Weis Mum on Navy Streak

If you think Charlie Weis is going to emphasize Notre Dame's 42-game winning streak against Navy, you must be confused. He says he's not even going to mention it as the Irish prepare to play Navy on Saturday in Baltimore.

He's more interested in getting his team to play to its potential. He wants the offense to dominate, and not just because he's the play caller. The Irish have talent, such as quarterback Brady Quinn (pictured) and have yet to maximize it. That's especially true of the running attack, which has been far too inconsistent for Weis' liking. That will have to change. In fact, it's being changed as we speak.

Beyond that, Weis is concerned that Navy has had two weeks to prepare for the Irish because of a bye week. Of course, the fact Navy lost its starting quarterback negates some of that preparation time. Still, Notre Dame needs a decisive win in the worst way. On Saturday we'll know if it got it.
