SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Sorry for not partying. The players on the most visible team in college football went another Saturday without a loss and then proceeded to act like they had been there before. Even if they haven't. Which is an encouraging sign if you're a Notre Dame fan following the Irish's 17-14 victory over BYU. The breaks of the game were tipping more toward the familiarity of the previous few years here, and the aftermath in the locker room was not exactly far off.
