that all of the detractors of the Call to Change and all those students who think football is unimportant would read this and some of the other posts and see that its more than just the game. Football at Notre Dame has been a beacon to millions of followers, a unifying force for thousands of alumni, and an allegory of life to the men who have represented The University of Notre Dame in the past.
Its not about bragging rights at the water cooler. That is a shallow assertion made by young students who have no appreciation for the real Notre Dame. Notre Dame means hope, faith, opportunity and commitment to excellence in everything we undertake.
