Before this, whenever I thought about Notre Dame, the names Lou Holtz or Joe Montana sprang to mind, maybe even Tim Brown. I never once associated Manti Te'o with anything significant to the school. Hell, I'd never even heard of him before this season.
Now, however, there is no way you can seperate Manti Te'o and Notre Dame. From this point forward, ND will FOREVER be linked to Manti Te'o, and that's looking to be not a good thing.
