Reflections will feature excerpts from books with stories and memoirs about Notre Dame.

Reflections From The Dome will have two segments this month. First is a reprint of Sal Maiorana’s (CBS SportsLine Historian) excellent article on the ’79 Cotton Bowl for CBS SportsLine.

Secondly, there have been many stories, myths and misconceptions about the "Chicken Soup Game" and what went on in the lockerroom at halftime. Irish Legends has interviewed star players, student managers and team doctors to learn the inside story on how the team turned a rout into one of the greatest victories in Notre Dame football history.
