Well, this past week was probably the height of the summer doldrums. With players now back on campus, news and discussion should pick up leading into fall camp. Luckily, Lou provided us with a series of articles which generated a decent amount of discussion. I thought there were a couple of standout posts from this series.
I really enjoyed WEAREND76's reply on the Part I (coaching) of the ND Vital Signs series. It was a very well researched and articulated point in what is probably the second biggest debate amongst ND fans. Speaking of debate, no topic generates more passion than the QB race, which happened to be the focus of Lou's second article in the ND Vital Signs series. I appreciated 19BlueAndGold85's perspective in this thread.
Not specifically football related, however very relevant to ND football (IMO), was the thread started by merlin08. I think it's easy for us to forget that these are kids sometimes, and I think fans sometimes cross the line in their interactions with players (not all the time, but it definitely happens). Sometimes we don't realize that we can cause more harm than good for our teams and players.
However, for me, the clear POTW was hemy. His responses to each of the ND Vital Signs series were simply sublime. His perspective was well established and frankly refreshing to read. So, congrats to hemy: a well deserved POTW.
POTW 6.4.2012 - 6.10.2012 & 3.4.2013 - 3.10.2013
Very well deserved. Good pick and conrats Hemy. How'd you get so smart?

Good job hemy. Way to type. Reading the OP, I was really hoping Merlin would have won. He wants to win as bad as Kermit wants to eat frog legs. Congrats again hemy.

Thank you all. I really appreciate it, especially since there are so many people who
from week to week deserve it. The posts on here are really outstanding.
Question--do the rules permit more than one poster as POTW? Can we
have co-winners? Reason--look at Tsulliv08's post--I agree with the comment
that WEAREND76, 19BlueAndGold85 and merlin08 are equally deserving.
I got nothing on you my friend. The honor is yours and well deserved. Your responses to Lous' Vital Signs Series were a pleasure to read.
Hemy, check your inbox I'll break down what we old timers had in mind for this award.
Gottcha! Will do my best!!
