Notre Dame and the 7-4-1 Schedule Model

Posted by Jim Miesle on August-14-2009 Add Comments

Since the announcement of Notre Dame taking on Army at Yankee Stadium in 2010, I have thought quite a bit about the new scheduling paradigm in South Bend.

When I first heard about former AD Kevin White trying to implement the “7-4-1” schedule model, I thought that it made all the sense in the world. Who doesn’t want to play seven home games against four true road games with the fifth coming at a neutral site?

As time has passed though, I must admit that I started to question this philosophy for one simple reason—sustainability.
