I was under the impression that Fr. Ted... by GeronimoRumplestiltskin

...reversed course on de-emphasis. Perhaps by 1958 and certainly by 1963, I believe it had become obvious to him that de-emphasis had done little for Notre Dame financially or spiritually, and/or he came to the realization that first-rate academics and first-rate football could co-exist on the same campus with the right leadership. That Monk decided to resurrect Hesburgh's error of de-emphasis (and, really, in first forcing out Lou's excellent recruiting director in 1990 and finally Lou in 1996, that's exactly what he did) still astonishes me.
