One less lonely Class of 2011

Charlie Nejedly | Thursday, January 20, 2011

Thank you, Notre Dame football, for making everyone forget that the Class of 2011 is the losingest class in the program’s history. It has not felt that way for the past two months. We saw an unbeaten November, which included our first win over USC since 2001, and a dominant win over Miami in the Sun Bowl. The last Notre Dame class to see two wins in bowl games? That would be the Class of 1996.

Congrats to the Class of 2011. Thanks to our football team, we’re going out as winners. So enjoy every minute of our last semester. As Billy Madison once advised a young, chubby student, “For the love of God, cherish it!”

In the words of another lover of higher education, Asher Roth, “Do I really have to graduate? Or can I just stay here for the rest of my life?”
