Sorry Charlie - Sports Gambling

Sports gambling expectations are sky high every season for Notre Dame football. Whether that is realistic or not is irrelevant as that’s reality in South Bend.

Sports gambling fans were therefore disappointed in another lackluster online sports gambling season by the Irish in which they finished 6-6 straight up. The poor sports gambling results of the past three seasons finally cost head coach Charlie Weiss his job as he was fired immediately after the Fighting Irish concluded the online sports gambling season with a 38-45 sports betting loss at Stanford.

The Irish have had three consecutive non-winning sports gambling regular seasons under Weiss as they finished 6-6 last year and 3-9 in 2007.  It was evident that Weiss was not able to combine effective recruiting and player development.

It was also a sports gambling irony that Weiss never produced his famous “schematic advantage” that he boasted about in his first ever press conference when accepting the job.  Under Weiss watch the Irish suffered sports gambling humiliations previously unknown in their storied history including home losses to Navy in 2007 and 2009.

Weiss never produced a sports gambling win over USC in his 5 attempts and also had embarrassing losses to Syracuse last year and Connecticut this year.  Those are teams that Irish Nation expects to dominate, especially at home.  Weiss entered Notre Dame with considerable hype, bluster, and arrogance.

He left humbled with a lesser sports gambling win percentage than his two predecessors, Tyrone Willingham and Bob Davie.  Weiss got off to a great start by going 9-2 straight up in his first sports gambling season and was rewarded with a huge multi-million dollar 10-year contract.

At the end Notre Dame had to cough up the cash and pay him to leave and start over.  The Irish could have gone to a minor bowl this year but the administration decided to forego that opportunity in order to completely focus on the search for a new coach.

It has been argued that Notre Dame may not have realistic expectations anymore and that college football has changed.  But to the fans of this program nothing less than perfection will do.  The Irish are always a popular bet with the general public and a consistent overlay as a result.  In 2009 they were 4-8 against the spread.
