Default The Other Side Of The Notre Dame Story

If your mind is made up and you don't want to be bothered by the facts then don't read this.

This is just one paragraph of a writers view of the happenings at Notre Dame the last three weeks.....from the NDNations.com web site
It a very interesting story that college football fans can appreciate. It covers several topics.

"In fact, both Florida and Stanford recently fired their coaches after three years and no one questioned their motives. Oklahoma replaced John Blake (a black football coach) with Bob Stoops (a white football coach) and no one cried racism. Yet the media tells you that Notre Dame has sold its soul (again) for taking the same actions. Much of the vitriol this time stems from the fact that Tyrone Willingham is almost universally respected and no one wants to see such a man fail. But it's also fueled the understandable outcry over the pathetically small number of African American coaches leading big-time programs. Credit incoming President Father Jenkins for not flinching in the face of such pressures. He recently said, "We welcome that scrutiny... we think we have it because we have high ideals for our program. We are going to keep them, and we are going to meet them."

Read the whole story

Guess you can tell that I am a Notre Dame fan.
