I always hear people complain about ND’s tv deal as a reason they despise them. As an army brat I always enjoyed that their game was on tv every week. I could watch them every Saturday regardless of where I lived and it’s a big reason I become a football fan. It didn’t hurt that that they had consistently excellent teams then(late 80s/early 90s) but I wouldn’t have been as in to it if I was watching different players every week.I refuse to watch ND
At this point, I don’t watch them unless they have an interesting matchup but I’m guessing there are lots of little army brats excited to watch their favorite team even though they live in BFE.
