Alan Abrahamson of NBC Sports.com attended Saturday night's Notre Dame-USC game as a fan. Even from a corner seat 60 rows from the L.A. Coliseum field, this much was clear: Notre Dame is bad. Really bad.
And Abrahamson is "an expert on bad football." He attended Northwestern, and during his four years at Evanston, the Wildcats won three games.
He writes: "Thus my college years served me well in understanding, truly understanding, a lack of physical talent combined with bad schemes plus unimaginative coaching — all the ingredients on display when watching a bad football team.
"All of that was there to be seen Saturday night in the Coliseum. USC won, 38-3. Brutal."
Not that he's cheering for Charlie Weis to be dismissed.
"The Northwestern fan in me would love to see Charlie Weis stay on. The college football fan in me says Notre Dame must be better. Like, as soon as possible."
