    That sort of goes along with my point.

    Quick question, how do Notre Dame fans rank your ex-coaches? Rockne is more famous, but is he considered higher on the list than Leahy? I'm guessing it would go something like...
    Rockne/Leahy
    Parseghian
    Holtz
    Devine

    i thought the ncaa said kim dunbar was not a booster, which is why her embezzling from her boss and giving the money to players (and having babies with them) was not an ncaa violation.

    I believe it was simply academic arrogance, much like the Big Ten's stance which only allowed its champion to go to the Rose Bowl and even then they did not allow teams to play in consecutive bowl games. I'm not sure when they ended that practice.

    Bowl games were seen as excessive, and taking away from the school's academic mission.

    Forde could have save us a lot of time by stating just one thing: Sela Ward or Regis Philbin. Which means we win.

    Pat Forde's comparison chart on UA/ND...

    Comparing the academics of a large state university to a smallish private school who can be very selective is negligent journalism. Also comparing salaries would mean you would have to adjust for geography. I'd take $50 grand in Mobile over $100 in Manhattan. I have several Notre Dame grads working for me. I wouldn't trade places with them.

    Does everyone realize that we've let one ND poster looking for a fight to derail the entire discussion to quibbles about academics on the day of the BCSCG? Let's get back to football...
