Pete's Log: Notre Dame 10, Michigan State 17

Entry #1118, (Sports and Athletics)
(posted when I was 23 years old.)

This game made me sad. Our offense was horrid, and our defense, though decent, allowed too many big plays. I don't know what more to say. We looked bad. At least our previous two games, Oregon State and Nebraska, we lost against teams that looked good.

At least the band is cool. The pre-game and halftime shows were fun and very patriotic. Everyone was given a printed American flag as they entered the stadium, so during the national anthem and such at the beginning of the game, everyone held the flag high. It looked cool. And for the end of the halftime show, our band and the Michigan State joined forces to play more patriotic music.

Increased security, what? Several news sources were telling us to expect heightened security as we entered the stadium, but I saw none of that. I've definitely had harder times getting into the stadium than I did today...
