Though the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are one of the most popular teams in college football, both to those that go to the school and those that don't, some people still aren't aware of where they get their team name. The Fighting Irish name comes from the immigrant soldiers from Ireland who fought in the Civil War, though the exact time that the nickname was born is not completely clear. There are two possible accounts that seem to prevail, one of which includes a player yelling at his Irish teammates in 1909 that they were not fighting worth a lick. Another account is based on an earlier event in which Notre Dame was playing against the Northwestern Wildcats. The story goes that the fans on the opposing side started chanting to, "Kill the Fighting Irish."



Either way, the name is one that is famous and lives on in the hearts and souls of all the athletic teams at the University. The football team however, is notable on it's own, with 11 National Championships, the most of any sport at the University. The team, which is currently coached by Brian Kelly, has had a rough streak of losing at the bowl games they have played in, which is in stark contrast to their usual tendency to win that they have enjoyed since 1925. Since 1995, they have lost 9 straight bowls but that was broken in 2008 with their victory over Hawaii.

As for the upcoming season, the Fighting Irish are definitely ones to watch. Their tight end, junior Kyle Rudolph and their wide receiver, junior Michael Floyed, have been chosen to be a part of the 2010 preseason All-Americans. Kyle Rudolph has made 62 receptions for a total of 704 yards and a 5 touchdowns so far, and has started in all but one game. Michael Floyd averages just over 84 yards each game and has made 15 touchdowns in his time with Notre Dame.

The Fighting Irish bring a rich addition to college football and are definitely going to do big things in 2010. Keep your eyes on Kyle Rudolph and Michael Floyd, as a lot is expected out of them.
