Celebrating the 1947 ND Football Champs 70th Anniversary

Terry Brennan walked back out on the football field once more at the North Carolina State game to receive the 70th anniversary honors on behalf of the 1947 Notre Dame national championship football team. The crowd roared its approval. The scrappy Irishman is 90 years young now, and still epitomizes the spirit of the Fighting Irish. Incredibly, he started all four years at halfback for the team. In '47 he led the team in yardage gained from rushing and pass reception, and brought the Notre Dame stadium to a near frenzy with a 97-yard kickoff return during the Army game.

The greatness of the 1947 team cannot be understated. Two million battle hardened soldiers had just returned from WWII on the GI Bill, flooding campuses across the country. It was like every college team in the country had unlimited scholarships, with the government picking up the tab. The talent was often 14 deep for every position. And the returning soldiers were more mature and toughened by their wartime experience. Some had played on championship teams before getting drafted. Some had also played ball on the semi-pro military teams during their years in the service, and still had 2 more years of eligibility left. Clearly, this was the most unique and competitive era in college football history. Notre Dame made history by dominating in this era, winning back to back national championships and sending an astonishing 42 players to the pros from these ’46 and ‘47 teams.

On the last game of the season, No.1 ND beat No.3 USC 38-7 to clinch the title. Terry Brennan and the 1947 team are the subject of a recent documentary on DVD called The Greatest Team: Notre Dame’s Unrivaled 1946-47 Football Squads, which argues these were the greatest college teams ever fielded. More info on the amazing 1947 team is available on the Facebook page Greatest Team–Notre Dame .

Terry Brennan (see pic) went on to become head coach of the Notre Dame football team for 4 years after Frank Leahy retired.
