Man, am I in the wrong here hoping that this rumor is true. If UW fired Ty after three years this would provide further validation of ND's move to fire Ty. ie dude just cannot coach. I know among media and fans it probably wouldn't mean squat. Many I'm sure would still harbor negative feelings towards ND. But for some Irish fans it might be "Ha, told ya so".

hahaha... C'mon John, we don't need another Mark May on TV. I watched a team called Skyview win the 3A football title over the weekend. The team is really good BTW. It was just funny during the game when I heard the announcer say "Nathaniel Willingham on the tackle." Made my night, it was his son who stood 5'9 weighing 220 pounds.

In all honesty, race has nothig to do with it with me and 100% ofthe Irish fans that I know.

 

We all truly like the person and character of Willingham and if he would have done the job Charlie had his first two years and faced the same problems as CW with the recruiting success we are having now. I would love for him to be our head coach!

 

That's the honest to God truth! I not only resent as a Notre Dame fan the implication of racism but I find it appalling that in this day and age and with the open out support and LOVE we show our black athletes and black coaches here now, that racism is even mentioned when it has to do with Notre Dame.

 

If Willingham would have won a NC at ND, he would have become a cherished legend as will CW if he wins one (or more hopefully). And make no doubt about it, ONE more year like this one and I wil be the first in line to sign the "Fire CW" petition!

 

That's just the BLACK AND WHITE truth!!!!! (No pun intended)!

Well it'll save Washington a few bucks to wait til January 3. Although, were I a judge, being a terrible coach would be proper cause.

 

And in response to Speedster's post above, I cannot stand Ty Willingham the person. He never stands up and takes blame, he throws hisplayers under the bus. I think his refusal to change or evaluate his own performance lets down his players. He works half-assed (at best) at the part of his job that is the LIFEBLOOD of the team (recruiting). And I could go on.

 

I'm not saying I would hire Carl Spackler to cut the hamstring on the back of his leg right at the bottom, because his weight displacement goes back, all his weight is on his right foot, so he'll push everything off to the right. He'll never come through on anything. He'll quit the game.

 

But I'm not not saying it.

So the little guy has his pops by about 60 pounds I'd say. :D
