The Michigan State-Notre Dame game should bring back the
all time great cliches. "Game of games," "battle of the century," "a
real bruiser," "dream game"-all these linguistical gems bring a tear
to the. eye.
However, too many sportswriters are intent on keeping a definite
pattern for the big game. Call it nostalgia, if you want, but if it was
good enough forRing Lardner for the Army-Navy games in 1920's, it
must be good enough today.
What'd They Say?
But in an unprecented break from tradition, the items expressed
here are the actual facts, what was really said.
News release: "We respect Michigan State's defense," a Notre
Dame coach was quoted as saying earlier today.
Actual quote: "Respect it! We've had Conjar and Eddy on
benzadrine all week. State's defense is so tough that if they were on
the German's side in World War II they could've spotted the Allied
troops on the one-yard line outside of Berlin and kept them out.
We're equipping our offensive line with bottles of Adolph's meat
tenderizer. The turning point of this game could be whether or not
Duffy decides to feed them this week."
News release: The general concensus from East Lansing is
that the fact that Notre Dame is steeped in tradition will have
no effect on the outcome.
Actual story: Three Michigan State football players reported
last night that Knute Rockne paid them an unexpected visit and
warned them that if they felt they had any chance of winning he'd
reincarnate the "Win it for the Gipper" speech. Another MSU player
1 said he heard "echos cheering Notre Dame's name." A befuddled
State, back contends that very night "four horseman ride by my
window shouting we're No. 1. Man, I can't get any sleep. It sounds
like they're shaking down the thunder from the sky."1
News release: A Notre Dame spokesman stated that, "We
haven't especially pointed to this game."
Actual statement: "Don't think it hasn't been a problem, keeping
their minds on Michigan State with the lunch meat we've been
feeding them every week. Duke! That game was enough to convincei
them that they's great. We kept telling them to save their energy
for this week, but, no, they had to keep scoring. It's enough to ruin
our indoctrination program of playing back last year's State game
for them every night in their sleep. It's tough scheduling nine scrim-
mages for just one game."
News release: When asked if it was hard getting the team
up for Indiana a week before the Notre Dame game, a MSU
coach replied, "We play them all one at a time."
Actual reply: "Not really. You see, in route to Bloomington we
took a side trip through South Bend just to keep the boy's minds
alert. We promised Bubba the Golden Dome if we won and Webster
gets the statue of Father Corby for a towel rack. Just in case they
remembered that they were playing against Indiana, Duffy mis-
takingly referred to the Hoosiers in his pre-game speech as Notre
Dame'three times. Lord knows we've tried. We won't even let them
eat meat on Friday."
News release: One Notre Dame student when asked if the
campus isn't a little extreme when the Irish won, chortled:
"We're really just like every other campus-we just love to win."
Actual chortle: "Are you kidding? We claim all prizes. What
other school would think of moving the' girl's campus (St. Mary's
College) onto ours-bodily after we beat Oklahoma in '57. We would
have done it too if they hadn't called out the National Guard. That
was a good one. But we have some better ones planned this time.
We figure the Notre Dame campus might look'better'down at St.
Mary's. Extreme? We invented football fever down here."
News release: One worker in the Michigan State Ticket
Office was heard to say: "Even with the many disappointed
people who didn't get tickets, they still were cooperative and
understanding. We've got the greatest fans in the world."
Actual overhearing: "Talk about fans! Three years ago we
couldn't give tickets away. Now a big game and. we're expected to
produce a million extra seats. People that don't get a ticket resort
to everything. Last night I was shadowed by three of them trying
to collect blackmail data. My banker threatened to foreclose if I
didn't deliver a couple right' on the fifty. My dentist was more
reasonable. He wouldn't let off the drill til' I promised two on the
forty. I had to promise my daughter three extra so I'd get the bath-
room in the morning. Let's hear it for fans."
It's not on-the-serene-and-ivy-covered-walls-of-the-Notre-Dame-
campus stuff but it probably presents best the honest flavor of the
game. Gosh, fellas, isn't it about time we abandoned what has been
said before? Huh?
Say, I got some great ones. How about: "It was not a day'for
the timid as the monsters from ... ." Or, "Reaching back into
the past, the Fighting Irish... ." Or, "Both teams quickly proved
that they came to play when . . . . " Or, "Outlined against a
blizzardly November sky the terrific duo zoomed again . . . ."

ment, Dr. Noonan returned to Notre Dame Universjy. as drtfeh r o Law,
where he is the author of NATURAL LAW FORUM 'and the director of the
Natural Law Institute. His interest in natural law has' produced tw"

HISTORY OF ITS TREATMENT BY CATHOLIC THEOLOGIANS -AND
CANOISTS. His knowledge of both the legalistic and biologistic treattment
of contraception and the personalist, existentials, and natdral law analysis
