When the Irish line up on defense for the first time on September 3rd against the University of South Florida -- we'll run out a set of linebackers in our 3 - 4 system that are the best we've seen in a gold helmet since the Holtz years.  In fact, for the first time in so, so long -- we'll run out an entire defense that will be thought of as one of the best units in all of college football.  It's going to be fun to dominate again!!!  The folks at UND.COM rolled out a feature today on our linebacker corps -- here's the link:
