Notre Dame brings good image to NCAA
Orlando Sentinel, by Shannon J. Owens

Original Article

Posted By:smcchk, 11/26/2012 11:01:28 PM

College football fans are generally pretty clear about their feelings on Notre Dame.You either love ´em or hate ´em. For so long, they've been the NCAA's trophy wife minus the trophy. But this year, they've finally got style and substance and for that, it's hard not to love them. Two brands were salvaged Saturday after Notre Dame's epic defensive goal-line stance against USC in Southern California clinched its spot in the BCS National Championship game in January; Notre Dame football and, more important, college football itself. Do you remember the sad storylines in discussion this time last year

They may be committed to the scholar athlete, but are they committed to the teachings of the Church? How many times have they welcomed the most pro-abortion president in history as an honored guest to their campus?

The Notre Dame fans are also some of the most arrogant, obnoxious, demanding fans it has ever been my "privilege" to host in the sport´s bar I once owned. On any given Saturday, they would DEMAND that their game would receive prominence on the big screens, even though their team was not preforming well and it wasn´t the "big/featured/playoff meaningful" game of the day. And God forbide you should actually feature the college teams from your state. I dreaded seeing the Notre Dame fans walk in the door. My servers didn´t much like them either. Talk about ATTITUDE. BTW, I used to be a Notre Dame fan prior to owning the sport´s bar...and I´m Catholic, so I´m not a fan of their politcal antics either.

A few Ohio State players exchange some junk for tattooes and the school is hit by the NCAA compliance committee with a major infraction and banned from a national championship shot this year. The coaching staff at Notre Dame makes an irresponsible call which kills a student and they go to the BCS national championship game this year. Tell me how that is fair NCAA.

growing up I never liked ND. Then they stunk for a while and I sort of felt sorry forthem. Now they´re back....and I´m beginning to not like them again. but it´s great for college sports to have a school like ND back in prominence. I´ve never heard of them cutting corners or stupid player mistakes. Good for them.

#4, I forgot about the tower blowing over. Not sure if that´s an NCAA violation. Tats and Tee Shirts are a dumb violation, but that´s the NCAA for you.

And I know this is going to tick everybody off, but part of Paterno´s problem was that he refused to be PC. That´s why the media went after him. ND is trying to be PC so the media leaves them alone. Just my opinion. Sandusky was a chance to get JoePa.

It´s not just Sandusky. Paterno´s career-ending mistake is that he and those above him in the university´s administration knew that a pedophile had attacked children repeatedly on campus under the auspices of the university, and did *nothing* to stop it.

Thanks for posting, and love your user name! To this day I can´t hear the song Brick House without remembering a very funny Keenan Revue skit playing on that name. I have not been pleased/proud of many decisions made at ND in recent years, but I am exceptionally proud to be ranked #1 in the BCS and #1 in the NCAA Graduation Success Rates standings for all student athletes at FBS schools. That´s a true rarity. And two other stats of my own that warm my heart: % of ND FB players who know the words and actually sing Notre Dame, Our Mother after each game = 100%. Corny, I know, but I love the unity and identification with the school. And another one I love: % of FB players or other scholarship athletes at ND who live in a special athletic dorm, wing or suite = 0%. We are ND...ALL of us. That´s part of what makes it so special.

Don´t tale the media or Freeh´s account about what happened at Penn State, If you do, you are a moron,
.

Learn about Vicar, Corbett, the Second MIle, the BOT, it´ relationship with the NYT, etc.

Paterno spent his WHOLE life looking after young kids. NO WAY did he abandon that principle, especially for Sandusky, with whom he was not close.

The truth will come out eventually, just like it will about the POS we have residing in the WH.

Tune in to a home game and you get the Zombie, talking up ND football like a local announcer. Switch over to ESPN to hear Lou do the same. Go to mass the next day and hear the priests give thanks for a UND victory. I don´t get the fascination - don´t they care about how Boston College did? Or don´t Jesuits matter? And if the NCAA won´t let the other UND (North Dakota) be the Fighting Sioux any more, then why are the Fighting Irish still allowed to take the field every weekend? And what´s Irish about a cathedral in France, anyway? Say what you want about Charlie Weis, but he was the first to make his team stand silently with the Navy players during the post-game playing of the latters´ alma matre (and that was in 2006 - BEFORE Navy started kicking their butts every year).

I´m glad for ND football after so many disappointing years. I feel Ohio State´s pain. The sanctions impact the wrong people--Urban Meyer and the current team are paying for the "sins" of others. The same goes for Penn State and Bill O´Brien´s team.I was not a fan of Paterno´s coaching strategy, although he was a great recruiter and supportive of his players´ academics. For an interesting take on the Sandusky story, this video is worth the time:

Norte Dame´s achievement is amazing, #1 in football (and several other varsity sports) and #1 in student graduation rate. But this definitely seems to be the "hate ´em" crowd.

