After every "bad" loss (had we lost to Louisville by 2 in regulation, I doubt anyone would have called it such), you get moronic posts like this by people who come out of the woodwork to trash the program after ignoring every successful game. They don't know basketball, don't have any understanding of the ups and downs of the college game, and have little to no respect for the differences between the program in its current state compared to where it was in the 90s.
It happens on every message board just like those for other schools. One of the nice things about running a basketball-only blog is that I get a lot of constructive comments with very little emoting. Props to those of you who have contributed to this.
In fairness, there are some good places out there for ND basketball discussion. For the most part NDNation's board does a good job, though there is some overreacting after games (both wins and losses). I don't post there, but do read the board from time to time. If you can sift through the trash, there is some very good information. A good post by one of the most respected members headlines the board as an indication for what NDNation tries to accomplish.
It's not always great, and it's frequently very frustrating, but it's part of being the second most respected sport at a school.
