Another preseason video to get you ready for September 4th. This spot appeared on NBC during the Hall of Fame game last week.
I don't know about how other people feel but I love the fact that Dayne Crist and Manti Te'o have emerged as leaders of this team. Both committed to Notre Dame against stacked odds (Dayne coming on-board just a year after Jimmy Clausen enrolled with such fanfare and Manti coming to the Bend despite watching the Syracuse debacle on his visit) and both seem to have a keen understanding and appreciation of what representing the University means.
I know that players are coached to say all the right things at all times when it comes to the media, but there's something about these guys that seems so sincere. If the troops follow their lead and truly buy in then good things are going to happen on a grand scale sooner rather than later.
