<quoted text>Any kids that leave ND hurt. Not having Abraham hurts on the recruiting trail. That guy busted his butt getting athletes to go to ND and it benefitted all 3 boys teams.
This is exactly what you'll come across at ND, parents obsessed with their children's future fabled sports careers. It does not matter how well this ignorant scum you speak of recruited, you live in a shit town and the schools population is plummeting. Div 1 is a dream, Div 3 is a possibility, and your children going to HCCC is the reality. God forbid ND actually offered a thriving academic program instead. The sports teams are completely monotonous, ND is not large enough of a school...face facts morons

Your wrong about the only kids leaving for sure are the coaches kids. Yes abraham and wilcox are good as gone. Jones is already enrolled at Proctor. Perez has been gone for a month. Muha will be back at HP for track. Gordon family has moved so hes gone. Thats 6 kids already ! Thats 40 thousand of tuition and the school year hasn't ended. Firing coach Abraham is gonna turn out to be a 100,000 error

The handwriting is on the wall, get out of ND and take your athlete to a stable school that isn't ran by an absurd Nun and elite daddy's. The older kids may as well stay and finish it out.

You may be right, but those affected by the unethical Principal and school board are still hurting by all this

A majority of comments and posts on this thread is incorrect. Many of the people who are bashed on this site are stand up people. I don't know all of the people mentioned on here, but I do know one; and all I can say is that he is a better man than any of you can ever aspire to be. You are all cowardly and should be ashamed of yourselves. This is high school football and whoever takes this coaching positioned will be nothing but slandered by these ridiculous remarks and accusations.
My suggestion for the majority who felt the need to throw jabs at any person mentioned in here is to keep your opinions to yourselves and find a more suitable way to spend your time. Instead of spending time on here thinking of ways to make others worse than yourselves, spend time with your families and figure out a way to better yourself.

Believe a lot of these posts about kids that are leaving are correct. As far as coaching, the candidates listed in these threads aren't very good football coaches. I guess we have been spoiled for the past years. Time will tell.

I pray that the school board finds better candidates than the Principal Anna Mae did. Rosetti hire would work for a year if we are lucky and all down hill after that.

I'm under the assumption that Former ND parent and ND parent are the same person using two different names? It also seems that this person knows quite a few personal details about the others on the coaching staff. By process of elimination it can only be assumed that this would be a former coach or another on the "staff"
Instead of throwing digs at others, isn't it much more noble to walk away with your head held high and save face?

How would ND bring back the defensive coaches to run the team. Nd's defense was horrible for all years under steve rosati. I cant imagine what he would do to the offense. Nd needs to find a new coach

Who would want to coach football there?? Seriously. You basically have to beg borrow or steal to get kids to go there. Economy is shitty, Catholic Church is going to shit, they really pissed people off when they let BA go.
ND is going nowhere fast!

Why would anyone take advice from, or, even lend credence to, "Disgusted"?
The opinions proffered by her, and assumptions she has made are ludicrous. She is obviously the wife of one of the 'elite' parents who have set ND on its path of destruction.
The school with the storied history now, has nothing remaining but that.

I am a ND grad and alum. You are correct! The school has gone down hill. It has been managed terribly since the brothers left. It doesn't offer anymore than the public school system, in terms of education or sports. The best thing to do is close the doors. If not, they will be closed later on.

Well "Disgusted", in a small school like ND, it's easy to know who people are who work there. We have had two players in the Abraham football program and it's not too hard to get to know who the good coaches are and who the poor coaches are. Especially the ones who like to hear themselves talk. We can only assume you are Mr or Mrs Rosetti

I have watched over the years the demise of ND. It's a sad shame to have watched it go down hill. I am not saying there was no issues in 1987' , however the scope/magnitude of the current administration handling of recent events is downright deplorable.. These actions will definitely put ND under. A Couple more years and ND will close it doors. I at least saw the writing on the wall years ago and did not put my children through this school system. The only difference between ND and other schools is the money.... ND brings nothing to the table.

I am not. My attention was caught mainly when a small school within our community was written about on a national blog months ago. Notre Dame is the only standing catholic school in this area and it's a shame that anyone and everyone's name involved is slanderd. I may not have all of the facts, but I do know a lot of the information in here is misleading. It is becoming blatantly obvious the school needs help and probably a change in administration. The suspension of the head coach did nothing but draw negative attention to the school and the program. And because the administration failed to back up one of their own, they have done nothing but seal their own fate. The worst part of all is the kids and whomever steps in are the ones who will suffer.
