Every year, those college football fans that have blue and gold running through their veins go green with pride when the Fighting Irish football schedule is released. A million fans rush to mark their calendars for the big game. A hundred thousand fans (at least) clamor to get tickets to the match-up they dream to see. Notre Dame has been, and probably always will be, one of the most beloved teams in college history. Even before Knute Rockne, the Fighting Irish had character. After Rockne, they had character and a personality to match. Winning is not a luxury, itís a tradition for the Fighting Irish.
