Media Still Painting Positive Picture of Notre Dame

Yesterday, we brought you an account directly from a Notre Dame student publication, which complained that the Irish football team didn't bother to salute the fans for supporting them after the Air Force Academy skull drug the Irish around ND Stadium.

Today, a hometown newspaper in a traditional bastion of Irish recruitment (Chicago) attempted to paint a picture contradictory to what is coming out of South Bend itself.

While many fans leave early during blowouts, the Notre Dame student section has remained near capacity until players and students sing the alma mater in what has become a moving postgame tradition.

While we don't dispute that the students stay and support their tattered troops, we find it appalling that the SunTimes would mislead potential recruits in the Chicago area by reporting that the team is still full of pride. Particularly when a student publication clearly stated that the humbled team crawled off the field with heads held low in disgrace. Without bothering to engage in the traditional salute after Air Force out schemed and out athlete-ed them.

''My appreciation and my respect for the student body has grown by leaps and bounds this year,'' senior tight end John Carlson said. ''Not that I ever didn't have respect for them -- it's just that we haven't put a product on the field that we've been proud of, and the fact that they have stayed and supported us through it all really means a lot.''

Yea. Right. That's why the team couldn't be bothered to raise their Golden Helmets to thank the fans.


Two days 'til this season's apocalypse.

come on. they got their ass kicked by AF, can you blame them for running off the field to go and hide?

and surely Weis had a buffet table to raid, hence his hasty retreat

NOIS,

I know it feels good, but don't break your foot kicking a dead horse.

Censored,

Not all idiots drool. Take you, for instance.

Not to mention that in a weekly news conference, Weis made reference to the very fact that he loved the student section for sticking around and making sure that the team showed the proper respect after every home game win or lose. Do as I say not as I do I guess. That guy is a total disaster. And as a Husky fan, could you please find a way to get Ty back to Notre Dame? Just not in exchange for Weis. Thanks.

"a hometown newspaper"

Sir, this is what I have been missing for awhile on NOISb - your comedic GENIUS. Sun Times = NEWSpaper. Hilarious, sir. Thank you.

Fixed. Too bad his momma wasn't. Please spay and neuter your pets.

You know how it is Malcolm. Or maybe not. I was brought up a Husky fan, went to school there and I never though it would be like this. These are tough days, but what can you do? It's not like all of a sudden I can become another team's fan. I'm sure there's other losers out there that do it, but not me. Stubborn or stupid (or both)--you decide.
