Are you shitting me! There are fans out there (Who post under the login "Anonymous" I might add..) who think this Bowl win for Notre Dame is something to comment upon?
IT WAS THE SHERATON HAWAII BOWL...
For God Sakes, this is the most storied program in the history of Collegiate Athletics, the same storied program that happened to beat just their 2nd Bowl eligible opponent of the year. The other being Navy but we've gone there already, for a crowd pleasing 7-7 record.
I think the Packers Head Coach's comments following the win over the 0-16 Lions might be more appropriate:
“I want to politely try to avoid the question here. That’s tough. That’s a tough deal.”
Hey man, if you ND Fans out there can get excited about winning the Hawaii Bowl, I'm happy for ya! But let's establish one thing for certain... Winning the Hawaii Bowl and the excitement it's created is a very clear representation of the State of the Football Program at Notre Dame.
Oh how I long for the arrogance of Notre Dame's past, they used to decline these insignificant Bowls and their petty offerings...
Rally sons of Notre Dame
Sing her glory and sound her fame
Raise her Gold and Blue
And cheer with voices true:
Rah, rah, for Notre Dame
We will fight in every game,
Strong of heart and true to her name
We will ne'er forget her
And will cheer her ever
Loyal to Notre Dame.
Cheer, cheer for Old Notre Dame,
Wake up the echoes cheering her name,
Send a volley cheer on high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky!
What though the odds be great or small,
Old Notre Dame will win over all,
While her loyal sons are marching
Onward to victory!
Rock on Brothers... Rock on!
