    Notre Dame - Reilly Gets it Right

    Rick Reilly got this right in my opinion. Golic defends ND because he misses the point of the article, and he is looking at it through golden colored glasses. If nothing else it is good entertainment.

    Reilly's Article
    Notre Dame Irish have relegated themselves to insignificance - ESPN

    Golic's Response to the Article
    ESPN CHICAGO Video: Watch Sports Videos and Highlights Online - ESPN Chicago

    Reilly's response should come up after Golic's rant.

    Golic isn't wrong that it isn't Notre Dame's fault, but he is wrong in that Reilly wasn't saying it was, he was blaming, the BCS, NCAA and media.

    Re: Notre Dame - Reilly Gets it Right

    Golic missed the point of the article, I also read it as the media, CFB fans, and NCAA admins are allowing all this to happen. And it's all true, I don't get why we all bend over backwards for Notre Dame.

    There was a time and place for that, but it has long since passed. There was a time ND was college football, but that is clearly not the case anymore. But they still draw a considerable audience when on TV, so as long as people still tune in I suppose they will get the coverage. But they don't deserve it.

    Agreed. I always get irritated when i see "representatives for each of the major conferences... and notre dame's AD" in a story. Why should they get as much representation as an entire conference?

    ND never deserved preferential treatment.

    Re: Notre Dame - Reilly Gets it Right

    No golden dome homer will ever get it. It's tradition. It's prestige. It's history. All of these things will have people putting Notre Dame on the a level playing field with Alabama, LSU and USC because they are recognizable to the casual audience.

    They are still a huge brand name but so is Walmart and right now Notre Dame is the Walmart of college football.

    I think that is the most accurate thing I have ever read on CF.
