(ED. NOTE: We don’t write these ourselves! We aren’t insane! This is part of a recurring series in which we compile actual posts from NDNation’s flagship forum, Rock’s House, into a semi-coherent narrative. Original post and explanation is here. We do this every week. Thank you for not yelling at us on Twitter anymore.)
Is anybody Happy? Not really. I’m bored to tears with the rinse wash and repeat cycle of this program. Wolverine jizz running down our legs. Kelly beats patsies…Hooray. There is nothing about this season that anyone will look back fondly on. The voters can see ND is a MAC team in disguise.
I want to win so bad, my wife cannot be in the same room with me. That said, this year is fool’s gold. I actually turned it off and switched to the VT-Pitt game for a while. I feel as though every time Brian Kelly leads the team out of the tunnel since ’16 it is a direct insult to many that made the program great. I feel an even larger degree of anger every time Jack Swarbrick speaks. I loathe the man.
BC is like a white boxer. They try hard and badly want to win, but then the black boxer beats him into the hospital. The Eagles touchdown drive was a methodical 16-play drive featuring 13 rushes, giving them the lead. For the first time in my life I was briefly jealous of Boston College. It’s weird. We put up 40 points on BC, yet our running game was awful. I don’t even know what to think about that. Statistics don’t lie. Because they don’t say anything.
I for one don’t understand it — Kyle Hamilton, why are you here? I think its time to realize that it’s over. It’s clear that the people in charge at ND have no interest in ND having an elite football team. You may want ND to win championships. I seriously doubt that anyone at ND truly wants that. Jenkins, Swarbrick and Kelly have the Boston College mentality.
It doesn’t feel as good as it should. Such a strange, disappointing and weird season. 10-2 likely, should be 11-2 given a Camping Bowl destination, yet as hollow as it gets. “Camping World Bowl,” that pretty much sums up your whole sorry career, Brian. Pardon me for not drinking deep from the bucket of warm spit flavored Kool-Aid and calling it wine.
Kelly is a 3-4 loss/year coach. he lacks character, loyalty, trust, honesty, brains. He’s a turncoat insufferable prick. Never has an ND coach who has been given so much done so little. kelly is an untalented bully. He’s a simple minded ballistic mercenary. I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard top recruits or NFL players state, “I wouldn’t play for that a**hole”. Holtz lost to four eventual national champions, something Kelly has done twice. He is such a pitiful representation of ND.
Kelly asked Swarbrick to give the schedule a stool softener. We added tomato cans to placate Kelly. And to boot, we joined the ACC, which has had the a net effect of blowing mud all over our slate most of the ACC opponents chow ass. They will never generate any interest as opponents. It will bring our football program into certain irrelevancy. A circular stone, hung around the neck of Notre Dame Football, dragging it down from Tier 1 status: also known as Brian Kelly.
he’s an embarrassment on a personal level and would be so even if he had never lost a game. And that’s on top of the on-the-field events, and the off-the-field personality items (see, e.g., smoke machine, turf, press conferences) that are infuriating without being terminable by themselves. If he regresses to 8 win seasons with Bowling Green, New Mexico, and Boston College on the schedule he should be shot. Do it now. Spare us the waiting on death row without cause.
