So now that UTL II is over, Michigan's won (HELL YEAH) and we're all basking in the pleasant glow of victory, one thing I noticed during the game was how loud Notre Dame's band was. I mean from the student section you could hear them from the opposite corner of the stadium. I could barely even hear our band even though I was seated almost right behind them.
You heard the contrast in the halftime show, too. When Notre Dame was doing their number I remember thinking to myself, "Huh. I can actually hear the songs they're playing." Of course they got booed as they entered the stadium, and again to a lesser extent as they started their halftime performance, but after they were done I actually heard applause for them. I joined in. Hey, they earned it. They were good. (I feel okay saying this since we won.)
Anyone else, or am I Irish-crazy?
