Vote: Willingham Out
Tyrone Willingham couldn't wake up the echoes. But can anyone disturb them from their slumber in South Bend?
Notre Dame announced on Monday that Willingham would not return as head coach for the 2005 season. But is Willingham to blame? Vote now!
Thank you for voting. See below for the results from across SportsNation.
Your responses in bold text.
1) Do you agree with Notre Dame that Tyrone Willingham was not the right coach to lead the Irish back to national prominence?
2) Did Tyrone Willingham get a fair chance to build a winner at Notre Dame?
3) Is Notre Dame still an elite program in college football?
4) What is most to blame for Notre Dame's recent lack of BCS success?
5) Would joining a conference for football help Notre Dame?
Yes, they need the stability and schedule help.
No, they would become just another school.
6) With Willingham out at Notre Dame and Tony Samuel out at New Mexico State, there are currently two African-American head coaches in Division I. How would you rate the state of diversity in college programs?
Deplorable -- Schools aren't giving qualified African-American candidates fair opportunities.
Mediocre -- It's bad right now, but the doors are open for a new generation of candidates to emerge.
Fine -- The numbers aren't there, but schools are doing everything right in looking at qualified candidates.
7) Will Tyrone Willingham's inability to lead Notre Dame to prominence hurt the future chances for African American coaches in the college ranks?
8) Who is the best candidate to be the next head coach at Notre Dame?
9) If you were Urban Meyer, which job would be most enticing?
10) Which down-and-out program will most quickly turn things around and regain BCS stature?
