Weis: The day after Purdue

For the first time in school history, Notre Dame is 0-5.

The Irish lost 33-19 to Purdue on Saturday.

Trailing 23-0 at the half, the Irish offense woke up in the 2nd half and led ND on a major comeback. But it wasn't enough in the end as Notre Dame lost its 7th straight game dating back to last season.

In his day after the game press conference, Notre Dame head coach Charlie Weis said his team must play a full 60 minutes to win.

He also wouldn't speculate on who the quarterback will be next Saturday. Jimmy Clausen started and played well but left the game with a bruised hip. Evan Sharpley replaced him and also played well, throwing two touchdown passes.

Clausen's injury is not considered serious according to Weis, but is still in the evaluation process.

Weis said it would be unfair to name a quarterback at 1pm on Sunday when a number of factors (especially Clausen's health) were still up in the air.

Weis also said the team will see the 1st team offense face team defense on Tuesday.

When the Irish offense is running its plays, the defense will simulate UCLA. The two sides will then switch.
