Make It Happen Alabama, Notre Dame and USC

I've talked about the "Holy Trinity" of Alabama, Notre Dame and USC before.

In my ideal world, all three schools would play frequent or annual round-robin games.  These stories gives me hope.

"I'd like to play Notre Dame," Saban said after a speech to a packed room of members of the Rotary Club of Birmingham. "We played them three times at Michigan State and beat them three times. That was a great national game, it creates fan interest and TV will always jump on those games."

- Lakeland Ledger 

USC and Notre Dame already square off annually in college football's greatest intersectional rivalry.  Now we just need Notre Dame to play Alabama and USC to play Alabama and make history.

USC and Alabama have played seven times ('38, '46, '70, '71, '77, '78, '85), with Alabama winning five.

Notre Dame and Alabama have played six times ('73, '75, '76, '80, '86, '87) with the Irish winning five.

USC and Notre Dame have played 78 times (every season from 1926 to the present excluding war years 1943 to 1945) with the Irish winning 42 along with five ties.

As you can see we've come close to that round-robin several times, most prominently in the 1970's and 1980's.  It's time for a serious go at it as all three program appear to be simultaneously headed in the right direction for the first time in the era of scholarship limits.
