Sure, the football program is a hot mess. I didn't attend ND, but have been a fan since birth, due several family members having attended before I was born. Is it still a special (unique) place? Well everyone is welcome to their own opinions, but for me, hell yes it is. I had been to at least one game per year since 1992 (Snow Bowl) - I was 12 - and there is still no place like being on campus on a football weekend for me. I missed the last two years of going to a game after the birth of our third son, but am starting a new streak this year - with my 6yr old. I cannot wait to introduce him to everything I've come to love about ND - My own traditions on campus that have been passed down to me.
