This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Reading some of this makes me glad I was sober. by jakam31
I only lost one friend during the game. He is a Virginia Tech fan who has taken me to games at VT with him but he texted me "Roll Tide." The exchange between us was ugly and I haven't spoken to him since because I don't care that it got that way. Had I been drinking it likely would have been worse though, so I am happy with my own decision to not embibe.
I'm not above losing friends over something like that game or any future ND games for that matter. One thing I have learned over the past 6 weeks is that there is more animosity towards ND than I remember growing up. Due to that newly found information, I may lose friends in the future over ND football and it doesn't bother me in the least.
