Notre Dame Fans Thrilled to be #1


Fans all over Michiana are reacting to Notre Dame's number 1 ranking.

After Oregon and Kansas state lost their games Saturday night Notre Dame fans were in shock, in a good way.  Student John Brennan said, "we wanted to get into the top two but to be number one is pretty exciting.  It's pretty special."  Fan Joseph Berchtold said, "I was surprised Stanford came back and beat Oregon."  Student Michael Kane said, "I wanted one team to lose so we could play either Kansas State or Oregon but then things worked out almost too well and we suddenly realized we could be number one."  Student Michael Judd said, "I didn't wake up yesterday thinking Notre Dame would be number one."

And number one feels pretty good.  "It's pretty unbelievable to see the rankings come out and they're number one so it's incredible," said Brennan.  Judd said, "Notre Dame hasn't been number one in 20 years and to be a student here in the mix of things hanging out with my roommate it's just the best."

For Notre Dame Sophomore Michael Judd being number one is even more special since Sunday is his birthday.  "Gift from the Irish, Good lord above, best gift I could have," said Judd.
