They weren't as consistently good in that era

as ND has been in lacrosse. This year's seeding (7) was ND's lowest since 2010, when ND was unseeded but made the championship game. Southern Cal never was ranked higher than 7th in a final poll when Lou Holtz was ND's coach, and the year they finished with that ranking (1988) was the only one in which they made a serious national championship run or were even in the top 10 at the end of the regular season.
