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.

Perfect storm by mitquinn
Success under Holtz -> shamed by success -> corporate money era begins -> NBC contract -> scholarship limitations -> ND abandons traditional athletic director role for corporate stewards -> rise of ESPN influence -> college football parity -> BCS bowl model -> most corrupt era of CFB we have seen yet -> now we are in an era of concentrated power as exhibited by the playoff committee and conference commissioner rainmaker/rock stars.
In all this ND has not made much adaptation, but IMO trying to stick to their model too tightly.
I dont see the willingness to win as much as the other schools did when they were down for a few years.
Square peg to round hole.
