|Favorite Quote from an ND Coach:||I have three:
The first is a letter from Frank Leahy to my grandmother wishing her Christmas blessings in response to a Christmas card she sent and thanking her for "allowing" my father to continue working in the football office after he graduated.
The second, as inscribed in a copy of "Notre Dame Football - The T Formation":
To "Namurtha's Father",
In appreciation of your friendship and the many fine services you have given to our Athletic Dept.
Much success awaits you.
The third is from a conversation I had with Ara at a CYO dinner when I was 12 or 13, after I told him I listen to the cassette tape noted below and get so excited hearing him speak to the team...
Ara (in a stern voice): "Son, whoever made that tape shouldn't have. What is said in the locker room is between me and the team and should never be made public."
Then, with a smile and a wink of his eye, "But it was pretty good, wasn't it?"
|Miscellaneous Data:||I have a cassette tape of Ara Parseghian's half-time and post-game speeches from ND's 13-11 victory over Alabama in the Orange Bowl on January 1, 1975 - Ara's last game.|
