There’s not going to be much to this post. A little commentary, and a quote from Rocket. All I’m going to say here is: he’s right.
Now, you hear a lot of things people say about [Weis] that aren’t always so good. And what I have to say about that is this: If you met the guy and interacted with him and come away with that impression, then that’s that.
But if you are 7,000 miles away and you spout all this stuff and feed the brush fire of murmuring and complaining and you haven’t even picked up the phone and you haven’t asked what you can do to help the man, that just adds to that system of unbelief.
If you say you love the university, don’t be the complainer. Come in and say, â€œWhat do you need? What can I do for you?â€
People forget about the spirit of Notre Dame. We’re supposed to handle these issues differently. Pray for that man. Light a candle at the Grotto. That what makes us special. Then let God do the work. How about that?
Doesn’t mean you have to love everything Weis does. Doesn’t mean you have to think he’s God’s gift to coaching, or that you even have to like him. But if you call yourself a Notre Dame fan, well then you Best Damn Well be Supporting him and his Team.. Either for the next 10 years, or until it’s another guy in the job that you need to support.
Just listen to the Rocket. Too many of us have forgotten that Notre Dame spirit he refers to, and that’s a shame.
