Is Notre Dame a prestigious program and/or head coaching job anymore?

November 29th, 2009 by Gallagher John 1 Comment

Another disappointing loss for ND tonight. The tough part is listening to some of the prognosticators say that ND is not prestigious anymore…Does any other TEAM basically have their own national television contract? Can any other TEAM say that every one of their games is televised…every year? Can any other TEAM say that the biggest game their opponent plays EVERY year is the Notre Dame game? Notre Dame IS prestigious and Robert Smith (ESPN studio analyst) doesn’t understand what he is saying when he says that Notre Dame can’t afford a prestigious coach since Weis’ buyout is so large.

Now, I do believe that Weis should forego a majority of the buyout since I believe he should be fired for ’cause’. Even HE said when he was hired that 6-5 just wasn’t good enough! He’s right. 6-6 isn’t good enough, either.
Notre Dame IS a prestigious program. Notre Dame IS a prestigious coaching opportunity. Notre Dame WILL return to prestige in terms of the elite winning programs. 11 National Championships, 7 Heisman trophy winners. It’s not just football…It’s Notre Dame football!!!

    I agree that this job is an upper tier job. I also beleive that if the right man takes the position that Notre dame will return to being a top tier team.

    I beleive the athletes are their. We are missing one thing.
