This Month On Irish Reveries - November 2001

The Irish Legends Newsletter, Irish Reveries is published monthly and features stories, anecdotes, humor and news from the history of the University of Notre Dame and its football teams. 

"At the moment when I touched the ball, life for me was complete." Years later, Knute Rockne reminisced about catching his first touchdown pass against Army in 1913. This November is the eighty-eighth anniversary of Notre Dame's great victory over the Cadets at West Point and the subject of this month's newsletter.

Notre Dame's victory over Michigan in 1909 was the school's first win over a major opponent, but the win against Army was significant because the cadets were one of the Eastern powerhouses and the game was covered by the New York newspapers. Although the forward pass was used before (mostly by Midwestern teams) it was Coach Harper's method of using the pass to spread out the Army defense, thereby opening up the running game for the Irish. Also innovative was the technique used in the passing attack of having the ends catch the passes in full stride with loose hands and relaxed fingers, rather than as stationary targets.

In Shake Down The Thunder, Murray Sperber states: "Because of the press, Catholics beyond the Midwest were beginning to notice Notre Dame and enjoy its football success. According to one historian, the victory over Army in 1913 was "the greatest single miracle in the history of Catholic higher education" because it began the transformation of Notre Dame "into a household word."
