There was a minor article and unsurprisingly there were negative comments of the coach and ND. A lot of those comments, I thought, were reasonable. One I thought was ridiculous:
ND is not and will never be the same university that won all those games in past years. Not because of coaches or players. It's the university that has changed. It has lost it's grounding in God's word. That is the reason for it's failure. It was once great because it was good. It is now a liberal Politically Correct Program, not a university.I really hate it when people try to infer that when things happen in this world, it is because of God. God is blessing you when good things happen (because you're good too) or he's cursing you when bad things happen (because you're behaving like the devil). It's like when that televangelist (I forget his name at the moment) blamed Hurricane Katrina because of America's sinful behavior. Or how about the Phelps clan thanking God for dead soldiers because of all the homos. If that were true, you'd think that God could have better aim and actually flooded the French Quarter instead, of you know--EVERYTHING ELSE. Or maybe God could actually strike down those queers with lighting bolts instead of straight soldiers being torn into by IEDs.
So hear that ND people? Behave yourself and God just might come down from the sky and help you win a game. I have it on good authority that he's an Irish fan.
