I've never been to ND stadium, but can someone tell me if that really is their scoreboard above the entrance please? If so, that thing is about the same size as my 60'' TV.

It's very exposed and out in the open, and while ND students aren't exactly Sparties or Buckeyes, it still took some cojones to pull that off.

Bravo.

"At the end of the game, when we embarrass them worse than we did UM, I want to see a pic of the ND team standing around it, pointing at it, and laughing their asses off." - from DomerDomain

Somebody is having fond memories of 1989...or maybe 1998. It's one of these (or 13 other  games in college football history) certainly.

"I hope we leave it there. I want BK to take them the players to it before/after every practice. I want it before/during/after the game. I want the players to see it, feel it, and then act on it. we already walk into this game a faster, meaner, more aggressive team. Now we need to use this to knock scUM on their ass and to not even let them have a chance of coming back at the start of the 4th quarter. At the end of the game, when we embarrass them worse than we did UM, I want to see a pic of the ND team standing around it, pointing at it, and laughing their asses off.

I feel sorry for DR after this stunt. They are going to be out for blood on this one. I would love to see the video of BK talking to the guys before/halftime/after the game about this. This does tell me that the scUM are scared coming into this game and that they need to take a shot to feel better about themselves. Good luck with that."

 
That would be pathetic if Notre Dame needs a poster to get motivated to play a rivalry game...

One of the comments compares us to the USF Bulls. I feel like ND fans are struggling with that team right now given its Holtz connection. USF isn't just another team it's their little brother. Some ND fans pull for USF b/c Skip Holtz coaches at the school. For how long? Who knows, but I will say Skip is a better guy than Todd Graham

Also, If any of you are interested, I will have my iPhone on in the stadium.  So, for those of you sitting near the 35 yeard line on the ND side who can't read the stadium scoreboards beacuse they are a disgrace, feel free to look over my shoulder for scores, stats, and replays.  ND... where technology goes to die.

Michigan Daily article has additional details: Group of University students pulls fast one at Notre Dame Stadium

One member said eight students made the trip to South Bend and another two were involved in planning. The person claimed the group had little difficulty scaling the gate, and once inside, they used zip ties to secure the banner.

“The ironic part is that there were some Notre Dame students camped out on the other side of the stadium to protect it, but we came through the campus rather than from the road, so they didn’t see us coming,” one member said in a separate email. “The hardest part was making sure there was no one around … when we went to put up the banner, because there was absolutely no cover to hide behind as we hung it, and it is directly across from one of the main campus libraries.”
