Such ND favorites as Lou Holtz, Mike Brey, Muffet McGraw, Fathers Malloy and Jenkins, John Huarte and many more. "It is priceless. It is a special book, and will be prized by many. It is a book the entire alumni should have." — Robert Dillenschneider, class of '65 The Cemetery Beneath The Golden Dome: A historic look at Cedar Grove, the cemetery on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The foreword is by the late Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, one of his last forewords.

On Oct. 4, ESPN announced three new "30 for 30" series, including one with particular interest to Notre Dame. "Catholics vs. Convicts," a documen- tary about the epic 1988 Notre Dame- Miami game, will be broadcast on Dec. 10 at 9 p.m. on ESPN following the presentation of the Heisman Trophy that will be telecast by the network. It will tell the story of the game be- tween the No. 4-ranked Fighting Irish and the No. 1-ranked Hurricanes, with one coaching star, Notre Dame's Lou Holtz, against another, Jimmy Johnson of the defending national champs and the recognized "bad boys" of college football. The 31-30 victory by Notre Dame in what many consider the greatest game in Notre Dame Stadium's 86- year history propelled the Fighting Irish to their most recent national title. The Hurricanes had crushed the Irish 133-20 in the previous four meetings from 1983-87. Holtz famously has noted that the Catholics vs. Convicts designation for that game was not accurate. "Not all of our players were Catho- lic," Holtz quipped. It is directed and narrated by Patrick Creadon. "He explores the deeper narrative as a Notre Dame senior at the time, a close friend to the young men in the middle of the 'Catholics vs. Con- victs' controversy [Joe Fredrick and Pat Walsh] and a fellow classmate of the player behind center for the Fight- ing Irish [quarterback Tony Rice]," the ESPN release stated. — Lou Somogyi Catholics Vs. Convicts: ESPN's Latest 30 For 30 Right after the Dec. 10 Heisman Trophy presentation, ESPN will debut one of its new "30 For 30" series with the story of the 1988 Notre Dame-Miami showdown.
