If there is any dishonesty on the part of Notre Dame in this Manti affair, it would not be the first time I believe Notre Dame has fibbed. You all know the story of a dying George Gipp telling Knute Rockne to "Win one for the Gipper." I personally think this may not have happened. Instead, I believe Rockne lifted it from someone else saying "Tell the team to BEAR DOWN." That's right, I think John "Button" Salmon is ultimately responsible for "Win one for the Gipper." On their was to play USC in 1926 (IIRC), Notre Dame went to L.A. by train and visited Tucson. They worked out at Arizona Stadium. I think it was there that Rockne heard the story of Salmon and saved it for the appropriate time.
