The following Notre Dame football coaches BEAT USC in their third-year running the IRISH football program -- Ara Parseghian in 1966, Dan Devine in 1977 and Lou Holtz in 1988 -- and all three won the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP that season!
Note to the Notre Dame Family -- this is Coach Kelly's THIRD SEASON at the helm of the Fightin' Irish!
1966: ARA PARSEGHIAN'S IRISH ROLL USC
1977: DAN DEVINE'S IRISH ROLL USC
1988: LOU HOLTZ'S IRISH ROLL USC

Lane Kiffin is under the microscope right now with the performance of his football team this season -- so what does he do a little more than 48 hours before kick-off against Notre Dame?
Kiffin "plays the Brian Kelly card" -- talking to the media yesterday -- sending a message to USC Athletic Director Pat Haden...

At 11:38 PM last night -- a Notre Dame fan from Charleston, SC became unique visitor #500,000 to the ND GO IRISH BLOG!
I am very thankful that so many members of the Notre Dame Family have chosen to follow the positive news about our favorite university at this site. Seems appropriate that this milestone would be achieved on THANKSGIVING DAY.
As has become custom here at the ND GO IRISH BLOG -- I compare the visitor count to the size of an American city. At 500,412 (where we're at at the moment of this post) the ND GO IRISH BLOG would be the 34th largest city in America -- just ahead of three "California towns" -- could be a good omen for Saturday night!
- #33 Tucson, AZ: 520,116
- #34 ND GO IRISH BLOG: 500,412
- #35 Fresno, CA: 494,665
- #36 Sacramento, CA: 466,488
- #37 Long Beach, CA: 462,257
Thank you Notre Dame Family!
