NORMAN — Finally, could “Rudi” have happened anywhere else? Well, sure, but only at Notre Dame is it worth a movie.
Somehow, the Fighting Irish have been to college football what Disney has been to fantasy. You can love it, or you can want to throw up.
2. Being Notre Dame: Part of this is wrapped in No. 3, but how did a school in South Bend, Ind., with no more than 12,000 undergraduates come to rule the world?
It is a small Catholic university. They grow on trees in this country. But Notre Dame is special. So horribly special.
1. Hello: the Irish ended Oklahoma’s 47-game-winning streak. Worse, they were the only program to beat OU over a run of 71 games from 1951 to 1958 and they did it three times.
See you at the game.
