Since most of my family went to Boston College, I was raised to not like Notre Dame. Their football team has been easy not to like. They seem to always underachieve, and have not been relevant in the past ten years. ND is a big attraction to my fellow preps at St. Sebs, but the gold helmets don’t have that much attraction for the rest of us.
Now ND is changing their uniforms to try to compete with all of the schools like Oregon rocking Nike swag. This is an epic fail on two counts. Number one: Adidas. Remember what Boobie Miles said, “Everybody knows it’s Nikes, Waterbug!” Number two: You can’t change your traditional uniforms unless your school has had a mega scandal (ask your buddies at Penn State).
