Pretty sure Hayes admired ND...

"Kritter" (who, BTW, is Alex Welch's uncle) was down to choosing between Ohio State, Kentucky and ND.
He decided against Ohio State and called Hayes to tell him so.
Hayes wished him good luck and asked which schools he was still considering.
Heimkreiter replied Notre Dame and Kentucky (who did have a good team then).
Hayes after a bit of an incredulous silence then said "Well, go to Notre Dame, son!"
There is no doubt he admired ND.
