With each Notre Dame loss, the firing of coach Charlie Weis travels further down the road of if toward the intersection of when, picking up speed and barreling toward the inevitable.
And when might that when be?
Likely, after this season.
Spell out the facts, and it reads like an obituary.
Saturday’s loss to Pittsburgh, following an embarrassing home defeat against Navy, dropped Weis’ record to 35-25. That’s a .583 winning percentage, the same percentage predecessors Bob Davie and Tyrone Willingham had when they were fired.
