    Notre Dame

    Notre Dame has tremendous history and tradition throughout the years. In the past 7-10 years Notre Dame has flat out struggled. They get good recruits (according to the recruiting services) and they have good coaches (at least when they are hired).

    Granted, they play top teams every year, but they also play teams the should handle with ease too (cupcakes). Navy has won 3 of 4 against ND, get beat by Connecticut at home, get beat by Tulsa at home, get beat by Syracuse at home, and get beat by Air Force at home. Since 1997 their winning percentage is .569. Their overall winning percentage throughout the history of Notre Dame football is .733.

    When does it get to the point when Notre Dame needs to join a conference just to stay relevant? Being the "national team" just isn't cutting it for them anymore as far as I am concerned. The next time that the Big 10 wants to expand I think that Notre Dame needs to jump at the chance.

    No, stay independent and i'm happy to keep watching them lose again and again. I love it. College football doesn't need them to be relevant...life moves on.

    Notre Dame will not join a conference. Who wants to play in places like Ames, Iowa every year?

    I think it's sad to see them like this. They are one of the few super powers that I don't hate. Maybe because I'm Catholic.

    Re: Notre Dame

    There coach should have been fired for getting that kid killed this week




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Yes, that was negligence bordering on criminal. A tragedy that should never ever happen!
