dozens of other schools with decent-to-good football programs across the country.

Where we fall short is in battling the ten or so programs that are absolute ass-kickers -- Alabama, OSU, USC, FSU, Clemson, etc. If we were willing to simply consider ND's fortunes vis-a-vis decent-to-good programs then I think our infrastructure, our commitment of funds, our existing personnel, and our results would all be acceptable. But if we're going to say that we should be battling those top programs on the field year in and year out (instead of having the type of rise-and-fall run that Kelly has had) then we have to acknowledge that they have a number of advantages we can't replicate (location/weather). Or in some cases refuse to replicate (coursework). Or in other cases are trying to replicate but really are not there yet (college town atmosphere).
