Weekend primer: Favorite Notre Dame memories

Sep 4, 2009, 8:02 PM EDT

In all my years as an Irish fan, this might be as excited as I’ve been for an opening game, not including my first as a Notre Dame student (Upset special against Michigan — the defending National Champions).

There is a sense of urgency in the air, and it’ll be interesting if the Irish can capture some of the magic that Charlie Weis’ first team had. Watching Notre Dame absolutely roll Pitt that evening, and the offensive explosion, we knew we were in for something special. That team had moxie, had a chip on their shoulder, and was ready to prove people wrong.

Now it’s time to find out if the 2009 edition of the Fighting Irish will have the same thing.

We’ve all got our own favorite memories of watching the Irish. Here’s another cool video put together by the crew at NBC Sports that shares a few memories from the Fighting Irish themselves.
