Okay. The tip was the 22 years of futility.

Duke is in their 6th year of playing softball. Last year Duke, in their 5th season of fielding a team, won a Regional and advanced to a Super Regional.

Notre Dame has never won a Regional under a head coach that has been at Notre Dame 22 years.

So much for striving for excellence in all things. Whatever Notre Dame is doing with the softball program is not working and it needs to be overhauled. Softball players are by and large in Notre Dame's demographic wheelhouse but it seems nobody in the athletic administration gives a damn about excellence in the softball program.
