September 21, 2012 - The Michigan Pep Rally

The impressive win over then #10 Michigan State vaulted Notre Dame to #11 in the rankings. On the eve of the Michigan game, the customary pep rally took place in front of Hesburgh Library. There would be two very memorable highlights from the evening.

The entire week leading up to the game, an internet campaign quickly spread. Fans, alumni, and students were all busy buying every available lei on the mainland and ordering authentic leis direct from Hawai'i throughout the week. Businesses were donating leis by the thousands. As each student arrived at the pep rally, they were given a lei. The student body stood as one, hands outstretched displaying the number five, and silently honored their fellow student. Unplanned, Brian Kelly gave Manti the microphone and Manti thanked everyone. Loved everyone. And finally realized why he was meant to choose Notre Dame.

The first moment above is obviously a great display of the character present at Notre Dame amongst the entire student body. The second event, equally as inspirational, would be the rallying cry for the defense the rest of the year. Prince Shembo had his bike seat stolen recently and was convinced Michigan stole his bike seat. He would be determined to get it back and tear apart anyone that he thought might have it.
