Greetings, Her Loyal Sons readers! The #HLSRecap is alive and kicking for its fifth season. For those finding the recap for the first time, a quick summary: #HLSRecap collects the best tweets made immediately before, during and after a Notre Dame football game and puts them into one, easy-to-read story. We can’t turn losses into wins, but we can make you smile as you revisit the game through the keyboards of the Irish fans experiencing it in real time.
There’s just one small change this year. I’m in charge of everything: Collecting the tweets, putting the story together and issuing the Top 25. If you weren’t included this time, it’s because 1) you weren’t funny enough 2) you weren’t insightful enough 3) I didn’t see your tweet 4) It’s my passive aggressive way of saying, “I hate you.” If you’d like to increase your chances of making the Nevada recap, feel free to use #NDFB or #HLSRecap for your in-game tweets.
The Irish open their season on the road for the first time in a decade and lose a double-overtime heartbreaker to the Texas Longhorns. Here are the best tweets from Notre Dame fans during the game.
