How. They have sold out every game since Thanksgiving 1974 against Air Force( a game that I was at) and the reason they sold more trinkets was the 12-0 and being in the championship game not the media's interest in an emotional story. That interest did not win one game just gave Brent something to talk about. An 8-5 season and this story does not exist.
Just one example...

POTW 1/31/11 - 2/6/11
Folks, I get it, the last two weeks haven't been the greatest in the history of ND, but we've got to come together. Look at what we've reduced ourselves to. C'mon, we've got to be better than this. You want to take down Forde, Mandel, Reilly, so be it, but we've got to trust our guys to give us the straight dope, whether you agree with it or not; besides, i'm not giving them good $$$ to blow smoke and defend the school when it's in the wrong. I don't necessarily agree with Dan's assessment of the situation, btw, but I don't begrudge him for pointing out that "hiring an investigative firm" may have had some thinking a bit more sophistication and depth were involved. As the ND rep said, they were focused on ND; anything outside of extricating the school from the conversation was gravy. I'm cool with that as it got them what they wanted.
For what it's worth, just because you think you've got it figured out doesn't settle the matter. There are still things that need to be sorted out. Teo fatigue? Where was that fatigue when Dan was writing positive things about Te'o and ND? It's important to maintain perspective. As I said with respect to JC, folks are so close to this situation that every small blip registers as a massive earthquake.
As I said, this is big deal, but for as much as you don't like it, imagine how it must feel for the folks actually involved. Why dont we just skip the Te'o threads and focus on the other threads. But at least allow those of us who are still following it to do so w/o cracking the mods for posting things that don't fit your narrative.
