Growing up in Illinois in the forming of my brain stage of development, it was all about Notre Dame football as far as college goes. Hell, they were always on t.v. Never could get attached to any other team because they are what I saw.
I am the biggest synic when it comes to them though. Been through too many of those 6-0, 7-0, 8-0 lose to BC, or Navy or what have you seasons. So, every game this year I looked at every team as a threat and rightfully so. Probably should not have won a couple of those games.
But we made it! It has been a long road and I doubted whether or not Brian Kelly was the man for the job or not. But he was.
