I thought they achieved irrelevancy in the first quarter of the BCS championship game.

Notre Dame thought it had relevancy last year, even made sure to mention it on national TV, but after the Alabama game, it was discovered to be a lie.

TheGreatGazoo: I wonder which NBC exec is a Notre Dame grad?

The guy who runs NBC sports. And his kids. I think. Ebersol?

And to the SEC people bragging: The SEC isn't college football, its minor league NFL. Be proud. You don't play college football. Alabama, LSU,Georgia,etc.. are basically minor league NFL teams. Saban has said as much. If the NCAA wasn't a passle of morons and impotent putzes, there'd be a level playing field. Until then, the SEC gets to run semi-pro teams.

NBC makes money off it and puts forward a good product.  The only reason people are annoyed is because ESPN spends an inordinate amount of time TELLING THEM they should be annoyed and bashing the players who play for free at Notre Dame.  The TV has controls, folks.  One is to turn it to another station, the other turns it off.  You don't like ND? use one of them.

What subby fails to understand is that Notre Dame *ALWAYS* has relevancy because every year they are a pre-written cinderella story. Sports broadcasting hasn't been about providing game viewership to people for 20 years. It has been about providing human-interest stories that have no relevancy whatsoever to the game at hand.

Struck out? It's because the player is dealing with repressed child abuse off-the-field.
Missed free throws? Clearly the strain of a divorce is getting to the player.
No tackles this week? Must be the sex controversy at his old college team getting to him.

Sports broadcasting was the original Reality TV show.

wejash: The SEC looks forward to handing them their shiny helmet on a stick again then.

It's nice when an entire conference peaks before their 24th birthday.

It's all right, it's ok, you'll work for us someday!

Hey, if they're still making money from it, why the hell not?
