Except Michigan isn't Notre Dame. Notre Dame is the grave for all talent.
Gringo Mafia Sergeant at Arms - 5 time POTW
How many guys got drafted out of South Bend this year?
Well all time series lead over you, 3 straight, and more BCS games than you guys. Also 2 38-0 blowouts against you guys in the past 10 years.
Since when is relevance based on TV? Which is a direct result of ND's history.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
When's the last time ND won a Natty?
Good Lord the civility really disappeared quickly in this thread.
So I'm interested to know what the defense for ND is going to look like next year. Who exactly did you lose? What's the D-line going to look like without Lynch? What alignments are you're coaches planning (didn't Slaughter move to a hybrid LB/S position)?
Don't forget that Michigan taught ND how to play the game and their stadium is basically a smaller copy of the Big House.
Because the coaching they received got them drafted...
Wait are we comparing the 2 programs histories or head to head matchup? While we have more titles, all-americans, and Heisman trophy winners...sooooo. Apples for apples.
It really is.
ND has been irrelevant nationally for the past 20 years, with maybe 3-4 decent seasons. In comparison, UM has been a top 10 program during that period, with a national championship in 1997 and five BCS bowl appearances (2 wins) since 2000. When ND forced out Lou Holtz, you got rid of the only decent coach you have had in the past 30 years. And you replaced him with four incompetent boobs (three of whom you fired a fourth headed for the same fate). In comparison, UM has had three coaches during the past 30 years. One of those won a NC and was recently inducted into the CFB hall of fame and another went 11-2 and won a BCS bowl in his first season. RR is the third. Hiring RR was a mistake, but please do not equate that one mistake with the keystone cops way your football program has been managed over the past two decades.

I think the question is since when ISN'T relevance based on TV?
You said relevance. In the past 20 years, Michigan is much more relevant.
You don't think those heismans and all-americans weren't from the fact that the players played for Notre Dame?
Since wins are more important than having every game on TV.
And yet our stadium has the richest history...
Then why doesn't Michigan have every game Nationally Televised?
Because we play in a conference maybe?
Not by much...a ''shared'' title in the 90's?
Well then you have to ask how we got to be that way in the first place...
Agree- he brought it all on myself- first statement- ND's back up QB ( never heard his name before) is quicker and faster than denard!! Ok , one retarted statement I can accept but then the many more since.. go ask sparty or Ohio they would agree dudes on crack!!
