Winning trumps all. But this is football and supposed to be fun. Why can't they mess with stuff for 1 game and have fun?Steve G You can argue Notre Dame's relevance on the field if you want, but when it comes to terrible unis it doesn't get much more relevant than ND.Tom Fornelli Look at these helmets.
