So how's the Bend doing, anyway?

Notre Dame's football team
Doesn't really suck this year.
No, I'm not drunk. Or high. And I don't have a history of mental instability either. And, yes, I actually have watched the games this year too. And I have come to the reasoned, rational, calm decision that Notre Dame's offense may not be as bad as it looks.
The O-line, however, is.
The offense of any football team begins and ends with the offensive line. If the tailback doesn't have any holes to run through, he's not going to gain any yards. If the quarterback drops back and then immediately has defensive linemen in his face, he's going to go "Oh, SHIT, don't let them EAT ME ALIVE!!!" not "hmmm... can I get the ball to Grimes?" And then he's going to be going "owwww... hey, man, are my ribs sticking out of my chest?" after he's been sacked for the EIGHTH DAMN TIME.
The defense was ranked in the bottom of the nation last year. Even a new defensive coordinator isn't going to make the guys faster or stronger in a year. And, actually, the defense hasn't been playing too horribly until it gets late in the game and they've been on the field for three straight quarters.
So, basically, my opinion is that the O-line is a piece of crap. And you can't evaluate an offense in terms of quarterbacking and running unless there's a line. It begins and ends with the line. Put Peyton Manning behind ND's crap line and he's not going to do a hell of a lot better. If, however, you stuck Armando Allen and Jimmy Clausen behind Peyton's line, you might get a good idea of how well these guys can do.
Until then, I'm holding off jumping on the "ND's offense sucks" bandwagon. I'm riding the one named "ND's offensive LINE sucks" instead.
Does anyone else agree with me? Or am I just living in "Everything's alright" land?

Hello all :)
My name is Becky and I am writing a research paper on the role of religion at American Universities. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to answer some questions on the role of religion at Notre Dame? If you're interested please comment with your e-mail address and I'll get back to you ASAP
(so sorry if this isn't allowed- mods feel free to delete if that's the case) Current Mood: hopeful

Hello! I hope this is allowed. If not, please feel free to delete it or ask me to.
I am looking for some help getting into a show at Notre Dame this September. My favorite band is playing and they only allow those with valid student ID's of Notre Dame or St. Mary's to enter, and needless to say, I just graduated from IU so my ID (and dare I say it, my degree) is worthless. I would love it if someone could lend me theirs so I could buy the tickets and enter at the door, and then I would gladly return it, unharmed. :D Nothing unusual or strange about it; I just want to see a good show. And in return, I will gladly fork over a little extra cash for the trouble (let's negotiate). The ID would need to be of a girl, which is the only restriction. Comment if you think you may be able to help. Thanks!

Hey all, I'm a new guy in the group.
What's happening everyone? My name's Kameron, Kam for short, and I'm from Lafayette, Louisiana. My godfather attended and graduated from Notre Dame a while back and ever since then, I've wanted to go there. He actually gave me the best present I could ever hope for this year when he mailed me two tickets to watch ND in the Sugarbowl down the road in New Orleans! I lost my mind when I found out I was going to watch the fighting Irish play for the first time ever right here in Louisiana. You all know the final outcome of the game, but it doesn't matter to me because I had a blast watching the amazing team and esp. the AWESOME band and drumline Notre Dame has. I'm a drummer myself and I loved the pregame rituals and cadences the drumline would play. Sorry, I digress. Anyway, I'm currently a sophmore in high school, but it's never too early to start looking at schools, right? I was wondering if any of you had advice that would be helpful for applying to ND, anything is appreciated and every tid bit helps, so don't hold back. Thanks to all of you and God bless,

