9781572438811: Game Day: Notre Dame Football: The Greatest Games, Players, Coaches and Teams in the Glorious Tradition of Fighting Irish Football

Whether rediscovering the best team moments, or initiating into the histories and traditions of Fighting Irish fandom, this book about the University of Notre Dame football team is both a useful resource and cherishable memorabilia. Packed with anecdotes of the players, explanations about the beginnings of rivalries and traditions, detailed histories about the greatest players and moments in the school’s history, lists of the most successful seasons, recaps of the most exciting games ever played, and year-by-year statistics, this collectible book is the primary source for anyone eager to be an expert regarding anything about the Fighting Irish. The book captures the essence of what it means to be a true Notre Dame fan: more national championships than any program, seven Heisman Trophy winners, blue and gold (and sometimes green), the House That Rockne Built, the Golden Dome, Touchdown Jesus, Ara, “The Victory March,” pep rallies in the JACC, gold dust, Fair Catch Corby, the Irish Guard, “Notre Dame, Our Mother,” and the Four Horsemen.

From the Publisher:

Cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame, Wake up the echoes cheering her name, Send a volley cheer on high, Shake down the thunder from the sky.

—from Notre Dame’s beloved "Victory March" "The first dream in my life was to go to Notre Dame." —Joe Montana "There’s no doubt about the great spirit they have here. Their kids just played possessed." —Florida State coach Bobby Bowden following Notre Dame’s epic 31–24 win over the Seminoles in 1993

From the Inside Flap:

The numbers are overwhelming. Twenty-one national championships (and counting). The two greatest coaches, in terms of winning percentage, that college football has ever produced. Seven Heisman Trophy winners. Dozens of All-Americans. Countless statistical milestones. But the numbers alone don’t do justice to the impact that Notre Dame football has had and continues to have on its legion of fans, both in South Bend and across the nation. What takes place within the storied confines of Notre Dame Stadium under the watchful eyes of Touchdown Jesus is more than simply a game; it’s a way of life. Legendary coach Ara Parseghian put it this way: "There is a Notre Dame mystique that defies definition or description. It is something special in its combination of religion, education, and athletics. It is not only national, but international in scope. And there is a real tradition of achieving excellence whatever the odds." Game Day: Notre Dame Football is a celebration of that mystique, and of the decades of gridiron excellence that have created it.
