Crewcut's Curious, Unexplained Calls
Perhaps you were as dumbfounded as, well, everybody else, but days after the fact, Crewcut Charlie Weis' bizarro decisions in Notre Dame's 46-44 triple overtime loss to Navy remain largely unexplained.
In particular was the big guy's call to go for it on fourth and eight with 45 seconds remaining in regulation instead of attempting a 41-yard field goal that could have won the game. The top video shows the fourth-and-eight play and questioning of Crewcut's call by NBC's Pat Haden. (You can advance it to the -2:12 mark if you don't want to listen to "Anchors Aweigh.")
The bottom video shows the winning play from the stands and the Midshipmen rushing onto the field. Pitch Right, the fine Navy blog, has been busy posting several other videos that have trickled onto the Internet.
