Isn't August here yet?
"Notre Dame finished the year with a 6-5-1 record. And the Irish
haven't really been the same since" CallI love how Jeff
Call is insinuating that the decline of ND football is mainly attributed to the
lose to bYu. Very typical.
I was at that game in 2004 and BYU knew of the significance of that win,
esepcially since the program was going downhill. To beat a team like ND in the
middle of that was awesome! The next game at ND should have been a lot closer.
Watkins admitted the atmosphere got to him and he missed some huge passes,
especially some bombs that would have been touchdowns if he could have held on
and caught them. Charlie Weiss I remember talked about how he was nervous about
the average size of, I think, linemen. 325 on average or so. Proved to not be
much of a factor, but I remember how nervous he was about it.I'm glad there was an article about the series history. I didn't
know about the previous 4 games really. Thanks for writing about ND
this week. It's gotten a lot of BYU fans excited about this series for
years to come!
AD NAUSEAM... Come on Deseret News... a four-part series on the dormant,
one-sided BYU vs. Notre Dame rivalry? I realize that this is a slow news
month... but COME ONE! I guarantee there's not a publication in South Bend
that will even mention this game until mid-October. Quite frankly... both
programs have been mired in mediocrity for years... and haven't been in the
national conversation since the mid-90's. Jeff... since your at it... why
not draft up a 4 part series on the status of the Jazz versus Trailblazers
@ bdb76I though the article was very interesting, so if you want,
you could just not read it..?
I was at the 1994 game also. Their stadium was not the best. We were packed
onto wooden planks for seats and endured heckling by home team fans at the
first of the game. Then came the silence. So, so sweet.
