Notre Dame tells high school they can’t use Fighting Irish mascot

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have picked a fight with  Kansas High School for using their mascot. Chapman Highschool has been using the Fighting Irish mascot since 1967, until the university sent them a cease and desist letter threatening legal action.

Chapman high principal Kevin Suther said, “Well when you get a letter from Notre Dame it gets your attention… For anything like stationary and school uniforms as long as its Chapman Fighting Irish, we are still the Fighting Irish.”

Chapman is still allowed to be the Fighting Irish but must change their mascot to be different than the Notre Dame leprechaun. The high school is used to change in the summer of 2008, the high school and town was destroyed by a tornado.

Notre Dame students plan to rush the field after Utah game

Historically, Notre Dame has been a football dynasty, but in recent years the Fighting Irish have been on the decline. Notre Dame is on track to beat the school’s all time losing record in a four-year span. Assuming Notre Dame loses to 4-3 Tulsa this Saturday, the Fighting Irish will break the record on the following home game, November 13 against No.8 Utah. While The Gipper may be rolling over in his grave, Notre Dame seniors are embracing the all time losing record. The Notre Dame Observer posted this letter to the editor asking students to rush the field after the Utah loss:

The senior class is on the brink of an achievement that has never been accomplished. Assuming (and this is a big assumption) that the football team beats Tulsa this weekend, the game against Utah will be our chance to break the record for most losses in a four-year period, previously held by the Class of 1964. When we get steamrolled by Utah on Nov. 13, we will officially be the losingest class in Notre Dame History. That day will also be Senior Day, a day that the senior class is allowed on the field at the end of the game. The senior class should not walk on field, but storm the field in celebration of its four seasons as spectators in the student section. The senior class should show its thanks and appreciation for a record-breaking four seasons by storming the field at the closing of the loss to Utah on Nov. 13.

Former Notre Dame QB Joe Montana speaks out on Rudy movie

Joe Montana’s son may be a walk on freshmen quarterback at Notre Dame, but apparently Joe Cool is not a fan of the movie Rudy. The made for movie Rudy moment at Notre Dame actually happened when Montana was playing there. When asked about it in a radio interview, Montana said:

“Well, the crowd wasn’t chanting. No one threw in their jerseys. He did get in the game. He got carried off [at the end of] the game. [...] Back then they tried to play someone at the end of [the season] that all the seniors could get in the last home game. The schedule was kind of set that way.
So he got in. He did get a sack. And then the guys carried him off, just playing around. I won’t say it was a joke, but it was playing around. He worked his butt off to get where he was and to do the things he did. But not any harder than anyone else.”

11 Notre Dame football players arrested at house party

After last season’s bust, the Fighting Irish are not getting the good start to their school year like they wanted to. 11 Notre Dame football players were arrested at a house party in South Bend. The players were mainly freshmen and sophomores, but Joe Montana’s son (pictured above), Nate a walk-on quarterback, was among those charged with underage drinking.

In total 43 were arrested, including two basketball players and a hockey player. According to WNDU.com, “All those arrested were held overnight until their blood alcohol content had dropped to legal levels.”

In their defense, they were just living up to the Irish name.
