Charlie Weis has some strange obsessions

Charlie WeisAround here, we despise everything Notre Dame.

It’s probably from growing up in Indiana, but it could be from our brother stealing all our Lucky Charms when we were small.

Granted, there about 10,000 easy reasons to hate the Fighting Irish (#45 — consistently overrated, #3,403 — a national (unbiased) network assigned to their games, #90 — Jimmy Clausen, #7,498 — leprechauns).

But easily at the top of the list is the “culture” the school pretends to have.

Notre Dame: You’re a college. You have dumb athletes on your team. They drink and try to find the hottest girls on campus, just like anywhere else.

Head coach Charlie Weis (he really owns that outfit doesn’t he?) seems to be especially deluded when it comes to Notre Dame’s awesomeness.

Which is why this nugget dug up by the South Bend Tribune didn’t surprise us in the least:

At the conclusion of the 2 1/2-hour session in full pads at Notre Dame Stadium, Weis commanded his 18 frosh to serenade the 2,000 or so curiosity-seekers with the school alma mater. . . “It was marginal,” Weis deadpanned of the vocal performance. “It was terrible yesterday.” Maybe that had something to do with the fact that the mandatory singing practice was held at 7:30 a.m., Friday.

Yes, I know about team-building and school spirit and all that crap, but this reeks of Weis actually being so douchey, he cares about how they sing the song. Plus, Weis sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at Wrigley Field earlier this summer. What’s this obsession with the tunes?

One game last year, some of the guys weren’t singing or weren’t paying attention,” Weis said of the postgame tradition of singing the alma mater to the student section. “That’s not what Notre Dame is all about. It may not seem like something big to a lot of you guys, but it’s important to me.

Well, there it is. I knew this had a smell to it.

Charlie, I know you think Notre Dame is different than every other institution in the country, but it’s not. The football program and its perennially unreal expectations are the only reason it stands out.

The only thing you’re going to hear this year, Charlie, are chants of “Over – Rated” from student sections.

    I think that obese slob should worry less about singing and more about learning to say, “I’m full.”

    What an f’ing disgrace. Fat pig.

    While I’m no fan of Notre Dame, I was wondering two things: 1) How do you know with such certainty that Notre Dame is no different than any other school in the country–seems odd given their academic reputation 2) Where did you go to school? I’m guessing you couldn’t get into Notre Dame and didn’t bother applying or were outright rejected. Perhaps, the admissions office even stamped LOL on your application. Wherever it was, ask for your money back–diluded isn’t a word in the grown-up world.

    Hey Mikey,

    I attended Yale and have no problem laughing at good ol’ Notre Dame. Nothing but a decent school that loves to pretend it’s on a par with the Ivy League, Stanford, Northwestern, Duke and several others. Not even close.

    ND wasn’t even my backup school.

    Keep telling yourself that ND is special…if that helps you sleep at night. Moron.

    Yale. Sure you did You can neither spell nor read. I told you–I have no affinity for the place. It’s also clear that you have no problem laughing at Notre Dame. Why do you feel the need to state that? Are you retarded or just an angry little man? I can’t tell. Either way, you do seem like an All-American douche. It’s sad that you spend your day “blogging” on a “blog” that no one is interested in. You should go off as a No. 1 seed for the SHOTY.

    Mikey, it’s time to get off the computer, your mommy needs to use it now.

    Keep taking those local community college courses…our firm could use someone to scrub the urinals. You sound like just the “man” for the job.

    I tend to doubt Charlie Weis was “diluted.” He may, however, have been “deluded.” Casts a little more doubt on the whole Yale thing, I’d say.

    Truth…I just checked U.S. News and World Reports ranking of Top Universities. Seems I played football and earned an economics degree from a school ranked two spots above your “alleged” alma mater–I can’t give you the benefit of the doubt because you can’t spell ‘deluded’…sorry. Aren’t pseudo-journalists supposed to have mastered spelling…not to mention Yale grads. Was your admission granted strictly on merit like your hero W? Just wondering little guy!

    Sorry for the spell-check problems people. However, I should clear up that “the Truth” is not the publisher of this blog. And I did not attend Yale. Geez, I leave for 5 minutes and I’m nominated for a SHOTY. What up with that? (That’s how we learned to talk where I was schooled)

    Man law: anyone who brags about going to Yale deserves to be placed on a rape stand.

    Attacking Weis’ weight instead of his actions, nice.

    Anyway, alma maters are important songs pertaining to each college. There is no reason the football players should not know the words to the song of the school which they represent. This IS yet another reason Notre Dame is different than the rest of the NCAA,

    Also, there is nothing wrong with expecting to win every year. That’s what America’s team is supposed to do.

    p.s., Truth, you just got owned.
