Notre Dame has embraced their rivalry trophies more and more since the arrival of Brian Kelly. That's great, and for those of you that have followed this site at any time in the past 7 years, you know that I am 100% on board with the idea that these trophies (at least a few of them) should be brought to the field and celebrated.
I have lots of reasons for this, but the main one is the most important one for me, is that I just think these type of things are cool and it's one of the things that makes college football unique from the NFL, and at least in my eyes- better than the NFL.
It's frustrating to see a tweet like this from Notre Dame:

Notre Dame continues to deny bringing these trophies out on the field for the game, but they still promote it as another product of Notre Dame. Hell, they have even made a University licensed "Megaphone Trophy" shirt.
All I'm saying is… BRING THEM OUT. Let the team, the stadium, the fans- everyone share in this unique and great part of both college football and Notre Dame.
