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.

I thought it was great seeing Devine on the ND sidelines of by RocketShark
the 1989 Fiesta Bowl.
He was at that 1981 LSU game that I linked to below. Gerry had Devine speak to the team at a practice. As Devine observed in his book it was a smooth transition. Contrast that with the way people have become ex-Notre Dame head coaches in this century: by being fired for incompetence. Makes return appearances rather awkward.
Another return trip was in 1985 for the MSU game where he was honored at halftime for his hall of fame induction. Again, not something we're likely to see with those three recent goofs.
