Cool Charlie Weis story

I believe this is from a Cleveland newspaper.

 

Folks are still buzzing over a recruiting visit new Notre Dame football head coach Charlie Weis made recently with a top area high-school lineman, who clearly expected to be wooed, flattered and praised by Weis. Instead, Weis slapped a copy of the recruit's grade transcripts down on the table, chastised him for being an obviously lazy student and told him that unless things changed, Notre Dame wouldn't waste another minute recruiting him. Word is the shocked lineman is now vowing to take his classes much more seriously this school year. Weis has already received commitments from two St. Ignatius High standouts, receiver Robby Parris and defensive end John Ryan, for 2006.

Amen to that guys..looks good in my eyes..to know we have that kind of coach..you not only have to be a bad A%# on the football field..but in the classroom also.

Man that's awesome. To have him lecture the recruit instead of persuade him makes me think a lot higher of Weis (well more than I already did).

I'm not sure what's more refreshing, Charlie going in and busting the kid's chops or the kid actually responding and showing the desire to be at ND. The will to do the work to EARN a spot on the Notre Dame football roster. The desire to play for Charlie Weis. Good Stuff!