For decades, the definition of a winning season at USC has started with whether we beat UCLA and Notre Dame. We could win every game and lose either of these two and the season was a disappointment. Having said that, I was proud of the image of Notre Dame last Saturday. Clean-cut looking kids, hair high and tight, and very few celebrations as I recall. You know you´ve crossed over into the old geezer category when you can´t understand why a football player has a weave and long braids and also believe 60´s/70´s Coach John McKay and his offense/defense coaches Craig Fertig & Marv Goux were among the last real coaches at USC...builders of men!

It´s clear that ND revamped their image and their football skills this year. In looking at their schedule, I see they´ve had several close games. I did watch them this past weekend just to see if they´re as good as the press they get. I hope they get to play Alabama in the national championship game.

I feel for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes having to endure the sanctions because of the NCAA and their stupid ruling.

No one knows the real name of the Port Hills Groper, the Muslim refugee who stalked and attacked over a dozen women jogging in Port Hills, even though he was arrested, tried and sentenced. Instead the New Zealand court gave him “permanent name suppression” to protect his status in his Muslim community. Judge Jane Farish, who had told a Maori rapist who had lured an Australian tourist into a dark street and beat her while trying to tear off her clothing “If I had my way I would release you today,” let the groper off with community service because his actions

For years, experts have been warning people in the American West they will have to make do with less water in the future. That dryer future already may have arrived. This year, for the first time in history, lower flows in the Colorado River have prompted the federal government to reduce the amount of water flowing into Lake Mead reservoir outside Las Vegas. Bureau of Reclamation officials say if the river´s level doesn´t increase soon, there´s a 50 percent chance that by next year, residents in Arizona, southern Nevada and California will have to start rationing water.

Lawmakers are attaching some strings to $33 million in aid to Pakistan, making the funds contingent on freeing the doctor who helped the CIA find Usama bin Laden. The GOP-controlled House Appropriations Committee inserted language that appears to withhold the foreign aid unless the State Department certifies Dr. Shakil Afridi is released from prison, where he’s serving a 33-year sentence on a dubious conspiracy conviction. The condition left Pakistani officials fuming. “Any linkage of US assistance to this case is not in keeping with the spirit of cooperation between the two countries,” said Pakistan Foreign Office spokeswoman Tasneem Aslam.

With Republicans tying themselves in knots over the Democrats’ destructive, but superficially appealing, demand that unemployment benefits be extended to two and a half years, I return to my suggestion that Republicans stop playing defense and go on offense. For every issue that MSNBC loves to prattle on about, gloating that it will cost Republicans this or that demographic, there’s an equivalent issue to use against the Democrats. (The difference is: Our proposals would actually be good for the country.) In addition to my repeated suggestion that Republicans introduce bills to institutionalize the dangerous mentally ill and force the Democrats

As Russia prepares to strut its stuff before the world at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, the economic foundation of Russian power and prosperity is crumbling, thanks to a strategic weapon developed by the United States. That weapon is fracking, and it is paying havoc with Russia´s ability to exercise power on the world stage. Three articles lay out the devastating consequences of this technological revolution developed mostly not by a national laboratory, huge government initiative, or top scientists, but by guys out in the Texas and Oklahoma oil patches.

Republican leaders on the House Science Committee are accusing the Environmental Protection Agency of disregarding science in its push to impose carbon dioxide limits on power plants. Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, and 20 other Republican lawmakers sent a letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy on Thursday, claiming the agency has "muzzled" members of its independent science advisory board. The EPA released a proposal in September that would set emissions caps for new coal-fired power plants and would likely require the industry to use carbon-capture technology, which involves burying the carbon underground. Critics of the proposed rule say the technology,

Twenty years ago, New York’s long nightmare ended with a Giuliani victory over Mayor Dinkins. Now the nightmare returns as former Dinkins staffer and terrorist supporter Bill de Blasio will begin wrecking the city where Dinkins and his Democratic predecessors left off. Bill de Blasio vowed to undo Giuliani’s reforms and turn back the clock on fighting crime and terrorism. Giuliani’s victory was a wake-up call to Democrats that one of the more dangerous cities in the country had rejected their liberal soft-on-crime policies that had made it unlivable. Bill de Blasio’s victory tells them that soft-on-crime is popular again.

Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as “(The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to

And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue.

Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. Speaking with Mitchell about the need for immigration reform, Powell said that reforming the system was critical. “We are

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer.

Geraldo Rivera took on Bill O’Reilly Friday night over whether O’Reilly was disrespectful to President Obama in their big Super Bowl interview. Rivera gave O’Reilly some benefit of the doubt, but other than that thought O’Reilly was a bit too confrontational and didn’t give Obama the kind of respect a president normally deserves. Rivera argued it was less like an interview and more like a meeting of the minds with the “President of Most of the White Guys of America” (O’Reilly) against the president of the rest of the country, and told O’Reilly that it was out of line for him

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

This is either a glaring admission of defeat from the White House or… no, that’s really all it could be. After weeks of defending the cancellation of health plans insurers discontinued in 2013 in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s coverage mandates, the White House announced in November of last year that it was urging insurers to reinstate those plans. The catch was, of course, that most insurers would be unable to turn on a dime and reinstate those plans. Furthermore, the administration allowed individual states leeway to determine whether or not they would even allow insurers to reinstate
