... and some of its own players.
It doesn't get any worse than this for Notre Dame. You blow a 13-point lead at home to Syracuse which has just fired its coach and just happens to be quarterbacked by Adrian Dantley's son.
The student section pelted the Irish to the point that defensive lineman Pat Kuntz turned around and challenged the crowd after getting hit.
This is rock bottom for the Charlie Weis era. When the students are turning on you at home there is something fundamentally wrong. Even though Weis has seven years to run on his contract, money would not be an issue to buy him out (even though the buyout is reportedly $20 million).
Notre Dame is going to lose USC next week and go to the Sun Bowl (against Nebraska, most likely). The Sun people are ecstatic to get Notre Dame for the obvious reason that it would fill seats -- but would it?
Don't listen to me, read the first three reactions from our Talk Back section:
Weis proving He's not fit......in more ways than one. This was a disastrous loss, and Weis' snow job is coming to an end. After they get pummelled by USC next week, and most likely lose a bowl game in late December, Weis should be fired pronto.
How the hell does ND lose to Syracuse at home (coming from a Cuse fan)?.
Not Up To Irish StandardsAt 6-4 and a game left with USC, Norte Dame gets a Bowl Bid just on their Name, Weis should decline any Bowl Game and save himself any further humiliation and enbarrassment. Although I don't think it will cost him his job this year, Irish learned their lesson with Willingham, would'nt it be ironic if Notre Dame hired Willingham back?
