*THEME MUSIC STARTS PLAYING*

In a time not so long ago, in a Stadium not so far away...there was a team called NOTRE DAME that loved to play football and wore shiny helmets while doing so. However, the evil USC TROJANS, led by the Emperor PETE CARROLL, destroyed the Irish in annual battles in the frozen turf of South Bend and the sunny skies of Southern California.

Desperate for help, and frustrated with Notre Dame's scarce success against USC, the Fighting Irish turned to BRIAN KELLY for aid. Under his guidance, and with the leadership of DESHONE KIZER, WILL FULLER, and TERRY JILLERY, the Irish managed to get back to their winning ways. Now, as new USC coach CLAY HELTON leads the Trojans to South Bend for another battle, the Irish hope to emerge victorious...

*VICTORY FANFARE PLAYS*

Wow. Only a few hours after Michigan suffered one of the most improbable last-second losses in college football history against MSU (honestly, it couldn't have happened to a better team, eh?), Notre Dame vanquished its other archrival in a hard-fought 41-31 win over USC. Our beloved team is now 6-1 heading into the bye week, a position that many teams would kill to be in. And to celebrate, let us continue to indulge in our silly weekly tradition of captioning photos...
