lc5397 is on a distinguished road
Regardless of whether OD stays or goes, LC has issues to get back to where it was. Frankly, I'm more more concerned with the overall position of the school beyond just the football program.

1. There are less feeder schools.

2. The major feeder schools are more split between LC and NDCL (i.e. St. Gabriel). Back in the day, LC got huge numbers out of Eastern Cuyahoga and Western Lake County parishes.

3. Kirtland and Mentor have been really good for a long time.

4. Tuition keeps going up. Tuition seems to have gone up at a rate of double the rate of inflation.

5. Overall numbers are down. We seem to be stuck in the 140-150 student class in terms of size. This is larger than a football problem.
