Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: Paraphrasing: "You know, we try to recruit players here to Notre Dame that are good athletes but also people with good character who will represent the University well. Sometimes however it is possible to misjudge a person's character and they turn out to not be what you thought. It's unfortunate but it happens, I mean, look at Christ, he had twelve recruits and even one of them went wrong."

-Lou Holtz
