They have a top 5 recruiting class on the way, and enough maybes that Lemming (who has them 3 right now behind Texas and Georgia) states they could end up number 1.
Not to mention that 30 million watched the ND-USC game and NBC gave ND that free recruiting tour of the new complex. Think of all the HS kids who saw that (not to mention getting to play for Weis, he of NE Patroits Super Bowls fame - in short, HS kids are gonna wanna jump on that bandwagon)
The future is bright for ND - they aren't there yet, but, again, they are better than 25th in these stupid computer polls and better than 16th in the BCS poll.
