    Notre Dame -- home of future Patriots, now on both sides of the ball. :)

    Unless they get a lot better athletes on that side of the ball it isn't going to matter what scheme they play.

    About damn time - watching ND's version of the 4-3 defense was a gutwrenching proposition.

    after Lerner cans him next year.

    The 3-4 is the hot thing in football right now. Only thing it takes very specific types of players and coaches for it to be successfull.

    Nah, the amount of talent sent up the next few years will be in this order:

    1. Florida (Urban Meyer's Gators mind you)
    2. Alabama (Alabama already has some good talent, so Saban being their is just a plus.)
    3. Notre Dame (This could improve with Parcells out in Big D, but that remains to be seen.)
    4. Fresno State (I think Hill could be on the outs if he has another bad season, so I'm not counting on him being there in two years.)

    Notre Dame has very high academic standards and the final say is with a student committee to keep everything on the up and up. They have a difficult time recruiting athletes who are too lazy to learn and just want to play football. So the "student athletes" go to" Miami, Tennessee, Ohio State, FSU, Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, Texas .........and the list goes on.
