So Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly is coming to Huntsville tomorrow morning. He’ll be speaking to the Notre Dame Club of Huntsville and it doesn’t look like just anybody can show up.
But this brings up an interesting topic that’s perplexed me for the past two years. Anytime I’d be in a bar/restaurant when the Irish were playing on TV, there was a strong anti-Notre Dame sentiment in the air. I’d ask people what the beef was, but never got a real good answer.
I know the two used to play each other a few generations ago, but there seemed to be a strong mutual respect for Penn State after the two renewed the inter-regional rivalry last year.
