Crewcut Charlie: Big Man on Campus

CBS' "60 Minutes" aired a segment Sunday night on Notre Dame coach Crewcut Charlie Weis. If you missed it, you can check out part of the video and a transcript by clicking here. Correspondent Steve Kroft asked Crewcut: "One of the things that people have told me is that you have a pretty high opinion of yourself." Crewcut: "Who told you that?" Kroft: "You're not denying it." Crewcut: "In coaching, if you don't think you are good then you have no chance." Kroft: "Is there anyone in college football you think that can out-coach you?" Crewcut: "I would not give that up. I would not want to think that somebody's gonna out-coach me."

I think you miss the point. If you think someone can out-coach you, you need to hang it up. Further, even if you did think someone could out-coach you, you wouldn't say it on national television.

Nice all-caps and exclamation points, by the way.

THANKS!!! I didn't miss the point. It was a stupid question to have been asked. Of course there is not a single coach out there who would answer that question honestly, even if he did think there was a smarter, more talented coach. Perhaps Steve Kroft should have asked why after the unsuccessful gastro-intestinal surgery crewcut has done nothing to lose any weight?
