In reply to: Name the top suspects in bringing ND football down.  posted by mkovac

Success under Holtz -> shamed by success -> corporate money era begins -> NBC contract -> scholarship limitations -> ND abandons traditional athletic director role for corporate stewards -> rise of ESPN influence -> college football parity -> BCS bowl model -> most corrupt era of CFB we have seen yet -> now we are in an era of concentrated power as exhibited by the playoff committee and conference commissioner rainmaker/rock stars.

In all this ND has not made much adaptation, but IMO trying to stick to their model too tightly.

I dont see the willingness to win as much as the other schools did when they were down for a few years.

Square peg to round hole.
