How would you like to be remembered as playing a role in one of the great victories in Notre Dame football history?
The rise back to power, respect and the national championship for the Fighting Irish:
HERE IS YOUR CHANCE….
2000 campaign was an exciting and successful season for the IRISH, but
still leaves ND short of greatness and on the cusp of prominence. They
need to reach back to their rootsto the glory daysto attain even greater
status. How appropriate the Fight Song lyrics provide us the means: Wake
Up The Echoes.
Nobody knows IRISH football like their fans, and as such, you can
immortalize the great moments in Notre Dame football history. Every Irish
fan has a favorite player, team, play, or game that stands out from the
rest. This is your chance to play a role and help us “Wake Up The Echoes”.
By rallying the fans we can help to revive the glory daysfrom that seat in
Polo Grounds to the Cotton Bowl to the Horseshoe of Ohio State and the
Coliseum of Southern Cal. We need to shake off the cobwebs and polish the
Dome. WE NEED TO RAISE THE SPIRIT THAT IS NOTRE DAME.
This is the charge of the University’s fans. By documenting in a
book the collaborative memories that are vividly etched in our minds and
burned into our hearts of Notre Dame, its team and its players, we can
illustrate what made the FIGHTING IRISH great and different from
other schools and programs in our sight. The reasons will ring through our
stories, as well as, those of our parents, our grandparents, our children,
our cousins, our friends, our aunts and our uncles. We can do this by
documenting them, and share them with the world.
As Knute once said at the end of a pep talk before he sent
his team onto the field to do battle, “What do you say boys?"
