2012 was a return to glory for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The proverbial echoes were awoken as the school finished the regular season undefeated.
Despite the lopsided loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the BCS National Title Game, there are plenty of positives going on in South Bend.
With Brian Kelly staying at the school, there's every reason to believe that this past season was unlike the false dawns previously seen under Charlie Weis and Tyrone Willingham.
In order for that to happen, it's imperative that Kelly restock the Fighting Irish with plenty of talent from this year's recruiting class.
