Steven C. Welsh
When he was a Notre Dame student, Steve lived through two losing seasons, a coaching change, listening to games overseas on Armed Forces Radio, and watching the Fighting Irish win what was most likely the most recent definitive consensus national championship by any team. It was during Steve's senior year that the Notre Dame team which had losing records his first two years played and beat essentially the entire top six.
The Irish had gone 5-6, 5-6 with a new coach, 8-4 with a blowout loss in a bowl, then 12-0 and a bowl victory that was one of the games that helped the Fiesta Bowl become a major bowl.
Steven C. Welsh is a Notre Dame alumnus dividing his time between the Washington, D.C., area and the Midwest.Steve has background as a Notre Dame football commentator, national security analyst, attorney, and web developer.
Have times changed in the interim?
Steve was surprised to learn that, for at least some recent graduates, there is some confusion about the monumental sculpture of Moses by Ivan Mestrovic that stands next to Hesburgh Memorial Library, in which Moses is pointing his forefinger forcefully towards the sky. Apparently for some, that sculpture is now known as "First Down Moses."
In fact, the sculpture has always been, and always will be, known as "We're #1 Moses."
