    We all (sort of) know the line: "the pride and tradition of the colorado buffaloes will not be left to the timid or the weak," right? Well has anyone else seen the ESPN teasers for the notre dame-oklahoma game? They have one guy for the irish saying this same thing but switching out "colorado buffaloes" for "the irish."

    So the question becomes, who had the slogan first? is our "tradition" really just a straight-up rip-off of notre dame's?

    If Notre dame was the originator, they would have trademarked it along time ago.

    Brian Kelly said it was put up the day he started there. Texas, Cal, and UW also have versions in their sports complexes. I dont remember where Mac got it from.

    ND also tries to claim the "Play Like a Champion Today" as original to them.

    Many attribute this saying as originating from Eisenhower in his first inaugural address on January 20, 1953.

    "We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose."
