Behold, Notre Dame Stadium's 2013 promotional cup game: It is...not strong.

The "Figthing Irish" opened their season against Temple and a few people in attendance noticed that something was off. Either the university is invoking a Garden of Eden theme (it's a Fig Thing - you wouldn't understand) or it's celebrating that best-selling cookie that SERIOUSLY WHO EATS FIG NEWTONS? WHO?

Either way, the Figthing Irish beat the Owls 28-6. Cheer, cheer.

I guarantee that at least 30% of the ND fan base is saying, "It's Gaelic! They totally meant to do that! And Ron Powlus was the greatest qb ever!"

"Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the bear eats you."

I was in the stands when Powlus came to OSU and that was probably the loudest I ever witnessed Ohio Stadium. They couldn't call their plays. So he migth have been the greatest ND QB ever.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

Someone just got fired in the ND athletic department.

Hardly, raping students and killing a videographer aren't punishable offenses...I doubt mispelling anything raises an eyebrow.

Somehow, this is Gordon Gee's fault.

I've never said I 'hate' anyone because that would imply I had any emotion for them whatsoever.

Bullshit. It was entirely Urban Meyer's.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

You're right... How could I have missed that? This has all the marks of the widespread Meyer Malfeasance conspiracy theory. ESPN should be all over this in 3... 2... 1...

This is a very clever ploy by Nabisco to get free advertising for their Fig Newton brand.

As a kid, I ate a decent amount of Fig Newtons, 'till one day it suddenly dawned on me . . . "these things kinda suck."

Actually, they're not too bad with just the right scotch.

Then again, what isn't?

Does this means the Irish are soft...like figs?

I love fig newtons!

Clearly the company that makes those cups is the last one still operating in Michigan.  
...or should have I made an SEC joke?

Ahh Saturday's picture

Echeos, the sandwich cookie of choice for wistful Domers.  Don't forget to dip them in a nice warm cup of nostalgia.

I guess Golson was in charge of that.

"YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.

KingKosar's picture

It's gotta be a Fig Thing...
Edit:  Maybe that shoud read "It ain't nothin' but a fig thing, baby."

Clearly you have to be able to spell to join the BIG 10

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.
