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 gave Swarbrick way too much credit............ by Ty WEbb
I truly believed how he handled the whole playoff/conference shifting situation was a sign he understood ND's unique position in college football and the importance of its greatness and tradition.
I was wrong. Staying independent was about one thing - whoring ND out and hording every last penny that falls from the sky.
His statements to the Observer were sad to read. How anyone can sit there and say that what has happened over the last 5 years has met his expectations is beyond puzzling.
People will retort with, "well what did you think he'd say?"
I think a competent AD can answer that question by saying that he's disappointed in the results but that he has faith in his head coach. But Swarbrick didn't say that at all. He basically just said Kelly has done a superb job.
ND football is beyond fucked. There isn't one person in a position of authority at ND that has a clue.
