Another gem from John Walters today, as he points us to a letter from a Notre Dame senior student published Tuesday by the ND school newspaper, THE OBSERVER:

Senior Matthew McManus writes:
The senior class is on the brink of an achievement that has never been accomplished. Assuming (and this is a big assumption) that the football team beats Tulsa this weekend, the game against Utah will be our chance to break the record of most losses in a four-year period, previously owned by the Class of 1964.
When we get steamrolled by Utah on Nov. 13, we will officially be the losingest class in Notre Dame History.
That day will also be Senior Day, a day that the senior class is allowed on the field at the end of the game. The senior class should not walk onto the field, but storm the field in celebration of its four seasons as spectators in the student section.
The senior class should show its thanks and appreciation for a record-breaking four seasons by storming the field at the closing of the loss to Utah on Nov. 13.
At the very least, McManus should personally consumate his delightful proposal by leading the charge onto the field himself.
Though even if Notre Dame loses to the Utes and McManus goes through with it, I have good news for ND’s graduating class.
You still won’t be the biggest loser ever to set foot on the South Bend stadium’s sod.
