So much for a boring Notre Dame pep rally


The atmosphere at pep rallies the last few years hasn’t been the greatest. Outside of Rocket Ismail’s “Unbelief” speech before USC, it’s been tough to get too fired up for an event that’s designed to get everybody fired up.

Well last night changed that a bit. With an emotional Manti Te’o thanking the students for their support, Prince Shembo blaming Michigan for stealing his bike seat, and Troy Niklas ripping his shirt off before addressing the crowd, it was a pretty awesome performance all around. (I almost forgot Dickie V introducing the team!)
