College Football Players Show NFL What ‘Unity’ Demonstration Ought To Truly Appear Like

What's Happening

Whether it’s the Wildcat formation or the spread offense, the NFL has never ever had a problem taking a page out of college football patterns.

Possibly they need to borrow this one, too.

With college football starting in earnest this weekend, numerous eyes are going to be glued to the television to see their alma maters and favorite teams start a possible march toward bowl season.

However it’s what those eyes missed out on that might be the finest storyline to emerge so far from college football’s return.

Amidst the social and financial unrest that has actually damaged the United States in 2020, it was beyond enjoyable to see a minute of unity that wasn’t meant for the video cameras or for show:

Take a look at what NFL coaching legend and outspoken Christian Tony Dungy tweeted out Saturday:

Approximately 12:30 pm and the Notre Dame buses simply got here. It was amazing to see a number of their players and coaches pertain to midfield for a circle of prayer. pic.twitter.com/PT1uFLPtwt

Dungy, who called his very first college football game as Duke went to Notre Dame, tweeted out a candid picture of the house group’s gamers and coaches gathering midfield for prayer.

It wasn’t a big production and it definitely wasn’t a stunt with a high-powered PR machine behind it.

Simply put, it was the polar reverse of what NFL fans were subjected to prior to this week’s “Thursday Night Football” NFL season opener:

The Notre Dame football group wasn’t trying to showboat, pander or lecture.

That’s a plain contrast to the method the NFL demanded bombarding audiences with social justice messaging and programs of so-called unity.

When It Comes To Notre Dame’s actual on-field football product, expectations are reasonably high going into the season for the 10th-ranked Battling Irish. They’ll be playing in an extremely hard ACC division that includes perennial powerhouse Clemson and up-and-coming groups like North Carolina and Miami.

I’m with @miketirico at Notre Dame Stadium preparing to call my first college football video game– Duke at ND at 2:30 pm today. This is the view from our booth. Pretty extraordinary! pic.twitter.com/K7E9Ed7s5i

Despite how great Notre Dame ends up being this year, Dungy may have already seen the Battling Irish’s greatest “W” of the year thanks to the faith-driven unity the group revealed before a single second of actual football was played.
