October 20, 2001

10-20-01 the last time the Irish beat USC in South Bend.  Bob Davie and his boys did it, 27 to 16.
Coach Brian Kelly has played ten freshmen this year.  Those guys were eight years old when Notre Dame pulled off that win.  Dang that makes me old too.
All great football programs have their rivalries whether it’s Auburn and Alabama, Texas and Oklahoma, Michigan and Ohio State.
USC is ours.
The Irish are due to start another dominance run against the Trojans.
Between 1983 and 1995 Notre Dame won 11 straight.
Between 2002 and 2009 USC won 8 straight.
Between 2010 and ?? Notre Dame will win ?? straight.
Who could ask for a better setting?  The students will be back from break and the entire campus primed for the rivalry.  The trees on campus turning into autumn colors.  Notre Dame Stadium packed.  A night game in prime time.  Cool crisp fall weather.  Yellow mums set out on both sides in front of the “beautiful people gold seats”.  80,000 crazed fans waving green towels.  The Irish running onto the field wearing green jerseys with gold letters.
Man it is going to be electric.
Hey, on the left side of the Blog are mug shots of the 15, 2012 recruits thus far.  Also a list of recent articles.  On the right side is a list of popular posts and the football schedules.  Check them all out.

You forgot to mention that tailgating opens up at 730am. Twelve hours of tailgating, the first night game in 20 years, and USC. Those are going to combine for something special.

I wonder if the Irish run practices later in the evening. Forth quarter will be getting close to beddie bye time. As for me, I'll have to prop myself up with a pot of coffee. Couldn't last the game watching from a saloon.

Yes, Notre Dame has drawn up a nasty night schedule for us old folks.

This is the second of four night games (Wake Forest start time has not been announced).

I for one will require a nice afternoon nap to be able to make it all the way.
