A tad off subject, but here's where I really get frustrated w/ ND fans:
Check out this post from www.insidetheville.com
Why should ND join a conference??? They play one of the top schedules year in and year out, the reason Navy plays them close every year is due to the fact that they are "rivals". They have a good history with each other which is why they are considered to be rivals. Back to the conf. thing... they rake in enough cash already! No one could count how many rich alumni that institution has to fork up the dough for them. No need to be throwing in "YOU" during your little (griping) just because your poor little Mountaineers blow.
I had to sensor the post somewhat, because there was some profanity. We haven't had a problem with that yet, and we don't need to start. :)
Anyway, half of my family grew up ND fans. I used to follow the Irish awhile myself, until they completely fell apart under Davie, who has thankfully been fired. ND football can be nice to watch, but I do think it is past time for ND to be in a conference. FYI, I do not think ND played one of the best schedules this year. I'd prefer to give that honor to teams like USC, Miami, FSU, or even (gag) Auburn. Let's not forget that NBC is the same network that has lost both the NFL and the NBA, and is now looking to televise Arena Football. ::)
Wow, what fun. ::) NBC needs to get on the ball, and snatch a conference like the Big East or the Big 12 or even CUSA from ABC/ESPN and televise them, but they continue to televise only the Irish. ND's uppity attitude is something else also, and I will rejoice when the BCS finally forces them into the Big East against their will. ;D
Even if ND could blow out WVU, I'm pretty sure Auburn, Alabama, and my Georgia Dawgs could top ND.
