Bruton, Crum say team chemistry high for Irish

"No matter what happens this year, this team is going to have each others back."

Those were the words of Irish captain and middle linebacker Maurice Crum on Thursday.

After a disastrous 2007, Crum feels the Irish have come together greatly in the off-season and will be ready Saturday when Notre Dame opens up the 2008 year against San Diego State at the Stadium.

"The offense, the defense and the special teams----everyone is in this together," Crum explained.

Fellow captain David Bruton agrees, "This team has shown a lot of camaraderie, a lot of unity and there's not really a split between offense and defense."

"It's one team---It's the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. I believe that will be showcased Saturday and in games to come and it will get stronger and stronger throughout the season."
