Hey, when I was a teenager picking a college because of a cute basketball coach was perfectly logical. Of course, I also applied at Pepperdine cause it was close to the beach in Mailbu--the girl who can't swim, dislikes sand in weird bodily places and who blisters in the sun.
BTW: GO VOLS!
I grew up in South Bend and lived there my whole life until I married. We moved back for a few years after my husband retired from the Navy and when we lived up there, he had a job where he traveled a lot. One evening I went to pick him up at the SBRegional airport. Lord, have mercy, Dickie V had come in on a plane for something to do with his dd (who went to ND) and he was holding court like some king right in the middle of the concourse. He is so grating, isn't he, worse than Howard Cosell used to me. I love Digger too and think he was the best bball coach Notre Dame ever had. He lives one block from my son's house and Jay sees him all the time. (My son lives 4 blocks from Notre Dame) My dh absolutely hates Notre Dame above all things and my sister, her husband and all her kids and their families live in and around South Bend and of course are huge ND fans. When we lived up there we used to get together for the ND football games on Saturday at my niece's house. My husband, snot that he is, programmed his computer to play the fight song of whatever school they were playing and whenever the team would make a touch down against ND he would start it up!
We were lucky we weren't banned!
