During the 4th quarter of the Notre Dame-USC game tonight Holly Rowe reported that she had a conversation with Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick and her report was anything but a ringing endorsement for Charlie Weis.
In a nutshell, Swarbrick said that the only thing that will be considered is what is best for the student athlete and based on what she said, it sounded as though Swarbrick was saying the buyout was not an issue and wouldn’t be a deciding factor on what Notre Dame will do with Charlie Weis.
Given the opportunity to defend Weis and give him a vote of confidence, he did not according to Rowe and that speaks volumes.
The only positive comment from Swarbrick was that we have had two great recruiting class in a row and are on the verge of another.
Also, since they did not show the interview with Swarbrick, take all of these comments with a grain of salt even though I’m sure a quality news service like ESPN wouldn’t only report what made the best story right?
