Notre Dame Is SO Bad... ("How Bad Are They?!")

andrewCorrespondent INovember 25, 2008

Listen, Syracuse has been so horrendous lately that their head coach, Greg Robinson, wasn’t even remotely surprised when he was fired last week. (CLICK HERE for the story.)

“I don’t think it really comes as a surprise to anyone. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me,” Robinson said at a news conference. 

Having said all that, Robinson *was* allowed to finish out the season as the coach, and sure enough, was able to beat Notre Dame on Saturday. 

Why am I telling you about this? Only because the Fighting Irish fans were so ticked off that they began pelting their OWN PLAYERS with snowballs. Typically, fans in snow-heavy cities will pelt the opposing teams, or sometimes the refs, with snowballs. 

When was the last time you heard of fans targeting their own guys? 

All of this is doubly-bad news for Charlie Weis. First it looks like his stomach stapling surgery “didn’t take,” and now he’s about to get canned, just like Greg Robinson. 

However, something tells me ol’ Chuck won’t be saying, “It didn’t come as a surprise to me...”
