USC-Notre Dame Stories


Bill Stern was a nationally known radio broadcaster in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. I am skeptical if these stories about 1931 and 1938 USC-Notre Dame games are true, but Stern made them interesting. Listen to the first few minutes.

          • usc fan

            I have heard nothing either. A friend of mine saw him today too. He was told by someone that JDR is new coach? So must becoming soon I’m guessing

          • USCDAN1986

            JDR is HC in waiting .. I was told a few days ago that JDR is working directly under Swann.. Many rumors, titles etc.. I see JDR as the teams ‘GM’. and while Helton is still employed at USC reports to JDR.

          • usc fan

            I was told by a player last week that they will habe a new HC after signing period. I wonder if that JDR then?

    Bill Stern was the first one to call the Rose Bowl, “The Granddaddy of them all”. He coined that phrase during the 1939 Rose Bowl between USC and Duke. Stern was one of the best!

    • GABBY702

      My sources tell me Keith Jackson coined the Rose Bowl phrase…… just saying

      • Knight7

        Keith Jackson was 10 years old when Bill Stern coined the phrase on January 2nd 1939.

        • GABBY702

          Keith Jackson is credited with the phrase

          mr. Jackson recently passed away and it was mentioned in numerous news columns throughout the country

    Since we’re on the subject of Notre Dame football. Knute Rockne was 5′-8″ and weight 145 pounds when he played football at Notre Dame University. He died in a airplane crash in 1931 at the young age of 43.

    Is Bill Stern available to do USC basketball games on ESPN?

  • ItsAllAboutTheBall

    10:30 PM Eastern Time? I guess East Coast Bias existed back in the 1930’s as well.

    • Sas

      I’m still waiting for the USC/Oregon basketball “report”
