Nine times in the 107 year history of Notre Dame basketball, the #1 team in the nation has come to campus to play the IRISH. And, now SEVEN OUT OF NINE TIMES -- the IRISH BEAT #1!
My wife Susan and I are spending our first weekend at Notre Dame (after starting the new job at ND on Monday) and we watched the IRISH beat MICHIGAN (3 - 1) last night in hockey at a sold-out Compton Family Ice Arena...
And, we just watched the IRISH beat undefeated and #1 SYRACUSE (67 - 58) in a sold-out Purcell Pavillion! The eighth time Notre Dame has beaten a #1 in basketball -- which ties them for fourth all time!
What a first weekend on the job!
The photo was taken by Susan at game's end -- what a scene!
