TY GOES FOR TWO

We're heading into the official nadir of collegefootballdom, Memorial Day. But there's good news, like the fact that you're past halfway to the season, and that Phil Steele's fan polls are getting rigged by Mormons, and that long after his departure from Notre Dame Ty Willingham is living your dream: pulling down two paychecks while only working one job.

Weis, who will enter his fourth season at Notre Dame in 2008, did receive a bump from his salary reported by the school from July 1, 2005, to June 30, 2006. In that time frame, Weis made $565,566 in salary, $53,115 in deferred compensation and benefits and had an expense account of $55,100.

His compensation was behind former coach L. Tyrone Willingham then, and for the second straight year, Notre Dame paid Willingham more than its current coach.

The school paid Willingham $650,000 from July 1, 2006, to June 30, 2007, as part of its settlement with the current University of Washington coach after Notre Dame fired him on Nov. 30, 2004.

We have this fiscal armageddon in our heads in two years if Weis doesn't make it, and ND's still writing checks to Ty, and to Charlie Weis for his three thousand year contract, and to the interim coach they fired in the meantime, and to me, because someone should write us two paychecks at once, too, and why not you, Notre Dame? We, too can coach a team to 3-9 and figure out that hiring Jon Tenuta is a good thing.

In the meantime, drinks are on Ty. Nice work, sir.
