Duke coach Ted Roof talked during a conference call how this season has been fun even though the Blue Devils are 1-9. Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis laughed when asked if he's had a similar experience.
Weis says he would not make the same statement.
Nobody has been having much fun around Notre Dame these days. The Irish (1-9) have their worst record ever and their longest home losing streak ever at six straight losses. The last time they won at home was a 41-9 victory over Army in the final home game for last year's seniors.
A loss Saturday to Duke would give them another five straight losses, which would tie for the third worst losing streak in school history.
In short, this could well be end up being the worst team in 119 seasons of Notre Dame football.
