Despite impressive attempts by a few of you to suck the joy out of the bet (and the actual hire), we have a clear winner to the ‘Who Gets to Be The Next Notre Dame Whipping Boy’ prediction game:
Messrs. Cincotta & Flaherty, who not only got The Guy right but nailed the date – as measured by the initially stated PR Announcement criteria.
It should be noted that Sully missed it by ‘that much’… not that anyone cares or will remember. History is written by the winners, after all.
While no legal tender will be changing hands as a result of their otherwise useless skill here, Jay & Jerry will receive, in the immortal words of Carl Spackler, total consciousness on their deathbeds.
So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.
Congratulations! Start planning your autumn travels now. Hope springs eternal.

Note that I’ve already crossed off today.
