So what if your season is done! Who cares if Charlie Weis can't recruit and has ruined your once proud Football program! What does it matter if you lose to two Service Academies in the same year! (Sorry, I'll stop rubbing it in) All of that is of no concern because NBC is going to make you a star!
NBC Sports worked with the Film Department at Notre Dame to create a contest for students to create a commercial for this weekend's game. Students submitted scripts at the beginning of the year and three were put into production the winner has been selected and here it is for you to enjoy!
About 2 million people or so will get to see the creation at halftime, and lucky for you NBC still cares....
"From a business standpoint, it is a difficult year for us financially, because nobody truly anticipated this performance," NBC Sports president Ken Schanzer said yesterday from South Bend.Death Valley.
"We've made very clear we have every intention of trying to stay in this relationship as long as the eye can see," said Schanzer, who has two children who are Notre Dame students. "You chalk it up to the fact over a long period of time there are going to be peaks and valleys, and this is a valley."
