It really is amazing how you comprehend things. This is similar to how you translate ND FOOTBALL being irrelevant on a national level over the last two decades as being that ND is irrelevant.
No one is saying they should act in our interest. They should be forced to go all in or be on there way because the current situation is not working for the BE. And no one is blaming them. Could they have helped the conference? Absolutely! Will they? Given their desire to remain independant and in control of the revenue from football, probably not. So what do we have to lose by giving them an ultimatum? Nothing. That's not a fantasy that is the reality of the situation and it's about time someone with any kind of weight in the conference has said as much. It won't come from any president or the Commissioner because they have to put on the PC BS in hopes of swaying them to commit. A coach with Geno's stature can get away with it.
Yes, ND football is irrelevant, that's why no BCS conference would take their sorry program, especially the Big East. You recognize they could save the big east, but call their football program irrelevant. You're killing me, that's just too funny!!!
Please don't question my comprehension, worry about your own. You actually wrote "nobody is saying ND should act in our interest" but that is exactly the point Geno is making when he said they should join for football, and then worry about their self interest.
If you want to be mad at somebody, be mad at the 8 football school for not splitting away from ND; because kicking them out of the conference was never a realistic outcome for anyone living in the real world.
