Yesterday the NFL lost one of its most controversial yet most transformational characters in its history -- Al Davis. Now, I'll never forgive Al Davis from keeping Jon Gruden from taking the Notre Dame football coaching job a number of years ago -- a fact that has never been officially confirmed, but I believe to be true.
Former Notre Dame Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Brown made a statement in a 2009 radio interview, that I'd like to believe he regrets to this day -- "Al Davis hated African American players from Notre Dame..." (see the link below).
The aforementioned points about Al Davis and Notre Dame could have a lot to do with the fact that Davis was an assistant coach at USC, early in his career...
If you're a fan of speeches, like me -- click on this link below. Al Davis "presented" more people for introduction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame than anyone else -- you're about to see why...

Took my weekly lap around the world wide web to take the media's temperature as to our IRISH and their performance yesterday against Air Force. Before kick-off a US Air Force STEALTH Bomber flew over Notre Dame Stadium -- see the photo. Here's some of the media coverage:
