What's the Difference Between Jersey Girls and Trash?

Charlie Weis continued his sacking and plundering of the Garden State this weekend by nabbing another uber-recruit and neckless wonder Justin Trattou (whose name from this day forth will be changed to "Tratteaux" in order to satisfy Weis' intimidating-ethnic-last-name quota).

As you can see, this was another recruiting coup over big-time regional suitors such as Ohio State, Penn State, and more or less the entire ACC. More importantly, a statement has been made in New Jersey, where Notre Dame has locked down the three best prospects in the state (Mike Ragone and Duval Kamara being the other two) in a matter of weeks. While Jersey has traditionally been a pipeline for talent to ND due to its Catholic population and lack of a major in-state school (sorry, Greg Schiano), Weis' own Jersey ties have turned the Irish into an imdomitable force in the state.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Weis was back out on the road this weekend, locking up verbal commitments from Tony Soprano, Bruce Springsteen, the Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and the Jersey Devil.

Size? Check. Speed? Check. Wingspan? Check. Eats livestock and babies? Double check. The prototypical Notre Dame player.

At the NJ Sportswriters Banquet back in the winter, Charlie Weis was honored as its Man of the Year, along with Greg Schiano, Scott Stevens, Chuck "The Bayonne Bleeder" Wepner and a whole slew of NJ sports figures.

Schiano complimented Weis for being the first person to call him when Rutgers qualified for its bowl game in a gazillion years.

Weis told the crowd that when the ND plane landed in Phoenix last December for the Fiesta Bowl, he forced the team to attend the Insight Bowl between Rutgers and Arizona State and told his players "you better root for Rutgers."

Was that a verbal commit from young Tony (AJ) Soprano or Big Tony. AJ is going back to college next year, there is no mention of where...

Almost without exception I enjoy your site, including the cutting commentary. I don't think the title "What's the Difference Between Jersey Girls and Trash?" is particularly humorous, and it has absolutely no bearing on the post on Trattou. I think it's just insulting for the sake of being unkind. Take it for what it's worth, just one man's opinion.
