Rivalries, they are just one of the many things that make college football so great.
According to The Block M, Michigan students “pulled a fast one on Notre Dame,” Tuesday night.
The students hung a Michigan banner that stated “Beat the Irish” on Notre Dame Stadium, as well as raised a Michigan flag on campus and decorated the statues of legendary Irish coaches with Michigan apparel.
The following was from an email sent to the Daily from the students:
“The ironic part is that there were some Notre Dame students camped out on the other side of the stadium to protect it, but we came through the campus rather than from the road, so they didn’t see us coming,” one member said in a separate email. “The hardest part was making sure there was no one around … when we went to put up the banner, because there was absolutely no cover to hide behind as we hung it, and it is directly across from one of the main campus libraries.”
“With little lighting we couldn’t get a great picture,” the member continued. “Regardless, it was well worth it knowing that as kids were walking to class early this morning across the pristine lawns and perfectly manicured gardens of South Bend, there was a maize and blue ‘M’ flag flying above their heads.
“Ultimately, we just wanted to show our pride in Michigan while encouraging passion for and loyalty to this great University we call our own.”
The drive from Ann Arbor to Notre Dame is just under three hours. The Irish and Wolverines will get after it this Saturday at 7:30 PM ET in one of the weekend’s marquee match ups.
Your turn Notre Dame.
