The Four Horsemen of Notre Dame – Strength Magazine – March, 1925

Not so very long ago the above title would have elicited no interest. When the football season of 1924 closed, every follower of the national collegiate game of football knew exactly what it meant. Grantland Rice, the dean of inventors of phrases and titles and adjectives in the Sport World, certainly gave that world a classic when he turned loose the Ibanezed biblical expression upon the sport-loving American public. It is a far cry from the Apocalypse of St. John to the sporting sections of American newspapers, but in this age of jazz and crossword puzzles nothing is impossible.
