An idea that could drastically help recruiting


NicePost

Alright, most of the venting is over and it's time to lick our wounds and think on how to improve this thing. I have an idea, and before you laugh at it, hear me out.

 

ND cannot recruit better weather, but it could recruit better looking women. I know that brains and looks are a rare combination, hence the issue with ND girls. Other recruiters have no doubt pointed out the weather at South Bend and the pasty white girls who mostly feel the need to insulate themselves from the cold in South Bend by adding on considerable body weight instead of a more temporary fix such as a coat.

Here's my logic: ND is a Catholic institution, so helping the downtrodden is a goal for the university. Is there a better example of a downtrodden class than beautiful women with limited intelligence? Blondes, for example, get no respect and are routinely made fun-of. Beautiful women as a whole are not respected for their intellect (when that occurs), soooo . . . the university could start recruiting such women just like they go after other minority groups. ND wants diversity don't they? How can a university be diverse without beautiful women??? That's classism isn't it? If ND would give beautiful women the same consideration that they do a legacy, an athlete, a child of a large contributor (i.e. Regis), or a minority group, then they truly would have a more diverse campus and we would have one less issue in recruiting. Such women would make the gray October skies considerably brighter during the harsh winter months. I think some alumni (I hope you're reading this) should petition the university to start asking that a photo be attached to all applications, and/or their regional recruiters start specifically going after babes in their respective states, under the interests of diversity, of course. It's only fair to a downtrodden class and it sure as hell would help our situation as well. I know you're likely amazed at the logic, but it's a gift I've always had.

LOL, that was classic. Quick, related story. When my mom was in graduate school at ND in the late 70's they wanted to make the campus a "dry" campus. The male students were in an uproar. They hung a huge sign out of one of the dorms that said "You expect us to date these women sober?" I still get a kick out of it. My mom is a sort of womens lib type broad, and SHE found it funny. ND women have been more smart than pretty for YEARS. LOL[/b]

Is it really that bad there? :lol: Has anyone seen The Program?...You know the first time that Omar Epps visits and there is a big crowd of people there to welcome, but then when he comes back there's no on there? Wel that's what we need to do with the girls...import from some other schools for the big visit weekends and then after they commit who cares what they think about the girls :lol:

This is the most rediculous thing I've read since I've been on DD. No offense, I normally love your posts NICEPOST. But this is not only against EVERYTHING that ND stands for, but it is a totally irrational reflection on the football program. Look, I hope that some here don't forget that ND is a University with a football program instead of a football program with a University. DD is a great place because it is full of thoughtful people that enjoy talking about FOOTBALL and the process of recruiting people to this great ACADEMIC institution. To read something like this is nothing but silly "filler". NICEPOST...from what I can tell, you are full of great contributions to this site. But this is absolutely rediculous. Are you interested in football players or ND men? Because Miami is full of football players.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING :shock: :shock: :shock:

Apparently, most who read this got it. For those on the "retentive" side, let me expound. My original post was a lesson in pure sarcastic expression, from beginning to end. A fact that I had believed would be made clear by the very nature of its ridiculous concept. For anyone to take this "idea" as a legitimate push for ND to recruit women simply based on their looks (the inference being that they would be "concubines" for the football players) is beyond my understanding. Yet, you were terribly offended (you must be a riot at a party). You were, however, right when you called the post "silly filler", for that is exactly what was intended. I'm sorry you couldn't recognize it for what you had apparently observed it to be.

domeanddomer, great post, this is notre dame not fsu or some other place you are 100% correct. go irish :D

 

Disappointed in you. You too Sir John, as I know you have read my many earlier posts that are often wrapped in such tongue-in-cheek comments. It's just stupefying how anyone could have taken this idea seriously, especially in light of the posts that followed immediately afterwards by DD'ers such as KTM and ctsubalum who clearly got it and reacted accordingly. This should have been the first clue to you that this wasn't serious. Unreal. :? :?

Nicepost, i'm with you bud. I thought it was funny and TOTALLY tongue in cheek. Sometimes it is difficult for people to read sarcasm. When you are dealing with the general public, like we are here, being totally obvious isn't enough. Maybe a (sarcasm) or something to help the sarcasm detecting deficient on the board. (I did like your idea though) (I don't really think it's a viable option-just in case)
