Favorite Quote from an ND Coach: Lou Holtz in the locker room before the 1988 Notre Dame-Michigan game
"You don't have easy classes here. You don't get a certificate for good attendance. You don't get any leniency because you're a football player. You've got to compete with the best students in the country because you're a full-time student. You don't live in a fancy athletic dorm. You live with all the other students. You don't have a fancy training table, where they cater to you with steak every night. There aren't any fancy cars in our parking lot. There aren't any patsies on our schedule. Everybody we play is tough as all get-out. You aren't afforded the luxury of lifting weights whenever you want. And your social life here is curtailed a little bit. There aren't steroids here to help you get stronger, and there's no redshirting.

Everybody is saying that because of all these things, we can't be great. They think because you've paid a price academically and are disciplined and make sacrifices, that you can't be tough. That you can't be physical. Because the game has changed so much, with redshirting and all the rest, there are people who say Notre Dame can't win anymore. I don't believe that. I don't believe that we need to have that image anymore."
