Sizing Up Media Day… Uno

August 8, 2009

I stated in the last post that I would give a little commentary for the events that took place on media day. So let’s bulletpoint this motherfucker:

  • That was the first press conference from Weis that I thought was as legit as it gets. No bullshit, no cheesy bullshit, and refreshing. Weis has always spoke too much at these things- so to sit there and watch him give short answers and Tresselesque vanilla ones for the others was fascinating. He is starting to finally get, what a Head Coach, especially at Notre Dame, is supposed to say. Not a whole lot but the obvious facts. Bravo Chuck.
  • There was only one direct question about the defense outside of the inevitable Te’o question. It was, “Talk about the toughness of your defensive line, how they’ll be against the run this year?” That was it. I doubt Weis would get into any kind of real depth about the defensive side of the ball, but don’t you have to ask something about the the secondary, and more about the linebackers (other than Te’o)? Give me something on Sergio- DAMN!
  • The moves along the offensive line are encouraging. Something had to be done. However, you should keep an eye out for Wenger in the near future. Yes he is taking a back seat, but this might put him in a different mindset and push him into the player he is supposed to be. I am glad that Trevor Robinson is going to be on the field more. He is probably our best lineman.

And that’s about it. Notre Dame was ranked #23 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

Here’s a few videos with Randy Hart and Frank Verducci:

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.
