and if the “Fire Charlie” websites spring up, that picture becomes worth a thousand words of evidence.BGS tries some rally-round-the-flag moments in the posting:
“I would certainly hope that each player on the Irish roster takes a nice long look at this before heading out onto the field Saturday night.” Indeed, take that look. You created this mountain out of a molehill in your own minds. You earned that look. You’ve worked hard for that look. And if you don’t get the job done, you’ll get a whole lot better view of it in the year to come.
