ND is not the draw to today's kids it was when he was a kid. Does he think he needs to build a reputation in College first before NFL? What is your take on this curious move?

A: Steven, I think you hit it: he didn't want to take the chance again. He even said it this week. Right now there are two jobs open, right? Cleveland is open and it looks like Baltimore pro personnel director Phil Savage is taking the job. He's going to pick the coach. Any guarantees he would have chosen Charlie when his experience is with the Ravens who have a strong candidate in Mike Nolan? I don't know. Maybe if Charlie were available, he'd be a top candidate though you also have Brad Childress in Philly making a strong bid. San Francisco is available. They'd be dopes if they didn't put out feelers for Pete Carroll, who would have to be their top choice. The other reason is it's Notre Dame. He loves Notre Dame. That's his school. That's his dream job. They gave him $2 million a year which is probably what he would make as a first-time NFL head coach, if that.
