That wrestling tradition is in about Notre Dame football position right now...how do you advise we fix it?
It's silly to change barbs about which sport we want a championship in...I want us to win one in all of them...Heck in football we are much closer than in wrestling at this point in time...World love for us to get back in the hunt in wrestling like we are in football.
Ehhh participation on the youth level is through the roof and the advancement of the women's sport is only going to help. It's about 5-6 on the NCAA popularity list right now. Think we're about to see a growth period with programs adding women's programs and then reintroducing long lost men's programs as part of that.
Rankings for me
1) National Championship in football or basketball
2) Conference Champs/ Football or Basketball Final 4
3) 10 wins or more in football, Top 3 conference finish in basketball (Other words, really good seasons)
4) National Championships in other sports
I have really enjoyed following the softball team the last couple years in the playoffs. And when wrestling is in the mix, I typically follow it as well. But it's not something I schedule my evening/day around like I would for a big football/basketball game.
