That’s not too surprising, really. I mean, Karl Dorrell basically gift-wrapped a victory for the Irish this past weekend that would leave any opposing coach wondering why the man did what he did. Being baffled and asking yourself questions like “did that man seriously tell his defenders to just, uh, not go anywhere near that dude on our team with the crazy last name” is wildly different, however, than what Weis is actually baffled by.
“One of the teams [Tennessee] that jumped us had the same game that we had. They’re down, they’re playing at home and they win by a field goal,” Weis said Tuesday. “Another team [Florida] that jumped us wasn’t even playing. They were home, eating cheeseburgers, and they end up jumping us. That befuddles me.”
A lot of coaches usually say how the polls don’t matter to them, because, uh, the polls normally do not matter in October. Usually winning the games and letting things sort themselves out is what coaches seem to worry about.
“Tell me how that works?” Weis said. “Maybe I’m just stupid. Tell me how that works?”
Well, since you asked, I’ll explain to you how that works.
