Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame, Wake up the echoes cheering her name, Send a volley cheer on high, Shake down the thunder from the sky.

—from Notre Dame’s beloved "Victory March" "The first dream in my life was to go to Notre Dame." —Joe Montana "There’s no doubt about the great spirit they have here. Their kids just played possessed." —Florida State coach Bobby Bowden following Notre Dame’s epic 31–24 win over the Seminoles in 1993

From the Inside Flap

The numbers are overwhelming. Twenty-one national championships (and counting). The two greatest coaches, in terms of winning percentage, that college football has ever produced. Seven Heisman Trophy winners. Dozens of All-Americans. Countless statistical milestones. But the numbers alone don’t do justice to the impact that Notre Dame football has had and continues to have on its legion of fans, both in South Bend and across the nation. What takes place within the storied confines of Notre Dame Stadium under the watchful eyes of Touchdown Jesus is more than simply a game; it’s a way of life. Legendary coach Ara Parseghian put it this way: "There is a Notre Dame mystique that defies definition or description. It is something special in its combination of religion, education, and athletics. It is not only national, but international in scope. And there is a real tradition of achieving excellence whatever the odds." Game Day: Notre Dame Football is a celebration of that mystique, and of the decades of gridiron excellence that have created it.

By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 23, 2006
Format: Hardcover
There really is something magical about Notre Dame Football. Eve growing up as a Michigan Football fan I realized this. Part of it came from growing up in a Catholic family. We'd often visit my grandparents on Saturday afternoons and my grandmother always had the Notre Dame football game on on her radio. The fact that Notre Dame is not in a conference has provided them with the kind of national appeal that other programs don't have. Game Day Notre Dame Football is one of Triumph Books' Game Day series featuring the greatest players, games, and moments in Notre Dame Football history.

The numbers are staggering: 7 Heisman Trophy winners, 21 national championships, 179 first team All-Americans. With those stats it's no wonder that Notre Dame has been a football powerhouse since the beginning of the 20th century and the days of the legendary coach, Knute Rockne. It was Rockne who was responsible for developing the modern passing game where previously the pass had been a novelty.

Most people are aware of two of the most famous campus landmarks at Notre Dame. First the Golden Dome which was built after a fire destroyed the main building in 1879 and the 132 foot tall Touchdown Jesus. But there are other great landmarks including "We're No. 1 Moses" and "Fair Catch Corby" that are detailed in this great book. It's no wonder the Notre Dame campus is considered one of the most beautiful in the nation.

Great players abound in Notre Dame's history. Heisman winners Leon Hart, Johnny Lujack. Paul Hornung, and Tim Brown stand side-by-side with other legends like George Gipp, The Four Horsemen, Joe Montana, Alan Page, and Joe Theismann. Gipp, of course, has become the stuff of folklore.
