1. As horrendous as the second half was, the fact remains ND played 29 high-quality minutes in that game. There was maybe one such minute yesterday.
2. Ara announced his resignation 15 days after that game. Remember how you felt after that announcement, and compare it to how you'd feel if Kelly announced his departure in the next couple of weeks. I dare say anyone who followed ND football in 1974 and has cognitive functions today would say the same thing.
