Questions and Responses so far:

Question is from John Mackenzie for the Notre Dame Athletic Director:
What is the history of "The Shirt"?

Answer:
The Shirt Project began in 1990 through the vision and leadership of Brennan Harvath, '91. As Chairman of AnTostal -- the Student Union Board's spring celebration -- Harvath envisioned raising money to supplement the AnTostal budget by selling a t-shirt to Notre Dame students. The Shirt, as it became known, was intended to unify the student body in Notre Dame Stadium for the home football game against Michigan on September 15, 1990. With Notre Dame and Michigan having similar team colors, Harvath's vision was for the crowd to be unified in green, symbolic of the Fighting Irish. More than 9,000 shirts were sold, and over 85% of the student body wore The Shirt to the game. In fact, sales of The Shirt 1990 generated $17,000, with a portion of the funds being allocated to each of Notre Dame's residence halls. More information on The Shirt can be found at http://theshirt.nd.edu/
