Go Irish

Last Saturday’s defeat of the University of Pittsburgh gave every Notre Dame fan a great shot of encouragement.  At last a Notre Dame team had defeated a top 25 opponent in convincing form!  Many Notre Dame faithful like myself have a dose of cautious optimism about the season.  That optimism will come face to face with reality tomorrow in Ann Arbor when Notre Dame takes on number 3 ranked Michigan.  Michigan remains a perennial powerhouse in college football.  Their rivalry with Notre Dame extends back over on hundred years.  Tomorrow Notre Dame fans will watch the game hoping that the Irish will win, but also looking to measure a new team and a new coach against one of the best programs in the nation.  Win or lose, if Notre Dame plays well Irish fans know that the Weis era is off to a great start.
