Dad loves it!
Kevin Tracy | Indiana | 03/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My dad is a Notre Dame alumni and actually went to a couple of these games. He really enjoys reliving those times of his college days. It's also interesting to watch football before the days of the "Yellow Line" and seemingly endless camera angles.

Anyway, my dad tends to watch these when he's flying to and from job sites or in a hotel room without an internet connection. I got them for him about 3 months ago as a Christmas present and he just finished the entire set.

I always enjoyed hearing his stories of these games, so it's really nice being able to give something back that means just as much to him."
Diehards will love it

"I bought this for my brother in law for Xmas, and it's definitely the most successful present I've ever given him. He particularly commented on the clarity of pictures for each game ("like being there") and loved that it was the whole game, not just the highlights. A winner for die hard fans out there!"
What a great compilation of classic ND games!
Joseph Stachler | 02/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is a great service to fans that the powers-that-be decided to offer this amazing box set. Some fans, if they're old enough, have only seen some of these games once when they were originally broadcast live. Even if you've caught the "chicken soup game" on ESPN Classic, now you can see it in its entirety and commercial-free. And of course there's the legendary "green jersey game" which probably had the most fanfare and energy of any regular season college football game in history.

From the Lou Holtz era, the two exciting defeats of Miami and Florida State remain at the top of the Fighting Irish's greatest games ever (my only beef with the FSU game is that the great intro by Bob Costas is not included).

In addition to the entire games, many DVDs have extras such as recorded radio broadcasts and pre- and post-game interviews. Easy navigation with chapter indexes placed at the start of scoring drives.

I hope there are plans to make a second boxed set. I myself would love to see the 1973 Sugar Bowl against Alabama, the 1991 Sugar Bowl against Florida, the 1982 game against Pitt, and even some old black & white filmed games such as the 1957 Oklahoma upset."
Great Historic ND games
T. McElhenny | Ohio | 01/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My brother in law got this for Christmas and we watched a few games. No commercials to skip thru, the original broadcasts are great. A good deal for a handful of big games in recent ND football history. The rosters for each game are a nice feature. A very good buy."
