For those of you that haven't heard, earlier this week an enterprising student successfully arranged for about 10,000 leis to be handed out before this weekend's game, in an attempt to show Manti Te'o, the stud 5-star linebacker from Hawai'i, how much we want him to come play for us at Notre Dame.
The University got wind of this, and sent out an e-mail discouraging the students from going through with their plan. Apparently, it could possibly be construed as "publicizing" Te'o's visit, which is against NCAA rules.
However, those rules apply to the University, and not individuals.
So, I'm going out to buy some leis tonight to wear at the game on Saturday. (Where does one go to buy leis in November in South Bend?) Preferably green ones.
I encourage anyone else who is going to the game to do the same. Subway Domer claims that there will be leis available at Gate E before the game, so I encourage you to swing buy and pick yours up.
