[Bumped for truly awe-inspiring public relations out of South Bend. Looks like Baghdad Bob found a career after Saddam was overthrown. "South Bend Sammy", maybe? -- RUTS]
According to the 2009 Notre Dame "Spring Prospectus", Weis never took part in a losing season:
"Notre Dame omitted the losing seasons from Weis’ year-by-year biography on page 15 of the 2009 Spring Prospectus and page 90 of the 2008 football media guide. Among the omissions is the Irish’s 3-9 2007 season."
This includes records in the NFL:
"Other records that are missing include the New England Patriots’ 5-11 season in 2000, the 6-10 year the Patriots had in 1995, the 5-11 year in 1993, a 6-10 campaign with the New York Giants in 1992 and two losing seasons at South Carolina: 5-6 in 1985 and 3-6-2 in 1986."
But they gladly give credit for any winning season:
"However, any .500 or better season Weis helped out in, from the 8-4 Gator Bowl season at South Carolina in 1987 to the 10-2 Sugar Bowl year at Notre Dame in 2006, was included."
So more or less, he's never had a losing season, he only takes guys with character, and he's still the best coach in both college and professional football.
[Well, yeah. Obviously. Just ask him. - RUTS]
