A Riveting Play of the 2010 Notre Dame Football Season?

So what was the most riveting play? The game breaker? That definitional play of the Notre Dame 2010 season? Can it be even summed up in one play? One moment? One turning point in the season? What sticks in your craw? What could have been? What made you vomit? Why did you wail and nash your teeth? Wring your hands over an empty beer can. The play that made you cheer lustily and loud for old Notre Dame? Is it one play that can even sum up your feelings?

Well we assigned our video and tape assistant editor Suzanne to come up with the answer. In no particular order except in how they occurred here is what she dug up.

++ The 95 yard touchdown catch by Kyle Rudolph against Michigan that put Notre Dame temporarily in the lead very late in the fourth quarter.

++ The fake Michigan State Field goal in overtime that secured a victory for the Spartans?

++ The season ending hit absorbed by Dayne Crist against Tulsa?

++ The thrown interception by Tommy Rees in the end zone against Tulsa?

++ The bone crushing run into the end zone by Robert Hughes culminating a smash mouth drive against U$C securing a victory?

++ The interception by Harrison Smith in the waning seconds against U$C to stop a frantic effort?

It is easy to point to the USC game however look and think deeper. Did Suzanne miss something? Was/is there a turning point, a defining moment or is it a collage of plays, events, and games played to where Notre Dame is today, facing the University of Miami in the Sun Bowl? What could have been?
