I was just thinking. Maybe the ND administration knew what it was doing extending Weis's contract.
I mean think about it ... who would care about a ND team that is 6-6 or 4-8 every year? Everyone will talk about them going 0-12, right? Wouldn't you want to see them set records for ineptitude?
A bunch of bad, but not terrible seasons & they fade to obscurity. Maybe they figured the only way anyone would care about ND long term is if they are one of the worst teams ever.
Just a theory ... a little tongue in cheek, maybe, but who knows. :)
Anyone who picks number three in the poll below needs serious help.
