Re: "Notre Dame President Stands Firm Amid Shifts in College Football":
I hate pro football. I'm almost done with college football

In 1899, the team went 12–0, outscoring opponents 322 to 10, and won the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association title. Known as the "Iron Men," with just 13 men they had a six-day road trip with five shutout wins over Texas A&M; Texas; Tulane; LSU; and Ole Miss. It is recalled memorably with the phrase "...and on the seventh day they rested."[1][2] Grantland Rice called them "the most durable football team I ever saw."[3]

The 11 extra points against Cumberland by B. U. Sims is still a school record. The offense was led by Diddy Seibels; the defense byOrmond Simkins. Ormond was the son ofWilliam Stewart Simkins, who may have fired the first shot of the American Civil War. John Heisman's Auburn team was the only one to score on Sewanee.
