Despite a .500 season, Charlie Weis will return next year.

Notre Dame finally ended the suspense Tuesday evening, announcing embattled coach Charlie Weis will return for the 2009 season. The national media outlets (our site included) and the blogosphere reacted quickly, and amid the slew of pontificating, we discerned the three most commonly offered explanations.

They are:

1. The Notre Dame brass really do have faith in Weis' ability to recruit and lead effectively, consistently put together double-digit win totals and beat Michigan and USC in the same season.

2. The school wants to send Weis packing, but it wants one thing even more, and that's to avoid giving the "trigger happy" critics more fodder.

3. Urban Meyer and Brain Kelly both said "thanks, but no thanks," and so the situation resolved itself.

We're casting out unofficial vote for No. 3 (though No. 2 is admittedly compelling). What do you think?

Seriously, someone THAT FAT should not be involved in pro sports, I'm so glad that the Detroit Lions were not truly interested in bringing this GLOB in for a job.
