Saturday was hard. It was disappointing. It was embarrassing. Mistakes were made, at all levels.

Navy DID NOT embarrass Notre Dame. Notre Dame embarrassed Notre Dame. Kudos to Navy on their win, and good luck for the rest of the season.

I am here for one reason. I want to express my desire ( though it really wont matter) to not worry about who will be coaching football at Notre Dame next year, until next year. Whether I think Weis needs to resign, be fired, step down to OC does not matter. Do you think Swarbrick reads B/R daily? Or Weis? My guess is probably not.

True fans will support their TEAM in bad years as well as good, right? Since when did being a coach mean that you are not a part of the team? If there is a change at the end of the year, then so be it. If there is no change, then hopefully we still have Jimmy and Co and a decent shot at a BCS bowl. But, for now at least, lets spend our energy cheering for our team, not berating the coaches.
