Agreed. They need to get used to being 2nd level, a la the Kansas States/Michigan States/Clemsons of the football world. Why would a blue chip recruit, who let's be honest, knows it's NFL or a degree by the skin of their teeth, choose to go to cold, stodgy South Bend? Their competition is South Beach Miami, Florida, LA, Texas, insert your warm/good weather/hip/fun city/college town here with easier academic standards, more and better social outlets and much, much hotter women. Unless you're a devout Catholic or born in Indiana, what's the point? ND and their fans have this weird, convoluted view of the program. Cowherd made a good point on ESPN radio this morning, mentioning how the AD was talking about returning to the glory days of Rockney, Parseghian and Holtz. Huh?! ND is lucky if kids these days even know the name Holtz and that's only because he's an ESPN talking head. Boy does ND need the luck of the Irish.
