Overview

The University of Notre Dame boasts the most storied college football program in history. Whether you're an avid Fighting Irish fan or you simply appreciate the team's traditions, the stories, photos, and memorabilia contained in Notre Dame Football: Yesterday & Today will have you cheering the exploits of a school that has an unmatched number of national championships and Heisman Trophy winners. Follow Notre Dame's incredible history, from its first game in 1887 all the way to the rise of star quarterback Jimmy Clausen.

Here's a sampling of what you'll find in Notre Dame Football: Yesterday & Today:

? Remembrances of the legendary "Four Horsemen" -- Harry Stuhldreher, Don Miller, Jim Crowley, and Elmer Layden - whose speed and finesse led the 1924 team to a 10-0 record and Notre Dame's first national championship
? The tale of George Gipp, the halfback, quarterback, and punter who was immortalized by Ronald Reagan in the movie Knute Rockne, All American
? Accounts of the many amazing games in the oldest and greatest rivalry in college football: Notre Dame vs. USC
? The story of the ultimate underdog, Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger, the 5'6" walk-on player whose improbable sack of Georgia Tech's quarterback made him a Fighting Irish hero
? A stirring description of Notre Dame's national championship in 1988, the freshman season for star wide receiver Raghib "Rocket" Ismail

Former Fighting Irish coach Lou Holtz writes the foreword and sums up Notre Dame Football: Yesterday & Today perfectly with these words: "This book is long overdue. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I have because it chronicles the history, tradition, and mystique of Notre Dame football from an insider's point of view."
