Um, is Charlie Weis Doing Product Placement?

So every Notre Dame fan is eating up these daily press conferences on UND.com, and I can only imagine what kind of bandwidth and traffic they're getting. Which makes me a little bit suspiciuos of this latest video, where Weis gingerly sips a Diet Coke with the label facing the camera the whole time. Coach is making a pretty solid paycheck from the University, I'm hoping he doesn't need to resort to plugging products to get by. If he comes out tomorrow with a bucket of Popeye's chicken and an ESPN Mobile phone, we're all in trouble.


Who wouldn't buy fried chicken from this man?

If the opening for the can is opposite the label then he really doesn't have a choice but to drink it "trademark out" does he? Line a 12 pack up and maybe 6 of them will be this way. It is all about how they roll through the printing line.

I was thinking the same thing, though not in the conspiratorial way that you imply. If you noticed earlier in the week Minter and another coach were eating water ice that was made by Minute Maid. Minute Maid's owner?, it is Coca Cola. Whether it is a plug for $$ (coaches or school) or just the product of a company they get a good deal on is anyone's guess.

One of the trustees for the University is a big wig for Coca-Cola, and the school has a contract with them (ever notice how all the dining halls have Mello-Yello instead of Mountain Dew? That is because MD is Pepsi, bitches.)

BTW, the code word for me to make this post was perps. How odd.

Coca Cola is a 'big 6' advertiser with Irish Athletics. Trust me, they get some perks...
