It really is a small world after all, even at Mormon devotionals in mid-western Indiana.
The BYU football team gave its traditional pre-game fireside message Friday at a packed house that included Notre Dame football legend Rudy Ruettiger and former BYU basketball coach Steve Cleveland.
Ruettiger attended with his friend and Latter-day Saint Bishop Randy Garn, and told The Universe he was looking forward to seeing the Fighting Irish and Cougars play more often over the next several years.
BYU football players Bronson Kaufusi and Skye Povey talk with Notre Dame legend Rudy Ruettiger at the teams traditional pre-game fireside Friday.
Its starting to become a good tradition, Ruettiger said, noting that -several scenes from Rudy, the film memorializing his efforts to play for Notre Dame, were filmed during the the two teams contest in 1992.
Ruettiger, one of the most iconic figures in college sports, said he appreciates the way the Cougars represent the university.
I was impressed with the coaches and with the players and with how they interact with each other, Reuttiger said. Im impressed with where the foundation is.
The coach really has a good thing going.

Why is this in the religion forum?
It’s sports news.
I made the mistake of watching the LOTR movies first, which meant I sat through all of Rudy thinking that Sam Gamgee was the main character.

Ironically, LDS devotionals are not allowed on FR, however, posting articles about them are.
I think the main game was, yes. Rudy was apparently referring to some of the other scenes in the film.
To a number of Freepers, football is a religion.
Sam: “I wonder if we’ll ever be put into songs or tales, Frodo?”
Frodo: “Why yes, Rudy, they already made a movie about you, let it go already before they put Orcs on the offensive line!”
LOL. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t shake it.
They also invited Manti Te’o’s girlfriend, but no one saw her.
I understand that, this thread is resulting from a news story, that’s why I asked.
Rudy, Rudy, Rudy
BYU is one of he dirtiest teams in football.
