In a recent post I stated that ND was not going to allow students to wear lei's in support of a visiting recruit by providing a letter sent by the University.
They had to write it. The lei's are still on. The NCAA can't do anything about it if ND doesn't sanction the event.
If you are going to the game, I think you will be able to find them at Gate E, or bring your own.
This could be a great show of support. 10,000 + wearing lei's for a football game in the middle of November in South Bend. It's just too bad that there is not a forecast of snow for Saturday. How cool would that look?! I'm starting to regret turning down tickets 4 different times for the game. If you go, send me some pics and I will post them here.
