Well, the season did not end as I had hoped. But, last night's loss to Alabama does not take away one iota from the fact that this year's Notre Dame football season kept many of us glued to our television sets every Saturday afternoon. The fact that a Mormon from Hawaii was the face of Notre Dame all autumn was an especially charming side story, and what an outstanding young man he is, going through extreme personal tragedies with dignity and faith. The Fighting Irish were no match for the Crimson Tide, who deserve the crown they have won. But, it was a great season for Notre Dame and, let's hope, the start of more to come.
