The idea that there is a force in the universe that just prevents ND from being able to win when Stanford, who has recruited substantially worse than ND over the past seven years (the Kelly era) and has a fraction of the tradition to recruit from compared to ND, has had 6 top 15 finishes, 3 top 10 finishes, and 2 top 5 finishes is insulting. It's a lazy, self-serving attempt to turn failure into praise for ND for being so gosh darned virtuous. It's stupid. It's cowardly. It's Pharisaical. And it deserves to be insulted.
