Notre Dame Fans have high expectations for upcoming football season

Posted:

Notre Dame held its annual Spring Football Game Saturday.  Thousands of excited fans came out and all that we talked with tell us their excitement is heightened this year after Notre Dame's 12 and 0 record last year.

This time last year their expectations for the regular season weren't that great.  Todd Wilkins said, "Last year I didn't know we were gonna do that well. "  But after a 12 and 0 regular season, fans have raised the bar for their Irish.  "Everybody's got a little more expectations this year and we're looking forward to see the new young guys come in and see what we can do," said Wilkins.  And Danny Rosas said, "everybody has high expectations.  We're all ecstatic about what coach Kelly is gonna be doing this year."

They think the football team will repeat what they did last year and do even better than that.  "I think 13-0 with the National Championship kinda expected in the next year or two," said Daniel Santana.

It's not just pure hope, fans believe the guys on the field have what it takes for another winning season.  Kathleen Clark said, "logically I think they can, I think they're retaining a lot of talent and the most important thing about the team is the spirit of the team and I think their working together as a team more so then individual stars and I think that's where the strength comes from and how they'll succeed "

The excitement and expectations are there.  Now fans patiently wait for the season to start and see how it all plays out.  Notre Dame starts their season against Temple on August 31st.
