As somebody else in this thread has already alluded, UConn's seven national championships dwarf our single national championship.
I strongly suspect that Auriemma has a larger recruiting budget, but he could probably get away with a smaller one. Much like the case many, many years ago with Notre Dame football, the player doesn't pick the school, the school picks the player.
Notre Dame has made great strides on the court and has improved in recruiting. Take a look at how many times Notre Dame made the Big East tournament semifinals between 2002 and 2009, and also check out how many all-conference and all-tournament players Notre Dame had during that stretch. It's pretty sobering.
Hopefully, Notre Dame will better leverage its awesome run over the past four years than it did its 2001 national championship. There is every indication that Notre Dame is doing so, but anybody who didn't think UConn had more talent and more depth than Notre Dame last night was watching a different game.
To my eye, this group of players (including those who graduated last year) and this coaching staff got as much as humanly possible out of their considerable talent.
