The bullshit that is Notre Dame

    No offense, NDChief, but herein lies the facts:



    CHICAGO--It was amusing to hear Paul Hornung speak of Notre Dame's "excessively demanding admissions standards" for football players (Tribune, April 1). Here's some truth for Mr. Hornung and those Irish alums who believe the school's winning percentage has dropped in inverse proportion to supposed "rising standards:"

    Recent data released by the NCAA lists Stanford and Northwestern No. 1 and No. 2 in average SAT scores for football players, which is why each plays in a Rose Bowl every 30-odd years. Rice, Duke and Vanderbilt come in at Nos. 3, 4 and 5. The Fighting Irish ranked No. 51 out of 115 Division I football programs with an average SAT score of 925, below Big Ten schools Purdue (No. 6), Indiana (No. 10), Ohio State (No. 12), Penn State (No. 21), Iowa (No. 27) and Michigan (No. 46). They are also ranked well below a Colorado team (No. 35) that has been making headlines for things other than academic achievement. Unlike the famed Four Horsemen, Irish supporters sit on mythical high horses, oblivious to the facts and unwilling to accept reality: Notre Dame has very relaxed academic standards for its football players, yet fields a team that had drifted into mediocrity.



    And yeah, probably a lot of people here knew this, but it's still so fun!

    I saw that on the O-Zone last night...but there is no link provided. After searching the Chicago Tribune site, still no luck. This is all that I could find from 1997...I know things have changed since then, but the other article is unverified for now.

    The gap has to be closer now with the upgrade in the standards at tOSU, but the O-Zone article has ND rank way too low. I did read that Tony Rice was a Prop 48 recruit...ND does make exceptions Chief but the standards are high.
     
  10. ND "did" make exceptions but they stopped ! Ask Lou ..

    Screw the Chicago Tribune charging people $$ to get into its archives. Lexis came to the rescue. Below is the article--it appears to be a write-in piece by a fan, so the factual basis of the story may not be verified. However, the specificity of the facts provided, and the fact that the Tribune published it, seem to corroborate its truth.

    HEADLINE: Other factors

    BODY:


    SCHAUMBURG--While I enjoyed Phil Rogers' article regarding a manager's Impact Factor in the Baseball Preview section (Tribune, March 29), I must point out a major flaw in the formula he devised.

    Rogers created a formula to calculate the impact managers have on the win-loss record of a team through an entire 162-game season. As all baseball fans know, weather, stadium configuration and just plain luck play major parts in determining the outcome of a game. Rogers' formula disregards these factors entirely and either gives too much credit or puts too much blame on the manager's shoulders.

    Will anyone ever devise an accurate statistic that properly measures a manager's impact? Perhaps. But for now I'll continue to measure a manager's impact by the number of games his team wins.

    Tom Williams

    Wrong fielder

    ELMHURST--Phil Rogers ranks Sammy Sosa as the top right fielder in the National League (Tribune, March 31)? Sosa's fielding skills have diminished sharply over the past few years. Sure, he still hits home runs, but a .279 batting average and an enormous number of strikeouts doesn't make a player the best.

    Running out of the dugout to do a victory lap doesn't either.

    Meanwhile, Magglio Ordonez of the White Sox isn't one of the top three right fielders in the American League? Come on, Phil.

    Dennis Moore

    Stupid is as . . .

    LISLE--While illustrating the foolishness of Mike North's April Fool's stunt, Tom Carkeek's Critic's Corner (Tribune, April 2) gave North what he and every other local sports-talk show personality crave--attention.

    Unfortunately, such notoriety for something so journalistically irresponsible reinforces the notion that Chicago sports-talk radio thrives on the lowest common denominator. Instead of being a forum for intelligent discussion among the world's greatest sports fans, sports-talk radio in this town is mostly shtick, buffoonery and rampant egos. But as long as station managers can show their advertisers ratings, the stupidity will continue.

    Brian Gandy

    What standards?

    CHICAGO--It was amusing to hear Paul Hornung speak of Notre Dame's "excessively demanding admissions standards" for football players (Tribune, April 1). Here's some truth for Mr. Hornung and those Irish alums who believe the school's winning percentage has dropped in inverse proportion to supposed "rising standards:"

    Recent data released by the NCAA lists Stanford and Northwestern No. 1 and No. 2 in average SAT scores for football players, which is why each plays in a Rose Bowl every 30-odd years. Rice, Duke and Vanderbilt come in at Nos. 3, 4 and 5. The Fighting Irish ranked No. 51 out of 115 Division I football programs with an average SAT score of 925, below Big Ten schools Purdue (No. 6), Indiana (No. 10), Ohio State (No. 12), Penn State (No. 21), Iowa (No. 27) and Michigan (No. 46). They are also ranked well below a Colorado team (No. 35) that has been making headlines for things other than academic achievement.