hi all. new member here! i got to attend the nd vs. army game a couple weeks ago, which was AMAZING. it was also my first time visiting nd, and i fell in love with it. i'm only a high school junior, but i thought i'd ask a few random ?'s since nd's all i've been thinking about for the past couple weeks :)
1. the admissions meeting we went to really stressed the importance of the essay. what kind of things do the admissions people usually go for? i have no idea what i would write about to make myself stand out in a crowd.
2. i read an earlier post about the science department at nd, and some people were of the opinion it doesn't really prepare you well for med school. while i know i have a lot of time to change my mind, medicine is what i want to go into for now. opinions on this? does anyone have experience with majoring in a science and then going to med school?
3. i also interviewed with st. mary's while i was up there. i basically know i could get in there, and it's always an option if i get rejected from nd. anyone know any st.mary's girls? do they like going there? and do a lot of people transfer from st. mary's to nd?
thanks for answering any of these! go irish!

Maybe I'm being a bit naive, so a little clarification would be great, but exactly what has Texas done this year to set them apart from the pack, really? I have a hard time separating UT from the rest of the one loss teams. Auburn and Florida seem to be on the verge of getting loss #2
, Auburn more-so.
And after Troy Smith's performance this weekend, should he still be the frontrunner for the Heisman? I say no, but I bet he stays on top.

Charlie Went down to Georgia...
I had a stroke of genius today and wrote this. I thought you guys would appreciate it. Charlie went down to Georgia,
He was looking for an Irish win,
And future Heisman Trophy,
The one and only B. Quinn...
When he came across this Tech coach,
Pulling insults out of his butt,
Charlie approached that little roach and said,
“Here, let me tell you what…
I bet you didn’t know it,
But I can talk some shit too,
And if you care to take a dare,
I’ll make a bet with you.
Now you talk a pretty good game son,
But give ol’ C-Dub his due.
I’ll bet a helmet of Gold against your pride,
Cause I know we’re better than you.”
The coach said, “My name’s Chan Gailey,
And I’m pissing my pants,
I’ll take your bet,
But I’m gonna regret,
Cause I’m the biggest pansy that’s ever been.”
Georgia Tech you better start countin’ down the days,
Cause The Irish broke loose in Georgia and Charlie calls the plays,
With the Shark and our defense we’re definitely gonna plunder,
As we raise up echoes and shake down the thunder.
Go Irish! Beat Jackets! Current Mood: excited

New girl in town.. Horse boarding??
This isn't related to the school...

Anyone have any recommendation??

need a job?
hey, anyone looking for a part time job?? I'm not the person that hires but i know we need someone, the hours i think we really need someone are monday - thursday 3-5, and weekends which sat we're open 9-6 and sun 9-5. I'm not saying you'd be working all these hours exactly, possibly if you wanted, but these are basically the hours im unable to work and im like the "top dog" haha. I think those are awesome hours for younger people, not too early at all and not too late. The job is basically being a cashier at the College football hall of fame downtown. It's a pretty easy job, during the school year we aren't too busy, last year I did about all my studying/assignments at work no problem. There's a lot to know (not about football, just general cashiering stuff) but it's very simple to catch on to it all. so if you're interested please bring your resume (we don't do applications) to the ticket counter inside the hall of fame. or any other questions feel free to ask. thanks!

Room for rent!
I'm putting an ad in the Tribune too, but I thought I'd get this out first:ND students seeking college-age to sublet second-floor room at 333 N. Hill Street from 1 January to 30 June 2007. On #13 Transpo line, within walking distance of #7 Transpo line, which goes to the Hesburgh Library, the U.P. Mall, and downtown (passes S.B. Library and Fiddler's), which is convenient in cold weather; short walk to either campus or downtown for nice days; very near to Corby's and Club 23!
If interested, contact Chad at (574) 234-2445 or leave me a comment/send an e-mail.

I'm working at this engineering camp this summer on campus, as well as taking a class. Engineering camp is 6 weeks, summer classes 7. 7 weeks required - 6 weeks paid = 1 week need place to live. I was planning on staying in the dorms somehow, but the hall managers have closed up the kitchen, so I can't even cook here. I really don't want to pay for dining hall food... Any suggestions on what to do?
