    Losing to Tulsa at home. Yikes. That's the equivalent to LaTech, ULL or ULM.

    Now a 6-6 season is not even likely.

    They hit all time lows so often it's hard to keep track.

    As long as they have so much as ONE win, they've not gotten low enough for me.

    The Willingham losses were much worse because there was no hope and we knew we weren't going to get any better with him as the coach.

    Brain Kelly has won everywhere else, and I have no doubt he can turn ND program around. With a new coach trying to implement a new system, its not surprising to see ND struggle. Its like Nick Saban lost to Louisiana-Monroe in his first year at Alabama. Urban Scumbag Meyer struggled in his first season at Florida. Plus, all the injuries, including our QB, didn't help either...

    The lesson to learn is that it is the program and NOT the coach. Its amazing how many people do not get this.

    Yeah but you lost to Tulsa.

    And it's not like you have scrubs out on that field. And your backup QB probably played as well or better than Crist would have otherwise.

    Did Willingham lose to the likes of a Tulsa?

    The talking heads on ESPN and an exclusive TV deal with NBC are the only things keeping Notre Dame football relevant anymore. And they're losing ground with ESPN.

    when is their contract with nbc up? do they have a strong enough fan base that if they keep losing like this that it will be renewed? or is half the audience tuning in cause they want to see nd get beat, thereby always insuring viewers.
