    The season is a question mark right now.

    Someone with the screen name of AFan summed it up perfectly in the comment section:

    Notre DameÖbeing Notre DameÖwith that Huge Fan BaseÖHas always felt that they were Above-The-Fray as far a Conferences are concerned. They will have to Pay-the-Price of their ďSuperiority ComplexĒ now.

    Yeah, heaven forbid a school negotiate itself a better deal. What a bunch of losers. They totally should have had the foresight to predict a pandemic of global proportions .

    I get it - that person, AFan, or whatever their stupid name is are/were upset that they, or their kids, were too average to get into N.D. I mean, shit, I didn't get accepted into Georgetown or Michigan, but I don't hate those schools just for that.

    N.D.> the haters, and I ******* said it.
    I'm smooth with it because I know what to do with it.

    ND isn't the elite school they were in decades past. Yes, they've had double digit winning seasons 3 of the last 4 years, but they hadn't had back to back double win seasons since '92-'93. They've had 9 seasons over those 21 seasons of wins less than 60% of his games. They're on 6-12 in bowl games over the last 26 seasons, with only 1 major bowl game win.

    Although that puts them well above schools like Wyoming, that doesn't make them an "A" list school that parents want to see their kids go to, unless they're Catholic.

    Because N.D. has the gall to put academics before athletics. I know, crazy concept. But I'm talking about the scrub AFan and their respective mediocrity to get into the school. As in, academics.

    N.D. > The haters.

    Well, on 1 hand, they are tied for 15th in academics with Vanderbilt https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges...l-universities

    On the other hand, your theory doesn't explain someone like me who has no kids to send to any college.

    Are you AFan? I need to know right now.

    15th out of how many unis and colleges? Exactly.

    On the other hand, I didn't reference you, I reference that fool, AFan.

    If you want to hate N.D. go ahead. If you want to mock greatness, go ahead.

    No, just someone who doesn't like elite colleges who have an unfair advantage in recruitmentment. If a kid can choose to go to Wyoming where you're guaranteed to be a starting RB your freshman year, or ND were you'll be 5th, who will most kids sign with? ND, just because they're ND, even though they haven't had an elite football program for most of the last 2 1/2 decades. The Florida schools, LA schools, Alabama, etc. have an even more unfair recruitment advantage in football, just as other schools who are elite in other sports enjoy the same unfair recruitment advantage.

    The irony of this post. People talk all the time about how ND would be better if they, oh I don't know, took dumber kids who were better at sports.

    So on one hand you bash them for not being elite, then you point out that they have an unfair advantage?

    All is fair in love and college recruitment.

    Prior to the last 4 years, they had a "B" list football program, but they have been "A" list over significant stretches of their history. This gives them an unfair recruitment advantage over schools like Wyoming that no parent of a kid with NFL aspirations want to send their kid to unless they have no other choice.

    How is that unfair?

    Especially when a huge chunk of their players go there because it's a Catholic/Christian school?

    You're literally complaining about one of the few schools in college football that actually gives a shit about academics.

    When you have a long history of success, people might care about you even if you fall off. They've been good again for awhile. BUt I'm sorry, I remember them making big bowl games even when I was back in high school, so it's not like they had this huge drought of ineptitude. Moreover, even if that was true, that shows you how much of an 'advantage' they really had during those stretches.

    Your position is meritless.

    I'll waste no more time on this attack against the Irish.

    So you don't recall me posting:

    This isn't just about the Irish, this is about the entire collegiate sports system in which the elite programs have an unfair recruitment advantage over everyone else for reasons that I previously stated but you probably can't recall.
