    Bad call on Charlie Weis' part. I'm going to laugh when he sucks it up over the next 3 games and all the Notre Dame fans start to turn on him begging Weis to recruit another QB

        Wow. This surprises me. Seems pretty premature.

          He was clearly the best QB on the field last Saturday. Whether they win or lose on Saturday he still gives them the best chance. Also Charlie already has another big QB recruit coming in next year. I don't see how this is a bad move. Jimmy is probably only staying for three years anyway, time to get his work in for next year.

            Can someone explain to me why Weis would recruit a 5-star QB two years in a row? Does he plan on red-shirting Crist next year?

              Why does USC bring in a 5 star RB every year? Its a good problem to have. Crist will probably sit for two years (one being a redshirt), then play if he progresses like Weis would like. He'd then have three year to be eligible if he'd like.

                are you actually questioning Weis for getting 2 great QB's? haha...anyways....Clausen gives ND the best chance to win....He may struggle some, but that will only make him better...... In the long run it's the best chance....I couldn't see Demtruis Jones or Evan Sharpley leading us to a win against Penn State.

                  Weis said in his press conference that Clausen was the leader in the QB race coming out of spring practice, but it was the elbow surgery that set him back in the competition in the fall. And he apparently only became fully cleared late last week. From his comments, I assume that if not for the surgery, Clausen would have probably been the opening day starter.

                    So I guess clausen can throw more then 15 yards now...well I like the decision, if your going to suck, why not suck with the future, if clausen really is the future and that great, all this experience will help him next yr and the yr after, i mean if your going to get beat down why not?

                    yes penn st will thrash them, and it would happen regardless of who they played, they need a spark, so maybe they get it with clausen

                      That's the plan for sure. Start him when he has a chance at victory to build up his confidence.
                      And proud of it!!!

                        I don't see how anyone can argue against it, he's clearly the future of the program, and since the team isn't going anywhere this season its better to get him in as soon as possible. When you combine that with the fact that he's already the best QB on the roster, it seems like a no brainer to me.

                          As a Notre Dame fan I couldnt agree with you more.

                            If they thought that whacking at GTech was bad, they are in for a huge surprise. Penn State will manhandle them. Even a more hostile environment, a better, faster and more disciplined defense and the offense is better and has more talent at the skill positions.

                            If ND can score a field goal this game, that would be a victory for Weis and Co.

                            In my call, a very bad week to start Clausen... but he does give them teh best chance...

                              The game was played in South Bend on Saturday vs G Tech. Penn State is a hostile environment, but if Notre Dame can come out and score early against them it will shut up the crowd. I personally dont think Notre Dame has a shot, and either does Vegas tagging them as a 16 point dog. But there would be nothing else I would like to see more then Notre Dame beating Penn State. I hate Penn State with a passion. Oh well atleast we are 0-1 and have no expectations for a big time bowl. Last year Penn State went into Notre Dame ranked, and got their A$$ handed to them. We have nothing to lose this week. Nothing.
