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.

Golson would be just fine if ND had a run first offense by btd
He might not be as good as Zaier given he can't run the read option as well, but we had an incredibly easy path to 10 wins this year if we simply ran the ball more every single game. Golson also isn't 100% incapable of running read option. He could have done it much more this year and that alone would have made defenses slightly more honest.
We finished 8-5 with freaking losses to Northwestern, UL, ASU and a pretty bad USC team. Any running game at all would have easily flipped 2 of those 4 losses into wins. The offense we just saw against LSU would have avoided at least half of those turnovers at ASU.
USC might not have been winable even with this offense because we really didn't have a single DL or DB to play that game and even if we traded scores with them with the correct offense, they probably would have won by 7. It would have looked a hell of a lot better though. We will never know what effect it would have had on USC's offense if our own offense showed up at the game.
