That's my disclaimer for the review i'm about to write. Being a big college football fan and a Notre Dame fan in particular, i found this dvd to be an exceptional purchase, esp at the introductory price of $15. It is mainly a 2-hr long documentary on the history of the school's football program(produced and directed by Roger Springfield/narrated by Roy Scheider). It includes some nice modern shots of the school(for those who've never been there), has lots of interviews with people associated with the school(though some big-names never appear like Joe Montana), and lots of b&w/color highlight footage(some great stuff here including stuff from the 2005 season!!!).
Again, i'm not a Fighting Irish expert, but the info and footage seems pretty good and thorough. It goes through all the coaches but only the major ones get a recap of their tenure at Notre Dame. In other words, if you're a fan of coach Davie or Willingham, don't expect much, they're barely mentioned at all. Some things you might want to know specifically:
+ the dvd looks sharp and sounds really good off my big-screen and basic stereo hook-up(standard version/dolby surround stereo)
+ the dvd has chapter stops so you can jump to your favorite area which is good since some of the material repeats itself.(like highlights of a certain Notre Dame vs USC game can be found in 2 or 3 different chapters that pertain to it)
+ chapter stops include subjects like the ND vs USC rivalry, ND vs Army rivalry, Big Ten rivalries, classic bowl games, etc.
+ interviews are kept short, or if long, are interspersed with footage(in other words, it's not a long boring shot of the speaker. it shows who they are for a few seconds then cuts to footage/highlights to keep things interesting)
+ bonus features are:
The Marching Band
"Here Come the Irish"
Knute Rockne Speeches
coming attractions: "We Are Marshall"(an ad basically for the film)
Overall, great stuff, highly recommended. Btw, for those who were disappointed at the very brief clips of great games during the Holtz era in this documentary, be sure to check out that Notre Dame box set comin out in oct. with the full games(available for pre-order at amazon.com as well for a very cheap price).
