Fans at Legends of Notre Dame discuss disappointing loss

Posted:

There was a lot of disappointed fans at Legends of Notre Dame following a big loss in Miami.

The restaurant was packed at the start of the game, but by halftime, the crowd thinned out.

But loyal fans stuck it out to the bitter end.

"Huge loss tonight. I wasn't expecting to lose by this much. I was expecting to win. For it to be this bad of a loss is just crushing," says Notre Dame fan Eddie Derham.

Notre Dame fan Daniel Shaw adds, "It's a big disappointment. I mean I was hoping to see them raise the trophy at the end. But it is what it is. It was a great season."

Despite the disappointing loss, one thing is for sure, Notre Dame fans are loyal.

They say win or lose, they love cheering on their Irish.

"I have always been a Notre Dame fan," says Jack Homan.

Homan went to Notre Dame in 1941.

He didn't get his degree because he was called to fight in World War II.. and the trip to campus Monday, was an 89th birthday gift from his son.

"He loves Notre Dame so much and it just meant so much to him and he's a great dad so we're glad to have him here," says John Homan, Jack's son.

Sure, a win is much better than a loss, but fans say you can't discredit the impressive season the Irish had.

"They're really good and they deserved to go to the championship so they should be proud either way," says fan Kelley Cline.

"It's definitely a step in the right direction. Kelly's definitely done some good things so I'm excited for the future," says Derham.

Fan Alex Altenhof says, "We love our Irish and we're going to be hopeful for next season."

Notre Dame fans were hoping that the 1988-89 season wouldn't be the last National Championship celebration, but they say they'll encourage their team to have another great season, later this year.
