It’s nearly impossible to put a numeric value behind but there is no doubt in my mind that the roughly 300 former Notre Dame players on campus this past weekend can only mean good things for the future of the football program. When you preach what you sell instead of simply just selling it, it becomes authentic and seemingly will have that much greater of an impact.
From simply a fan perspective it was fun to see so many former players back on campus this past weekend. Whether it means more wins for the football program in the months and years ahead can’t be proven but you can’t argue that it wasn’t at the very least, cool.
New Notre Dame running backs coach Deland McCullough had a bit of that fandom show out as he got to meet one of his favorite players from yesteryear as well.
How can you look at that picture and not be happy? The Rocket‘s eyes are as wide as they probably were after Bo Schembechler decided to kick to him again back in 1989.
In case you were wondering, McCullugh ran for 4,368 yards in his four years as a running back at Miami (Ohio) and totaled 37 touchdowns in that time, all while wearing the number 25.
