Yes, Batz, he was an All-American linebacker who led Notre Dame to an unexpected undefeated season and a place in the BCS national championship game. He had dedicated the season to the memory of his grandmother and this "girlfriend" who both passed away early in the season. A huge on-campus pep rally was held to honor him and his "selfless" commitment to remain with the team despite the "twin" tragedies.

This was all stuff legends are made of...now it seems it was quite a bit less.
