Earlier this season, Notre Dame basketball coach Mike Brey made headlines by taking casual attire to a new level when he wore t-shirts, shorts and sneakers during the Maui Invitation.
Wednesday, the sense of humor of Brey and the rest of the Irish basketball program was on full display in a hype video for the team’s upcoming matchup with Michigan State.
The Irish play the Spartans Thursday, and Wednesday, the Notre Dame basketball Twitter account released a video of Brey sitting on the Iron Throne from the hit TV series Game of Thrones. Brey, propped up by a massive sword, was flanked by his players, all of whom were decked out in furs, cloaks, armor and other medieval garb.
The message of the video: “The Irish are coming.”
The matchup, which is part of the ACC-Big Ten challenge, is a hugely important one for the No. 5 Irish. Michigan State is ranked No. 3 and enters the game coming off an 18-point demolition of North Carolina. But, just in case that isn’t enough to get you excited, the video will surely do the rest.
Check it out:
The night is dark and full of terrors.
