starts with football prowess, not stadium aesthetics. Doubt any Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan or Ohio State fan would lose sleep over any "upgrades" done to their stadiums.
Get football where it needs to be. ND would deservedly be considered special again and traditions will continue to reverberate no matter what's done to ND Stadium, but ONLY if we started kicking ass nationally again, year over year. That's the only tradition that matters to me.
History and tradition dissipates and ultimately disappears when the meaning of what made ND great - national championships and Heisman Trophy winners - no longer is possible.
