Charlie the Motivator

Charlie Weis is breaking out all the motivational ploys he can for Saturday's game against winless Stanford. No, he isn't biting the head off a frog or castrating a bull, as some coaches do, but he is offering just the most subtle of threats.

"The last thing I said to them," Weis said, "was, 'Just food for thought, if you lay an egg on Saturday, just imagine how the bye week's going to be around here.'"

For the record, the Irish have a bye week next week and won't play again until they host UCLA on Oct. 14.
