Good points, and fair enough, Bleeds.
I would point out, however, that Florida recently won multiple national championships in football under Meyer and under Donovan in basketball. The school won both in the same year in 2006, so it is possible to be a football school and basketball school. The obvious counter that some will raise here is that Florida does not live or play by the same strict standards as ND--and there is some truth to that. But it seems to me that we have already done the hard part---found a way to compete with best and play for National championships in a sport where there are 85 players who must meet our high bar. It would seem much easier to reach that same bar where you have a total of 12, and only bring in 3 or 4 players a year.
