Just CEO speak from Jeff Long to deter the media from arriving at conclusions. Long will keep this coaching search highly confidential as he did for the Mike Anderson hiring. And of course he's been in contact with the representation of potential candidates.

Relevance is determined by production and you know it. I bet most ND fans would trade every bit of extra media coverage for a BCS bowl win.

Actually, most fans want to see their teams consistently compete for championships. Besides, ESPN/SEC deal gives us nearly what NBC gives ND as far as being on TV. And don't you think ND fans would trade all this money, which doesn't sniff the pockets of the actual fans, for champioships? The old guard of ND is killing the football program...in production, not some old white man's pockets who lives in the past.
What do you mean no substance? The substance is what every non-Notre Dame fan or Catholic thinks of Notre Dame. That they don't deserve the attention they get. This myth that people daydream about hating Notre Dame is just that, a myth. Notre Dame is not the New York Yankees. The Yankees actually continue to win and truly are embroiled in a love/hate relationship with America. Who cares if Notre Dame games are on every weekend? ND university leadership is killing their football program by parlaying the ND "brand" while playing an impossible schedule.
A non-SEC team winning the national title won't necessarily mean the end of SEC dominance of college football. It will still likely have the most teams in the top 25 at the end of the year, highest attendance figures, most lucrative TV deals and merchandising, best head-to-head bowl wins, and most draft picks at the end of the year. Again. SEC dominance is here to stay due to population demographics steadily moving in the South's favor in addition to unmatched support for college football. Who cares if Southern Cal wins this year? Let's take a look in ten years at how many more championships the SEC will have. I bet it will be at least 50%. As far as Notre Dame? I don't know one person in the South that cares about Notre Dame much less enough to hate them. They are simply a program that hasn't been elite for 20 years now. And it's likely not to stop anytime soon due to their suicidal scheduling (all to serve it's "brand"), and inability to get academically borderline kids into school. The SEC this year will be, and continue to be for a long time, the most dominant conference in America. Regardless of what single program outside the SEC does on a given year.
I guess we're still assuming Arkansas will ever recruit like the big boys of the country. Even if they were 2-3 games total from playing for the NC the past two years.
