The 85 scholarship limit has really leveled the college football landscape unless you do what the SEC teams do with oversigning, etc. ND will never allow that but there has to be a coach out there somewhere that can make the ND system work. Kelly could do it himself if he just hired a quality OC and abandoned some of his QB centric approach.
