Remember Catholics vs. Convicts? The 31-30 last-second classic in South Bend in 1988? Two decades have passed but the intense, bitter, intersectional battle between the Notre Dame and Miami football programs could be returning in the near future. The Miami Herald reports that the schools are in talks to renew their series in the future.
Things got hot after 1985 when the 'Canes were accused of running up the score' to the tune of 58-7. Notre Dame took its ball and ran home after 1990 but the decline of both programs and a good two decades of precious time seem to be just the ingredients necessary to revive talks about playing more games. This is great for college football if the programs can work this out.
