He won’t come out and say it himself, but Rick Minter is out for revenge this weekend when his defense goes up against Charlie Weis’ offense at Florida. Minter wouldn’t comment after practice today but starting linebacker Ronnie Sneed said his defensive coordinator “wants it bad” against the man who fired him at Notre Dame.
Minter had this to say after Charlie let him go in 2007:
“Would I have let me go if I were in his shoes? No. But I think Charlie will be more comfortable with somebody from the Belichick-Parcells family. Charlie has brought in a young guy who doesnâ€™t have my experience. But heâ€™ll be more comfortable with him.â€
Is there still bad blood there? Eh, maybe. Maybe not. But I can guarantee you he wants revenge.
It won’t come easy.
