With an upset of top-ranked Tennessee in the books and the College World Series ahead, Notre Dame returned to South Bend to prepare. But first, the Irish had to take in the local spoils that come with such an incredible victory. As soon as their bus arrived on campus, a group of supporters was on hand to welcome them. Among them were Marcus Freeman and volleyball coach Salima Rockwell:
Welcome home, fields.

It was awesome to see Link Jarrett channel his inner Mike Brey and shout, “The Irish did it!” as he stepped off the bus. If anyone deserves to reap the benefits of this amazing run, it’s him. That it hardly took him any time at all to turn the Irish into a legitimate threat cannot and must not be overlooked. Let’s hope he’s around for a long time.
Before looking to the future, however, it’s time to focus on Texas and any other opponent that comes the Irish’s way.
