Mike Brey stood in front of a room full of people with bald spots and notepads and said the Fighting Irish will have the entire country behind them tomorrow against Kentucky.
“We are America’s team tomorrow,” Brey told reporters. “There’s no question about it. Got some great texts. And we love it, we certainly will take all that support. We’ve got a monumental challenge on our hands.”
Brey said playing in the ACC, the best conference in America, prepared his team for the Wildcats.
“We’re the most efficient offensive team in the country. They’re the best defensive team in the country. I think it’s exciting to see how this thing plays out over 40 minutes.”
I know one nation that will be rooting against Brey’s team: the Big Blue Nation.
Let’s go Cats.
