Rivalry Renewed

Marquette and Notre Dame have played 105 times over the years. Thanks to the expanded Big East, this rivalry will be re-energized with a home-and-home series........just as it should be.

MU and ND have played any number of memorable games, highlighted (from an MU perspective) by Doc's miraculous haflcourt shot to seal a 54-52 win in 1981. Don't forget to visit the ND blog, The Blue-Gray Sky, as well (its also in the sidebar).

In addition to reflecting on the MU/ND rivalry, Todd Rosiak looks at other rivalries that could emerge in the new league. Anybody think that Pittsburgh would like to draw even with MU sometime soon?
