Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
Some Notes about Notre Dame
poor thrower indeed! I don't remember hearing that part before. Thanks a bunch, this is always a treat to watch and is now bookmarked.
Each update you give there should be a 'C'Mon Man!' section where you post the most ridiculous things said by Notre Dame fans.
....that you will never see unbridled homerism on this board.
am looking forward to similar threads on MSU and Ohio. Just curious to see the discussion on them and whatever response their fans might have in that thread.
Word with reputable sources are calling Hendrix as the leader with Golson second. Rees will be with the Red Hat brigade before long.
As for Lynch, he really misses his fiance, who is back in FLA. I suspect that the next time something like this happens, he gone.
Not quite sure whos got what on field turf, there is construction at the stadium but no one was able to confirm field turf. The Old Milkshakes are steadfastly refusing to put up with turf and jumbotron talk.
If you are speaking about NDNation or the like, then yes that play is as delusional as most delusional UM boards. irishenvy.com is where to cool people hang out. We had a facebook group started by Tee Sheppard that has de-evolved into a cess pool of idiots who think that tweeting recruits will help them get the recruits to sign with ND and get themselves a job with rivals.
Your beacon of sanity is called irishenvy.com?
Notre Dame has been the biggest mystery this past decade. Even with some of the the top talent and far easier schedules they were mediocare at best. gone through 4 coaches and really all i keep seeing is the same team.Think bout all the top QBs theyv commited only to transfer. Sharpley, Frazer, Jones, Crist all transfered in the past 5 years. Great campus and top notch academics but average football at best. Hard to belive but ever since Holtzsss retired program just hasnt been the same
Played golf with my good friend from ND and I think he's finally seen the light. He hates every QB on the roster, thinks they will get smoked by Michigan and end up going 7-5. I could not believe the words coming out of his mouth but I think the past 15 years are finally starting to take their toll. He even declared ND a basketball school now which is sad but true.
Please keep them coming. Thanks.
Just to follow up on the original post: I've heard some differen things in terms of how things will pan out. First, in speaking with a football player, according to him, it's Golson's job to lose at this point. The only concern with Golson is that he is not grasping the offense like Kelly wants him to. However, his immense talent makes up for that. Either way, not only do fans want Rees not to start, but the players don't as well. People love him as a person, but he's just not the right fit at QB.
The field turf thing I haven't heard at all, and I just refuse to believe that. ND's field is by far one of the worst in the nation. It's not kept up very well, uneven at points, etc. But ND fans and the administration view it like Lambeau... regardless of quality, it's hallowed ground. I think Kelly has stepped on enough toes already and that one is going too far. The administration isn't going to undertake immense construction and millions of dollars to please an 8-5 coach.
Finally, ND fans are more than delusional, they're insecure. It's as though you cannot speak of another school because merely stating that another school is good, to them, is saying that ND is bad. What's worse is that the majority are exteremely uninformed (i.e. believing their business school is #1 in the nation because BusinessWeek not USNWR, said so, or that the reason they aren't good in football is because of their high academic standards for incoming athletes). The extereme misinformation, mixed with their immense passion, equals for the delusion which you are talking about.
OP, I'd love to know what forums you're scouting out. I can't seem to find any decent ones no matter how much I look. Please post where you read, I'd appreciate it.
You're saying that Business Week, who uses clear metrics that make perfect sense and look strongly at things like job placement, is not valid because......?
You say "insecure," I'd say they're only rational defending the academics. ND's degree has an ROI second to only Stanford in schools that play FBS football and is equivlent with Yale. Maybe you're the one who is uninformed.
Also, why on earth would you go to ND for grad school? The grad schools at ND suck.
As for the academic standards excuse.... you couldn't be more correct. It's a ridiculous cop out with no basis in fact. The foreign language requirement has hamstrung ND with a couple recruits, but "academic requirements" wouldn't make a list of the top dozen+ reasons why Notre Dame is awful at football. It's a sad, sad excuse.
Thanks for proving my point in one single post....
Kelly's so dislikeable because he's one of those guys who just cannot hide how arrogant he truly is. I'd put Petrino in that category too. It's just written all over them. At least guys like Tressel, while arrogant, were convincing enough to hide it. But not Kelly.
Remove the grass that Rockne coached on and the Four Horsemen played on from Notre Dame stadium?
Next thing you know they'll be joining a conference ;-)
I work with an ND fan who just told me two days ago to "take it to the bank" that ND only loses to Oklahoma and Stanford, beats Michigan and USC by double digits, and goes to the National Championship Game.
been thinking that they'll be AHEAD of Michigan by double digits, only to lose by 4 in the final minute for the 4th season in a row.
