I grew up at ND, where my dad was a professor and we went to all the home games and rooted our hearts out in the 70's and early 80's during my formative years. We then moved back to California, and I went to UCLA, but Notre Dame continues to be my favorite team, because I firmly believe they are one of the very few teams that makes an effort to recruit good citizens and teach good character, while also kicking ass on the football field. My alma mater is probably in that second tier of teams that cares more than the average school, but Notre Dame is still my first love, and I really appreciate hearing first hand stories of good citizenship from the players.
and into '70s. I too care WAY too much about the games' outcomes. But, it's because I fervently believe there is something very special about ND winning - because the pursuit of wins is done the right way. Thanks!
Mostly very good folks - from both sides - and a great atmosphere.
Nashville is a terrific venue.
The game being played in Nashville was the main reason we went. We love that city.
Downtown events and vibe were fun. We stayed at the team hotel and our G14 got a number of pics with the very accommodating ND players.
Gaylord Opryland (ND hotel) is a bit of a hike from downtown but it all worked out well as there were sort of two distinct spots (downtown and hotel) where you could count on there being a lot going on.
Totally enjoyed the game. Got great seats through ND and the first drive totally set the mindset that we were there to win. Go Irish!
We still have good people representing the University
