Bring on that Prancing Leprechaun!

Click here to see who is on Rutgers' football schedule from 2010 through 2016 (at least).

I find it hard to imagine how big the Scarlet Knights/Fighting Irish rivalry could become. Even in their current diminished state, the Dames still have millions of followers in the New York/New Jersey area. It remains a lot easier to find someone wearing the ND than the block R around here, but it's changing fast. With a couple of more Rutgers bowl wins between now and 2010, Notre Dame fans might even find themselves outnumbered in a few (non-Irish) New Jersey bars.

I'm certainly not going to give up my season tickets for Rutgers Stadium (not that I was considering it anyway).

Bring on that prancing leprechaun!!

The average of these seven red boxes gives the Knights a combined preseason ranking of 15.42.
