Well, this is definitely one post that I did not want to write. Not just because the rumors of potentially losing five-star defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes, but also watching my neighbors to the north get devastated by a tornado. Forgive the quick aside, but I couldn't possibly write this in good conscience without mentioning this. If you are able, the Red Cross is a great way to send aid as is donating blood -- there are loads of people that will need the help.
Now, with that all being said (and hopefully a bit of perspective given), let's dig into the latest with Eddie Vanderdoes.
Better late than never...or something...right?
Anyways, this week has been rather brutal. Thankfully I got some time to unwind at last night's Rangers game, but once I returned I too damn sleepy to think of anything to write. I made an executive decision to punt the Roundup to this evening, likely making Biscuit's head explode that I put baseball as a higher priority than football writings.
This weekend, Notre Dame Seniors will enter the Stadium where they never saw their team lose this season. But they won’t be cheering for just another football victory. They’ll be cheering for a far more important victory – their own graduation. Keep in mind: football is a nice touch, but our whole purpose here is the education that culminates in graduation. And that’s why more of our football players graduate here than anywhere else (and by “more” I mean very nearly every single one of them). So it is fitting that victory be laid on top of victory by conferring degrees in the 360 degree arena of triumph known as Notre Dame Stadium…until they change it…again.
