On a little more serious note: Take a second to think about how difficult it is for ND to get quality athletes at those very important walk on positions? With the NCAA taking the scholarships down to 85 and then limiting the total amount of walk ons due to Title 9, and combine that with the ridiculous cost of attending ND and it is obviously very difficult for Notre Dame to field a strong field of much needed walk ons.
We all remember the famous stories of the Nebraska walk on program and what they meant to the program. Their advantage was being a state school so every decent kid in the midwest wanted to be part of that machine, unlimited amount of walk ons, and the relatively low cost of state education.
You absolutely need quality players NOT on scholarship to build the necessary depth to have elite Division I practices. As we have all seen, the more competitive the practice level rises to the better result on Saturdays. And oh ya, the need to have $250k to 'earn' the right to be there. Tough deal for ND.
