I can't find the article off-hand, but he apparently revised the entire program on both sides of the spectrum from blowing away recruits to blowing away grizzled NFL scouts coming to junior/senior day combines. Alabama was in the doldrums between Stallings until Saban, has marginal regional recruiting advantages compared to Southern Cal, LSU, UGA, etc, but he has made them a machine, and I think ND could easily do the same across all sports with the right mindset
