Might as well do one thread for all the basking in the mewling of the Irish. This one from NDNation is well, something.
The highlights of the post:
-We lose because black people play football now (seriously)
-Catholics are too rich make good football players
-ACADEMIC STANDARDS (just ignore Stanford)
-Time to join the B1G
This is like the perfect storm of Notre Dame superiority, poorly disguised racism, and the standard academics excuse.
I wonder how that "Academics" excuse will play when a bunch of Northwestern MBAs and law students hang 70 on them.
Anything else pop up worthwhile today? I'm off to write my father and thank him for being the first person in his Irish Catholic family to go to Michigan instead of ND, thus setting the stage for me to avoid the fate of my cousins. Gonna be a great Thanksgiving this year!
The best paragraph IMHO:
...Shoveling against the Tide: In fact, Alabama is a convenient metaphor for the changes in the game. One of the changes relates to the fact that college football has become a game played by black men. The advantage accrues to the schools that can compete for young black men, often from disadvantaged backgrounds, representing a culture that elevates athletic achievement to the highest level. Success in sports brings cars, bling, and fame. How can they resist?...
