Fans of the winning impaired ND football team continue to show up to support their underachieving, directionless troops on home Saturdays.
But now, the students are beginning to wonder why:
But that's not what caught me off guard. For years, it's been a Notre Dame tradition for the football team to salute the student body after every home game. You can find a picture anywhere of golden helmets raised in thanks to the student body - win or lose. And this year especially, Coach Weis has really emphasized the relationship between the team and the students.If the relationship is so good, and the team appreciates the fans so much, why didn't they show their appreciation after the game Saturday? What the students got instead was a bunch of dejected football players, hanging their heads and looking at the ground, stumbling into the tunnel and the locker room after ND's alma mater was played.
While the physical beatings absorbed by ND's 'football' squad have been visible each Saturday, now we see the culmination of those beatings manifest in a clear psychological manner.
Let it be known:
We have reached the point at which ND football traditions no longer have meaning to the ND 'football' team.
Go Duke. (ouch. that hurt to say)
