I remember those previous Notre Dame games very very well...I'm part of that over 50 gang. The name Ara Parseghian leaves a sour taste in my mouth...the controversy he started when he went for the tie instead of the win against Michigan State when ND #1, M State #2 & Bama #3 made me sick/still does. Michigan State and Notre Dame had won all their games but now had a tie. We were undeafeted, but, we were still ranked #3 afterwards...they gave the NC to Notre Dame. They call that the year of the Missing Ring. That's when there was no overtime..you had to go for two to get a win instead of the tie. When Bear Bryant was asked to comment on it, he said that famous line, "A tie is like kissin' your sister!"
