Saturday was “Notre Dame Day.”
Notre Dame’s football program had a rough 2016. The Fighting Irish went 4-8. It was the South Bend, Ind. team’s first losing season since 2007.
Saturday was April 8 – 4/8.
So, naturally, the college football world was making fun of Brian Kelly’s program, celebrating “Notre Dame Day.”

Happy "Notre Dame Day" everyone! Or as Michgan State fans call it, Happy "That Could've Been Us If We Could've Upset Illinois Day."

Today is 4-8, so Notre Dame fans should spend the day reminiscing about all the wonderful memories they've made over the past year: pic.twitter.com/NvGhbrP5ac

The Fighting Irish could certainly use a bounce-back season this fall.
ESPN’s Football Power Index rankings project Notre Dame to go 8-4.
Brian Kelly’s team opens its 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Temple.
