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 think the admin knows the goal. They also know they can't by btd
tell anyone else what that goal is because doing so will guarantee they fail to achieve their goal.
The admin's goal is to be "in the conversation" and by that they mean exactly what we have had the past 5 years. Quite literally exactly. Their theory is if ND can somehow stumble their way into a playoff once every five years that will keep the cash cow alive even if the other four years are 4 or 5 loss years.
They can't publish that goal because they know that will kill the cash cow. Even kids that never saw ND when we were last a real football team (1988 - 1993) will run from ND if that goal is made public. Within five years the bottom would fall out. Instead, they have to publicly act like they care to some extent.
