PREFACE
1.
The 1966 season is best remembered for Notre Dame's 10-10 tie with Michigan State. See Mike Celizic, The Biggest Game of Them All: Notre Dame, Michigan State, and the Fall of '66 ( New York: Simon and Schuster, 1992), for a thoughtful analysis of that season and its impact on the development of commercialized college sport.
2.
The biennial contract with a major television network for the right to broadcast college football jumped from $15.5 million for the 1966 and 1967 seasons to $24 million for the 1971 and 1972 seasons. See Paul R. Lawrence, Unsportsmanlike Conduct: The National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Business of College Football ( New York: Praeger, 1987), 96.
