Mike Brey called Notre Dame “America’s team”

americas-team

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.

    eye opening news Mike- no one outside South Bend, that isn’t of The Catholic faith and the ACC fans like The Irish, the ACC and some even dislike you and your turtleneck shirt.

    Wast John Short available for comment? He is the authority on patriotism.

    Per Kenpom, their adjusted offensive efficiency is ranked 3rd, to our 6th … the disparity is their defense efficiency is 100, to our #1.

    So instead of the players giving UK locker room material, the head coach decides to do it. If I was UK, I would feel slighted by an opponent declaring themselves “America’s Team”.

    meh, it sounds just like something that Calipari would say. He’d be trying to get people to back his guys and build them up just like Brey is doing. I’ll give Brey props for a classy PR move that is MUCH better than what WVU tried to do.

    A private Catholic school’s team is not “America’s”…

    I heard the Pope is even wavering about his loyalty in this game.

      True. He’ll be wearing white for the game.

    Hold on. Are you serious? Mike Brey really said it’s Kentucky against the world? Unbelievable…. will people never learn?

    Mike Brey’s comments are disappointing to me. I thought the Kentucky Wildcats were America’s team.

    Sheeesh…and I thought what Daxter Miles said was dumb, but now I think he should just take off his jackass ears and overnight them to Coach Brey. Tag, Mike…you’re it.

    He’s right. There are more people against UK!

    Much like the Dallas Cowboys, no, you aren’t.

    UK is also one of the top ten offensive teams. ND is a bad defensive team, though they were able to defend a bit against a short WSU. Riding for a fall.

    What is Brey smoking??… Everyone has been hoping UK loses all year that is nothing new.. but ND the “American Team?” I think he is full of hot air. May the Best team win and it won’t be Notre Dame..

    Defense wins championships across most sports! I’ll take good defense over good offense any day…

    And Ted Turner called TBS America’s Station … now TBS is called “Very Funny.” People talk silly crap all the time. If America’s team is one that gets ranked highly at a higher rate than they actually achieve then maybe they are America’s team. They have never even played in the finals, only 1 final four and 6 elite 8s counting this year.
