    Because of stubbborn leaders

    Had more success in both football and basketball as a full-fledged independent.

    Then they did tis half-ass move joining the BigEast in all sports except football.

    WHAT THEY SHOULD DO is join the freaking Big 10 IN ALL SPORTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That conf has been begging them to join for years.

    And with Penn States problems - this would be good time to join the Big 10.

    I thoughtthat Notre Dame would maybe win 10 NCs in a row (a la John Wooden) under Lou Holtz - after they were so strongin the late 80s/early 90s under Lou Holtz - then they signed the NBC TV contract which wouldmake them even stronger.

    Something went wrong -had only one dedcent team since then - the96 team -and thatwas so-so.

    They need to get their act together - bolt the dying Big East - and join the Big 10, theBig 12 or maybe even the Pac 12 -as absurd as that may sound.

    and i'm not surprised they went with the big east. They weren't
    going to go to a conference they couldn't win, I mean where's the
    fun in that? However, I've seen the land mine schedule they have and
    on October 27th, the only thing they will leave Norman with is a nice check
    from the athletic department, and a big RED boot print on their butts...

    So much for ND's easy schedule - which they are bashed over - in 2012 - have to play Stanford (used to be a gimmie) Micjigan, Mich St USC - the service academies (always toough cookies) andnow I understand Oklahoma.

    They have have a chance to win every game - orlose every game.

    I suppose technically they have a chance to win every game. The opposing teams could develop paralysing stomach flu the day before the games.

    But Mich, Mich St, and OK are gonna thrash ND. USC will be able to pull their starters out before halftime.

    I'd settle for another Austin Carr.
