If you would like to learn a bit about Tom Colton’s background, why he loves football, the University of Notre Dame and its Fighting Irish team, you are invited to go to the About page. For a brief background and history of University football, you can read it up on the History page. And for everything about the football team, the Blog page is where you’ll want to go.
To get things started, here’s a brief rundown of the University’s achievements over the years:
- 11 national championships – three pre-major poll era (1924, 1929, and 1930) and eight post-major poll era (1943, 1946, 1947, 1949, 1966, 1973, 1977, and 1988)
- 715 appearances in wire service press poll – Associated Press
- 4-time Grantland Rice Trophy recipient – team award (1964, 1973, 1977, and 1988)
- Joe Moore Award – team award (2017)
- Most players drafted in the NFL (as of 2014) compared to any other football program in the U.S.
- NCAA record-holder for having the most number of wins against one opponent (US Naval Academy) – a record 43 consecutive wins until their defeat in 2007
The above records aren’t even half of what the University has achieved in football, shares Tom Colton. But these should give you an idea of why Tom thinks they are the best college football team in the country. On top of these, the University’s Catholic Irish values and traditions instilled in every student, faculty, and staff is what makes the University the best one in the country, at least for Tom Colton.
