Games at Notre Dame Stadium are open to the general public once again. While students were allowed to attend games last year, it just didn’t feel complete at all. Even after they flooded to field to celebrate the Irish’s upset of Clemson, there was something missing with so few people allowed inside. Things look more normal now, so the stadium was rocking as the Irish made their first home entrance of 2021:
Isn’t that beautiful? It’s true that the stadium isn’t completely filled, but that day surely will come again, and maybe sooner than we think. For the moment, simply having the game-day experience we all have gotten used to over the years is a win by itself. This entrance and the roar of the crowd it caused reflects that.
There’s no doubt Toledo heard the tunnel shake before it made its own entrance. The crowd makes that happen. Here’s to the first of many memories to come at Notre Dame Stadium this season.
