Reading With Care

Charlie Weis is not a Web surfer by preference. And with the Michigan debacle still fresh in the Irish memory (despite attempts to move on) he’s not about to tempt his fate. So he will avoid newspapers and Internet fan chat sites and anything that won’t help the cause -- which is beat Michigan State on Saturday.

“If things go well, I don’t ready the newspapers and have people say you’re the best thing since sliced bread,” he says. “And I don’t read them if things go poorly and people tell you you’re a dummy. I’ve gone two weeks in a row where newspapers and I have not gotten along.”

So what does the Notre Dame coach read? Mostly stuff about the weather and his daughter, Hannah, and their non-profit organization for special needs children and adults.

“Other than that,” he says, “it’s been a very poor week for me on the Web.”