    Unlike the famed Four Horsemen, Irish supporters sit on mythical high horses, oblivious to the facts and unwilling to accept reality: Notre Dame has very relaxed academic standards for its football players, yet fields a team that had drifted into mediocrity.

    Sleeping giant

    LONG LAKE, Ill.--I look forward to reading Sam Smith's NBA columns, but couldn't help but be puzzled by his suggestion that the Bulls keep Eddy Curry (Tribune, March 30). In my opinion, he is why the Bulls are the most pathetic team in basketball. He's 6-foot-10 and 285 pounds, and with size like that, why is he getting at best, four rebounds a night? He's a center, Sam, not a shooting guard.

    What gave the Bulls six championships was Michael Jordan, of course, but he wouldn't have done it without Bill Cartwright, Horace Grant and Dennis Rodman. What the Bulls lack is defensive aggressiveness--opponents have no problem walking through the lane for a layup. They need an aggressive big man, not a sleeping giant.

    Tyson Chandler is inconsistent, but at least he's aggressive at times and fights for rebounds. Curry doesn't even jump, he just stands there. Let's trade Jamal Crawford and both Eddies this summer for a big man with heart, soul and disregard for his body.

    Charles Ciba

    What a hassle

    CHICAGO--Sam Smith's "Save the Bulls" plan has just the right touch of humor and irony that epitomizes Chicago sports teams. Wally Szczerbiak from the Timberwolves for Tyson Chandler and Antonio Davis? According to Sam, Szczerbiak is unhappy because the first-place Timberwolves won't put him in the starting lineup. He doesn't start because Trenton Hassel is starting . . . the Trenton Hassel who was not considered good enough by Bulls management to even make the team this year and was simply released. He was, according to GM John Paxson, beaten out by Linton Johnson, whose only hope of making a basket is to have Eddy Curry put him through it.

    So here is the problem: If Trenton Hassel was not good enough for the Bulls but starts for a first-place team, it would seem impossible that Wally Szczerbiak would even get a chance to play for the Bulls. The Bulls' talent evaluation crew would point out to Sam that there are other players such as Elton Brand, Ron Artest and Brad Miller who simply did not meet the Bulls' standards. If Sam thinks about it enough he would realize that if Szczerbiak can't beat out Hassel and Hassel couldn't beat out Johnson, then the Bulls should be trading Davis and Chandler for Kevin Garnett. That might make a difference.

    Ronald Cope

    Making a point

    EVANSTON--Carmelo Anthony's recent refusal to re-enter a game adds to the overwhelming body of evidence that Sam Smith is a loser in the NCAA-vs.-NBA debate (Tribune, March 24).

    Character and maturity, which most college coaches teach, but which pro coaches can't afford to dwell on, will always trump sheer athletic ability. Anthony's immersion in the marvelous NBA culture has, all too typically, resulted in a regression in his maturity. No sport in the world has a higher percentage of selfish, out-of-control, immature "men-children" than the NBA.

    So, Sam, enjoy the next Rasheed Wallace Fan Club meeting. Don't worry about saving seats for the rest of us though.

    Bob Best

    More than Keady

    VALPARAISO--Regarding Skip Myslenski's article on Purdue basketball and coach Gene Keady (Tribune, March 26): I used to be a season ticket-holder, drove 80 miles one way and dealt with a time change all season, every game. There is more going on than players not being focused and a coach wondering why.

    Parking got to be a hassle, especially during the remodeling of the football stadium. Parking was available at a golf course nowhere near the arena, and if you were a few minutes late the shuttle busses stopped running.

    Ticket prices went up and the quality of the product went down. Slowly we realized there were other things more interesting or pressing than Purdue basketball. No food or drink in the arena . . . our local high school allows that. To say the least the basketball environment was becoming fan unfriendly.

    It's not all about the coach or the players' lack of focus. Maybe the university has lost focus on the fan. The arena sold out too many times in a row a few years ago and everyone became complacent. Charge more and the fan will buy it. Does the coach need to move on, or are there others in the system who need to look for employment elsewhere?

    It is sad but true: The coach is the victim of the mistakes of people who never had to suit up. We shouldn't feel bad for the coach, we should encourage him to move on. Mr. Keady is the victim of those who on a day-to-day basis neglected to keep the basketball environment fresh, new and growing.
