I'm giving Weis credit for being as competitive as Kelly has ever been during those two years, playing a much more difficult schedule, and for coaching the most epic game in the post Holtz era. I...

I agree with you that, at the time, Weis's loss to Navy was the low point, and probably still is given how he didn't rebound when Clausen was a senior (the Syracus loss also being a low point), but...

It's as if that 31 point loss to Michigan never happened this year to some people on this board.

I understand that Kelly has had three good years, after going 4-8 in 2016. However, your original statement was, " look at where we were from 2000-2010 to where we are now." I'm just pointing out a...

Yeah, but you ignored the schedule disparity. Kelly would have gotten crushed by both Pete Caroll teams that Weis lost to, along with that 2006 Michigan team which ended up a #8 team. Kelly would...

I disagree with this. Weis went 19-6 and went to two major bowls. Kelly went 22-3 and is playing a 5 loss team in a crap bowl. The perception that this is a better job than when Weis had it is iffy...

If there's a bright jewel out there who can bring in an unstoppable, revolutionary offense, why would he come to ND? It's like the old myth of ND is fogging people's brains. Modern football is a...

Can you imagine Holtz having an offensive game plan like Kelly's NC State or this year's Michigan one? Can you imagine a Holtz offense where his offensive linemen continually jump offside and it...

Of course there were. You can add USC to that list. However, there were two different factors working back then that made ND still elite back then. Hesburgh wanted to integrate ND football and the...

Pull my head out of my azz? Pull your head out of your azz. They aren't going to win a NC. There is no savior coach coming (why would he?) and the restrictions will remain.

I'm not oblivious. I'm stating where I think ND will be in 25 years based on your point about the modern era. Nothing short of minor league football will save this descent.

Jenkins Quote about Kelly

There you have it.

I really wonder about when my generation dies off, if ND will put another stake in the heart of the program and become Northwestern. As for fan support, I already see a...

What year did you start watching ND football, because anyone who has watched ND football for as long as I have knows you are incorrect.

I hear ya. My family and I have had season tickets since 1968. I was really hoping that Brey would capitalize on the run he had with Grant, Connaughton, Bonzie , Auguste and Farrell but he's taken a...

Paul Chryst - Wisconsin. I don't know what "resistant" means in this context. They want to get over the hump, but don't have the talent and depth.

I think we lack enough elite players and high quality and depth. I don't think new coordinators are going to make up for that.

I would like to see a lineup of Laz, Durham, Mooney, Rex and Gibbs in a low post offense and a zone defense. Durham and Mooney are both good passers and Laz would benefit by getting closer shots....

I watched the Ohio State - Michigan game. I hope we're closing the gap in recruiting, but the gap between Ohio State and us is very large right now. We have maybe 3 players that would start for them....
