RUN THE FOOTBALL: a Fighting Irish Preview poem
A steamrolling line of seasoned steel
With backs "o’plenty" superb in skill.
When combined opponents are terrorized
A run game as good as advertised.
Kyren! C’Bo! Jafar and Tyree!
Graceful hardnosed speed all agree.
Feed them the ball good things will occur
Irish to the end zone in a blur.
Onward Liam, Patterson, Kraemer, Hainsey and Banks!
Paving the way like a phalanx of tanks.
Skill and experience imposing their will
Makes Fighting Irish gameday a brutal thrill.
A team Identity now obtained
A ground game has been unchained.
Tommy Rees dials up the plays
Coaches Taylor and Quinn also deserve praise.
2020 it's a season so strange
Covid-19 and everything a change.
But one thing for sure on the campus at Notre Dame
Running the football is a sure path to fame.
