I am of the belief that as much as BK panders the fans to make noise, a video board playing highlights, replays, big hits, great offensive plays would be the ideal way to pump enthusiasm through the crowds. Honestly, ND stadium should be one of the loudest stadiums in college football, visiting teams should be afraid. Hell, I get pumped watching those pump up videos on youttube. Play a bunch of those before the game, between quarters and after the band at halftime. Just my thoughts.

It's about player and fan experience.It's not as if ND stadium is some classic place like Wrigley or Fenway. In other words, it's not special architecturally or at least it's not anymore if it ever was.It's special because of the play on the field and the way it's positioned on campus. Nobody wants to tear it down, just improve it.Modern football requires modern amenities and Notre Dame can make that work while retaining an old school, traditional stadium atmosphere.

For everyone complaining about the lack of noise at the stadium, Bama could win in our stadium. Bama could win playing in a morgue. Same goes for FSU and Auburn. Fourth and nine vs USC was as loud as I have ever heard the stadium and we still failed to make the play and we still lost. I doubt that the crowd noise is overwhelming when Bama plays NW Eastern Georgia A&M State Polytech School For The Tall. If some fans want so desperately to be entertained by a Jumbo, that tells me the product on the field is lacking in some way. I'm sure Rockne would want a Jumbo and if that would put an end to the always witty grandpa jokes, then I am for it also. With TR gone and turf on the way, all we need is a Jumbo and there shouldn't be anymore complaining about anything. It's a win, win.
