Notre Dame’s proud history is what makes them such a powerful brand. As conference realignment heats up, Notre Dame can maintain its independence.

Notre Dame has a total of 11 claimed and 11 unclaimed national championships. The Fighting Irish have a litany of iconic coaches in their history. Namely, Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy, Ara Parseghian, Dan Devine, and Brian Kelly have led the Fighting Irish to success and glory.

And with great coaches have been great players. Heisman trophy winners Angelo Bertelli, Johnny Lujack, Leon Hart, Johnny Lattner, Paul Hornung, John Huarte, and Tim Brown are among them.

And then there was “The Gipper,” George Gipp, who was portrayed in a motion picture. An actor named Ronald Reagan played the role of Gipp and went on to be President of the United States. On campaign stops, Reagan often asked voters to “win one for the Gipper.”

Despite their success, Notre Dame has not won a national championship since 1988. The landscape of college football has changed, and Notre Dame refuses to make enough academic concessions to compete with powers such as the Alabama Crimson Tide. But they remain strong enough to retain an iconic program's brand power and popularity.
