      Whoever named the team the “Fighting Irish” was a genius. My father-in-law, God rest his soul, was the embodiment of that name. He could cry when one of his cattle was injured, but don’t get in his way when his “Irish” was up. And you could actually see his eyes dance when he heard a jig. That being said, I hope the team has its “Irish” up when they play in Miami. They are in good hands with Coach Kelly. Go Irish!!!!

    4. I have been an Irish fan for 78yrs, since 5yrs and this is history being made! Love the song,
      The IRISH with Coach Kelly will make us PROUD! Can’t wait! Will be ready with my Irish rosary!

    5. nice. Go Irish.

    6. Made me cry ! Go IRISH !

    7. I’ll cry if they get run like this K state. Leave in the third quarter if you wanna play like that. I don’t wanna see the other coach giving a coy smirk at the end of game. Show up, Irish. Fight.

    8. Hats off to the Wolfe Tones on this video of great lyrics and history of our beloved Fighting Irish of Notre Dame! All loyal sons and daughters will be cheering the Irish onward to victory Monday night. And theres a magic in the sound of their name, Here Come the IRISH of NOTRE DAME! GO IRISH!
