Can Notre Dame continue to be a College Football powerhouse with their tough academic standards?
I say no. They need the Stanford model and forget about national championships. There's nothing wrong with that. With the cheating scandal that was revealed this week and four players suspended, their hopes for the new playoff system are done. In today's environment, you can't sustain both academic integrity and football prowess.
I disagree if a student understands there is a certain academic expectations to meet than it makes for better recruits, quality players, better individuals by sticking to academic integrity. More to life during and after football. I think schools such as Notre Same can still contend as powerhouses.
Are ND academic standards higher than Stanford? I really doubt it. Stanford has great success in football. The academics excuse by ND is a crutch they have long used and will continue to use. Even Duke has success now. ND is a victim of their own success in that they have a sense of entitlement based on the past. You have to work for what you get in college football. Somewhere along the way, ND lost sight of that fact. I really thought Coach Kelly was the answer for them. He is a solid coach. But, it appears more and more, he might be in over his head.
