I am borrowing from Notre Dame here. But even USC and Michigan fans will accept this as a universal concept.
Last year the University of Notre Dame celebrated 175 years since its founding. There was a lot to celebrate — far more than the 7 Heisman Trophy winners since Angelo Bertelli in 1943. More notably, Notre Dame literally considers its greatest accomplishment as establishing itself upon the principal, “A Force For Good”. These were the words uttered by the Catholic priest founders of the University in the winter of 1842.
