all right - but not the ones
mentioned in Notre Dame's
famous fight song.
These were the echoes of
"It's Great to be a Michigan
Wolverine" reverberating
through Notre Dame Stadi-

ines jogged off the field with
their winged helmets raised
to the sky.

Just not onward to victory.
Instead, the Fighting Irish

humiliating, shocking and
total defeat at the hands of
the 11th-ranked Wolverines

"Notre Dame is a great

when you can win against a

it's special, because it's hard.
