The With Leather weekend shift gets to handle most of the college football news around these parts, but I couldn't help but notice that Notre Dame got its ass handed to it by Air Force on Saturday, right on the heels of its loss to Navy. FanHaus pointed out some of the (please note sarcasti-quotes) "Fighting" Irish's dubious achievements this year:
• Notre Dame's first 9 loss season in the Irish history.
• The sixth straight home loss is a first for Notre Dame.
• The most lopsided loss by ND to a service academy in 44 years (Navy winning 35-14 in 1963).
• The first time ND has lost to two service academies in the same year since 1944.
A lot of people are probably blaming Charlie Weis for being the most disappointing, overrated coach in history. They're also blaming him for the missing pie that was cooling on the window sill. But I blame the pope. For Notre Dame, I mean — not for the pie. The pie was all Weis.
