Excitement level up this year for Notre Dame Football

Posted:

It's that time of year again.  Notre Dame Football is back.  After a stellar season last year fans are extra excited to see what the Irish will do this year.  They cannot wait to see the Irish play Saturday.  Students say it's what everyone has been talking about on campus this week and even since before that.

Hundreds of fans packed the South Quad Friday night where the pep rally was held.  There was clapping, singing, and a whole lot of cheering.  The excitement only grew when Coach Brian Kelly and the team took the stage.  Coach Kelly told everyone they're not going to want to miss a minute of tomorrow's game.  "Get into the stadium early because you're gonna want to see this team.  You're gonna want to see them truly because we are going to play incredible football for ya."

Coach Kelly also said that everybody still wants to talk about last season.  But he doesn't want to talk about last season, he wants to talk about right now.  However, fans say that you can't avoid talking about last season because the team's record last year is why everyone is extra excited for this season.

Fans say the excitement level at this pep rally is different from years past.  "I think it's up a level from last year," said Notre Dame Senior Kiah Schaefbauer.  "Just cause we had such a great season last year everyone's really amped for us to come out hard this year too. "

Fans say they've been anxiously waiting for the season to begin.  Schaefbauer said, "Most of my friends and I have just been daydreaming about it."

Because there's now high hopes the Irish will do big things again this year.  Notre Dame Freshman Vika Boentaram said, "we're hoping for a great year."  And Freshman Tucker Triolo said, "I think we're gonna have a successful season.  People have their doubts cause of the quarterback thing but I think Reese is gonna come in and do a really good job for us.  We're looking forward to another undefeated season.   We're very excited."

Fans say last season was just the start of something amazing.  "We're ready to make our big turnaround and become one of the best programs in college Football again," said Triolo.  Schaefbauer said, "I think this year can really make a statement for us that it wasn't just a fluke last year.  We're back. "

So they'll be out there in the stands to make sure they don't miss a second of the comeback.  "I will be out there.  I'm gonna try and get as close to the front as I can.  I want to have a really good view when we beat Temple," said Schaefbauer.
