The dawn of another season is upon us. The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame are in Dublin ready to kick off season three of the Brian Kelly Era and for at least one week, all Notre Dame fans can still dream about a season where all of the what ifs work out in Notre Dame’s favor.
With the new season here, we kick off our weekly Wake Up the Echoes column featuring a series of Notre Dame related videos to get you sufficiently pumped up for the weekend’s game.
It’s tough for me to go a single Wake Up the Echoes post without posting this video from the ’93 Florida State game. I love it. It gets me pumped up. You should probably get used to it.[youtube]cipJq3ZHuuQ[/youtube]
Some highlights from last year when Notre Dame finally got back to beating Navy like, well, Notre Dame should beat Navy.[youtube]UxEdPcl7_LM[/youtube]
And a promo for this year’s contest in Dublin.[youtube]6agho_pbFLM[/youtube]

We’re going inside ’em, we’re going outside ’em. Inside ’em and outside ’em.[youtube]NmY7ttVNiWo[/youtube]
This has nothing to do with Notre Dame football at all, but it is sports related and is from a movie depicting one of the greatest victories in USA Olympic history and I love America.[youtube]vwpTj_Z9v-c[/youtube]
Don’t care how inaccurate the movie may actually be… I watch Rudy before the start of every season and am watching it as I prepare this post. Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudy… Ruuuuuuuuuuuuuudy… Gets me every time.[youtube]ve_1DvNy5Vs[/youtube]
And if you can watch this clip and not get a little choked up… well then you either don’t have a pulse or aren’t a Notre Dame fan.[youtube]CIab7t2ikPo[/youtube]
Oh yeah, this guy is the quarterback at Notre Dame now.[youtube]Wcd0CED1yKI[/youtube]
And is there any other way to close this out for the first Wake up the Echoes of the season. Here Come the Irish!!![youtube]oG63YiRufSI[/youtube]
