Don't buy this concept

firstly, we should beware explanations that flatter ourselves

secondly, schools where guys have to worry about class like Stanford, Navy, Northwestern, etc., or the Ivies for that matter, don't experience huge drop-offs like this. I'm not sympathetic to the idea that all elite academic schools besides us are living some type of nefarious lie when it comes to football

thirdly, this isn't even a consistent trend among ND teams. It only happens when we enter the late-season stages with something to lose.
