For better or worse, the Notre Dame – Miami series will always be referred to by this now infamous moniker from the late 80’s and despite the two schools not being quite what they were during that epic showdown in the fall of ’88, this weekend’s game has fans on both sides of the field plenty excited.
By the way, we are going six weeks strong with these Friday posts which I think is now a record for us. Without further ado… we bring you this week’s Wake Up the Echoes.
Let’s start with the intro from the ’88 game with the classic CBS intro music. Sorry NBC, but I love CBS’s tune.
Lou Holtz talking about the build up of the ’88 game.
And Dr. Lou talking about the pre-game speech and the brawl on the field. Not gonna lie, I may have gotten goosebumps listening to the players talk about Lou’s famous line.
One last clip of Lou talking about the ’88 game – this time about stopping Miami’s fake punt.
And now for the full game highlights. Man, look at that stadium rocking and just how confident that team was. I want to think we are close to recapturing that, but still trying to keep somewhat reserved.
Rocket being all Rocket on Miami in 1990.
Highlights from Notre Dame’s romp over Miami in the 2010 Sun Bowl.
Posted this the other day, but this video shows just how much work went into the helmets for this weekend – despite what you may think of them.
And here is Manti Te’o and Tyler Efiert unveiling the full uniform Notre Dame will be sporting this weekend.
Oh, in case you forgot, Notre Dame is 4-0 thanks to that win over Michigan two weeks ago.
We haven’t closed with Here Come the Irish in a little while… so…
Go Irish!! Let’s keep those winning ways going so we’re talking about the 5-0 Fighting Irish in next week’s edition.
