"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Not sure if I should be irate or not, please inform me.
Notre Dame boosters are essentially paying big bucks to send a bunch of elite high school kids to Ireland to play in a tournament the day before their game against Navy. This tournament is halfway across the world, but it's just the BIGGEST coincidence that ND plays the next day. These kids all have the option to attend the game. It's legal in the eyes of the NCAA, but is it okay for us to rabble a bit?
It's an away game for ND, so they're not allowed to have visitors. So these kids can still be flown out to the Dome to catch a Fighting Irish game again, free of charge.
