No problems with Evans

Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis has been asked why freshman receiver Shaquelle Evans hasn't been playing as much as he did at the start of the season.

Weis made it clear that Evans is not in the doghouse, despite hearing that the last few weeks.

"The last week and a half, he's actually practiced better and better to put himself in position to get significant time," Weis said. "The issue is, he's in position to go ahead and play in multiple wide receiver sets, and the guys playing ahead of him are playing too good to take out. When it came time for substituting (against Washington State), his group was in, and we were in more two wide receiver sets. Deion (Walker) and he share one position in two wide receiver sets. That time of game, in that situation, I wasn't calling very many three wide receiver sets. Because I was running the football. I promise you, may God strike me dead, there's no doghouse for No. 11."
