Are the Notre Dame Fighting Irish back where they once belonged? Once upon a time, oh well, you already know the story.
It would seem to be that they were set up for another disappointing season, before season’s start. The Irish proved they are who they said they were with Jimmy Clausen, a team that they thought they were, but they weren’t. It turns out, this Notre Dame team is the real one. There’s no doubt after the triumphant effort on Saturday’s game. The Irish, who had won eight in a row heading into what seemed to be an upset against a middle of the road team in Pittsburgh, at 4-4, were down 21-6 in the fourth-quarter in front of their home-crowd, they needed a comeback. They needed some stops, the Irish we’re lucky. No, they just out-fought Pittsburgh. Say what you want about the referee missing a crucial call in the game, but you can’t deny the Fighting Irish’s fighting effort, which stood tall in the end-results of the game. A game which the Fighting Irish redeemed their legitimacy as a football program.
