The Prophet of Notre Dame

Michael Rodio | Nov. 27, 2012 | The Daily Domer and ABC 57 News

In his book The Gipper's Ghost, writer and Notre Dame alumnus Bob Quakenbush hails Coach Kelly for rallying the Fighting Irish football team and returning them to their winning ways by returning them to a championship in his third season.

It's not so impressive - after all, that's exactly what's happened this year.

But here's the thing: Quakenbush published The Gipper's Ghost in 1985.

Now, a story meant to inspire some fight in the Fighting Irish seems to be rife with all kinds of prophetic similarities. ABC 57 News in South Bend visited Notre Dame's campus to talk about The Gipper's Ghost with Quakenbush and learn more about this seemingly prophetic author and his story of the Notre Dame spirit.
