As Notre Dame got stomped by Navy (again), one sees with how much intensity Navy plays.
Notre Dame used to play with a chip on its shoulder; as though something set it apart from everybody else.
You don't suppose that as Notre Dame has whittled off the edges of its Catholic faith and morals, the intensity it once possessed - what made Notre Dame distinct, different, set apart - has dwindled on the playing field, do you?
They LOOK big, strong, well-fed, and well-funded. Too bad looks don't translate into wins.
