Yeah, that was a direct shot at NDN.

Keith wasn't shooting an arrow at the fan-base at large, just the vocal section of fans that can't take any joy in the sport at all anymore... which is NDN.

And even if it's not just NDN, I still agree with him... why be a diehard ND fan if you aren't going to enjoy anything about it? That's what he was saying.

And he also wasn't saying that ND will never be great again in a literal sense. He's saying that it won't be the ND of old, where ND runs college football as the king of the mountain just by lining up a fullback and running the damn ball. But for some reason, there is a group of fans that think ND should and can still be the emperor of CFB just because they are ND, and they only need to run the right offense and hire the right coach to dominate everybody on a yearly basis, which is foolish. And that group with the unrealistic, take-no-joy attitude then takes it out on everyone: reporters, other fans, players, coaches, AD's, etc. And Keith dealt directly with that miserable group.

He was a member of our community for a while, and seemed to me like a good fit as one of our own. So good luck Keith, thanks for being a reasonable voice for eight years, and bless you for putting NDN on blast. Those guys will be in an uproar for a while, and they deserve it.

I had no problem with the article. Although I get a little depressed whenever you hear people much closer to the program than us, reiterate that ND will never be ND again, even if we know it's true.

Not sure, but I'm guessing he wanted to jump ship before more people started to realize he wasn't joking when he labeled himself as Keith Arnold.

These type of "mic drop" responses, especially from professionals, are both unprofessional and cowardly. It boggles my mind how our own fanbase seems to be eating it up.

As far as I'm concerned. His article was the equivalent of him telling me he hated writing for Notre Dame, he thinks we will never be good again and that he personally thinks I'm a dickhead. That's not exactly a message I'm going to applaud him for.

"I’ll never understand that. How people who have all the enthusiasm in the world for Notre Dame football have gotten it so twisted that they’ve forgotten that this is supposed to be fun.

It’s sports.

I won’t miss this part. The hard-liners who hold kids and coaches to a standard so far outside the one that they have for themselves, or the ones who fail to understand that every Saturday one team leaves a winner and the other a loser—and sometimes that loser wears blue and gold.
I am one who does believe we can be good again and have a shot at a NC. Our path is harder than most schools, but it's still within reach.
