Ty Willingham is out in South Bend. I'm kind of surprised by this one. Notre Dame hasn't been that good the past two years, but I thought they'd at least let Ty finish out his contract. AFAIK, Notre Dame has a history of not firing coaches during their initial coaching contracts.
Peter King thinks we were all too quick to write off the Indianapolis defense (and, to a lesser extent, the Minnesota defense). Yes, they have looked better over the last two weeks -- against Craig Krenzel, Joey Harrington, and Mike McMahon.

The latest strategic analysis from our friend William Krasker looks at Mike Tice's decision to go for two with the score 19-13 and further discusses his theory on intentionally committing a penalty in the final two minutes.
