There's plenty of talk going around the internet at this hour that the FIGHTING IRISH will become the BLACK IRISH tonight against USC! The rumor is Notre Dame will don black jerseys with green numbers - which I assume will be outlined in gold -- for tonight's game against the Trojans.
It's only six hours away from kick-off -- I suspect the Irish will not wear their intended game jersey until it's time to run out of the TUNNEL! Stay tuned!!!

Here's video of Friday's festivities on the University of Notre Dame campus -- as the Irish lead up to the prime-time kick-off against USC on NBC. Game time is set for 7:30 PM ET -- please note if you have the VERSUS channel you can catch a 30 minute pre-game show beginning at 7 PM ET. The photo above is of a "wooden" Trojan Horse that the ND student body built -- bringing back memories to 1977...

The last name Kiel is part of Notre Dame football lore... Will it be again?
In a surprising move, Gunner Kiel -- got to love that first name -- will be visiting Notre Dame today for the USC game. Kiel had committed to Indiana over the summer and most thought he was going to be a Hoosier. Well, as a "talking head" at ESPN might say "Not So Fast My Friend..." Here's a link to the South Bend Tribune story:
