The Shirt: Quick reply

Jim Blase | Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Thanks for publishing Andrew Alea’s letter, “2012’s Shirt.” I appreciate his thoughtfulness on the issue.

As mentioned in the last two paragraphs of my original letter from Monday, it is hard to believe we can’t reach a compromise here, e.g. by utilizing all of the brilliant minds in our first-ranked business school to figure out other ways to supplement The Shirt Committee’s income, e.g. by selling sweatshirts, jackets and coats with the same lettering and design as The Shirt.

This is Notre Dame. We just have to be smart enough to figure this out. Whatever we do, let’s not just “punt” this year.

Enough said.
