I ♥ TY
Screw you, Kevin White. Way to give a brother a chance. What, three seasons and you're out? That's short-sighted and just plain stupid. The first couple of seasons Ty was working with Bob Davies' left-overs. His own recruits are just starting to come up, and they show promise. But no, you can't wait. You and those asshole alumi need somebody who can win RIGHT NOW. I'm disappointed too but you have to give the man a fair chance to build his team, you retards. God.
Mike Celizic of MSNBC says what I'm thinking:
This is not a good day for the University of Notre Dame.
It doesn't matter how happy Irish football fans were when the news spread like a prairie fire across the Internet that Ty Willingham had been fired. Their university, the one that held itself up as the place that did things the right way, has for the first time in its history failed to honor a contract.
The university that refused to fire the abomination that was Gerry Faust and that allowed the earnest and ineffective Bob Davie to plod through his contracted term, is now like everyone else. Its word to a coach once was as good as the gold on the administration building's dome. It's now as good as the coach's record.
Notre Dame once wanted not just to win, but to win in the right way. That philosophy ended Tuesday with the brief announcement on the school's Web site that Willingham's term as coach was ending one year before his contract expired.
From now on, winning is all that counts. The school's alumni and fans aren't likely to object to that. But that doesn't make it right.
Take me with you, Lou.
They have a point.
