Does Notre Dame Really Only Employ Three People for Athletic Academic Support?

Bruce Feldman Twitter Avatar

This evening, I saw what I thought was a very strange factoid pop up in my timeline. Bruce Feldman had claimed that Notre Dame only had three people on an academic support staff for its student-athletes: https://twitter.com/BryanDFischer/status/504046632015364096 This didn't make any sense to me at all. For long time readers of this site, you are likely aware that I was a student manager while at Notre Dame.

Life as a Notre Dame fan is often like riding a roller coaster at the local amusement park. The years are filled with highs and lows and varying types of emotions. This off-season was no different from most other off-seasons.

It wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but the future … [Read more...]
