Weis focuses on diving into new season

Posted by Mike Mardis

Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis doesn't want to talk about last season.

The Irish lost a school-record nine games last year. They also gave up a record 58 sacks and were last in the NCAA in total offense at just 242 yards a game.

So at Friday's football media day, Weis refused to answer questions about last year and said the Irish are focused on moving forward.

Notre Dame players say they're eager to get the season started. Quarterback Jimmy Clauson says he's going to do everything he can to make sure last season doesn't happen again. And safety David Bruton says the Irish are using last year's disappointment as an incentive to better this year.

Weis stressed the need to get off to a fast start this season. He said the team "is hungry" to start winning football games.

Notre Dame opens the season at home on September 6th against San Diego State.
