thanks for the note. Always feel free to post on articles, it doesn't matter how ling after its writen, you'd be surprised how long after an article comments still come in. Yours would have ignited a few Notre Dame fans too :)
THanks for reading and the note
Jeff does not have any awards.
I read your article about Jeff Long and it reminded me of Chris Mortensen on Mike and Mike. Listen to the link, for a lack of a better word Mortensen politlely b*tch slaps Golic when he tries to put down Long.

Please give my sympathies to your wife. Just when Miss fans think they are going to win, Houston pulls them back in! On a more serious note, I don't know where you live but last Wednesday they replayed the 7th Heaven game here in Central Arkansas. If you don't have it, I can make a DVD copy but let me warn you, it is hard to watch. After watching Petrino's QB's with their strong fundamentals, you will scream at the TV. Set your feet! Shorten your stride! Don't throw off your back foot! It is still a fun game to watch but I recommend going directly to the end of regulation and watch from there, the game is still like 2 hours long, lol.

Just wanted to say, thanks for your response and expect to hear from some of the "Whining Irish!"

Dude, I just read your article about Notre Dame needing to join a conference or running the danger of becoming irrelevant. I was going to respond on the article but it has been so long, I wanted to make sure that you got my take. You hit the nail right on top of the head and the ND Dame fans don't have a clue. I am an Arkansas fan and always pulled for Coach Holtz but their fans made that impossible while he was there and after reading their responses to your article, I see nothing has changed. I love the guy who makes a point of telling someone that wears a Tigers cap in a profile pic, that OSU's National Championship was won on a BS call. I hope he doesn't read this and start leaving me dirty messages about Texas, that would break my heart!
The reason they have the NBC contract is that Dick Ebersol, the head of NBC sports, is an alum. You are right in saying that they aren't going to get anywhere close to the compensation they have now, which is already below the rates earned by schools in BCS conferences. Why do they think being a member of a conference will hurt their recruiting. If you were a recruit or family of one which of the following sounds more exciting?
1) If you come to my school, you are going to play against Alabama, Auburn, LSU, South Carolina and Texas A&M in Jerry's World every year. Then in rotation you will play against teams like Florida, Geogia, and Tennessee. If you are good enough, you play in one of the biggest games of the year in the Georgia Dome and if you win that, you are going to play in the BCS Championship. If you come in 2nd, you'll have to settle for the Sugar Bowl. things are going to be cramped for a year because we just broke ground on a new $28,000,000 football facility (locker rooms, players lounge, nutrition center, coaches offices and player's tutor center).
2) If you come to Southbend you can be part of our tradition. A tradition including a movie that starred a future president as a young player, Ronald Reagan, you know the guy they held al those "would have been 100y/o if he was still alive" parties for last summer. There are two words that really define ND football, think "rockum sockum". I hate to brag but you do know Regis Philbin is a fan! Another tradition we have, we are the only regular school that plays not 1 but 2 service acadamies each year, that is what makes our strength of schedule so high. You want to see competition, I have some game film of Roger Staubach that we can watch later. Do you have a projector?
Seriously, the only way ND is ever going to join a conference is if the USCG and Merchant Marine acadamies started football programs and joined Army, Navy, Air Force, and the Citadel to form a league where if ND finishes with a winning record or if their fans vote that they played really, really, hard, they get an automatic spot in the BCS Championship game. These are people who said you were crazy for suggesting they join a conference where they weren't the best team. They honestly think that because they were good when "talkies" came out, they should be afforded special status. It's like Sears calling Wal-Mart, "Meanies!"
Don't these people ever question that if their FB team is so good, why did he return to S. Carolina and not South Bend when he returned to coaching?
Thanks and You rock,

Came here because I don't want to hog (pun intended) the other board. I always liked Nolan Richardson but I and most of my firends were blown away by his speech after the win at Charlotte in 94. Being from LA I assume you can understand. Small state one big college getting the majority of the booster cash and then have the guy the foundation is paying at one of the highest levels in the country, to challenge us by saying he is not our slave. We were like what tha....
Then that last year when he attacked the people of Arkansas and dare them to fire him, well that is what happened. One thing I hate though, I heard while this was going on, someone shot one of his quarter horses.
Stan Heath was a nice guy but I heard that Todd Day went into the halftime locker room and walked out and said he is "too nice". John Pelphry is still recovering from the fallout of Nolan but this years class is looking good. How is LSU looking this year.
You can tell me, I grew up in Slidell and worked for Acadian Ambulance for many years. With that said, can you do me a favor? Start a grass roots effort to swap team names with Utah, please! I am not sure but I think that is even illegal to listen to Jazz there. Do it for Pete!!

My bad, I meant 364 days, I was figuring in leap years in Italy. If it was Germany it would be 359 but it is Italy so it is 355.

Hey Matt, Mallett did look good tonight but there is another reason to smile tonight if you are a hog fan. Exactly 17 years and 355 days ago, Jack Crowe took his Hogs into Little Rock and lost to the Citadel. He was fired shortly after never getting to play much less win an SEC game. Today, he finally gets that victory by upsetting Nutt's Rebels. Do the words "pig in slop" mean anything to you.
