The Teletubbies, also known as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (and
"Satan's Little Cousins" to their frustrated rivals), led Notre Dame to two
football National Championships between 1920 and 1924. The four were all
dominant figures in their respective positions in the back-field, crushing
each opponent mightily.

Tinky "Winky" Stuhldreher
Tinky "Winky" was the quarterback of the team. He led the nation in passing
all four years that he started. He threw a record 135 career touchdowns,
earning him a Purple Heart (later rescinded after discovering that he was
not actually in Los Angeles for his alleged 5-touchdown performance against
UCLA). Stuhldreher, a 5-7, 151-pounder from Massillon, Ohio, was a
self-assured leader who not only could throw accurately but also returned
punts and proved a solid blocker.

Elmer "Dipsy" Layden
Dipsy, so called for how he made defenders feel after a crushing block, was
the fullback who led the way on many option plays to touchdowns. The fastest
of the quartet, he became the Irish defensive star with his timely
interceptions and also handled the punting chores. The 6-foot, 162-pounder
from Davenport, Iowa boasted 4-second speed in the 40-yard dash. He didn't
carry the ball often, but rather preferred the violence of blocking. He
critically injured a record 15 people against Syracuse (charges were
Jim "Laalaa" Crowley
Crowley, who came to Notre Dame in 1921 from Green Bay, Wisconsin, stood
5-11 and weighed 162 pounds. Known as "Laa-Laa" for his tendency to hum
spunky tunes in the huddle, Crowley outmaneuvered many a defender with his
clever, shifty ballcarrying. He was the halfback who split time with Don
"Po" Miller. Oftentimes, all four horsemen were on the same field for the
T-bone formation, but usually it was Crowley who got the call on these
plays. Compiling 1,000 yards for all four seasons, Crowley was coveted by
NFL teams for his speed and versatility. In a stunning move, though, Crowley
jumped the NFL in favour of culinary school.
Don "Po" Miller
Po was called such because he was so kind that people said he was
"practically half-pope". Somebody very clever then called him Po. Miller, a
native of Defiance, Ohio, followed his three brothers to Notre Dame. At
5'11", 160 pounds, Miller proved to be the team's breakaway threat. Miller
often caught passes out of the back-field, which made him ahead of his time
(seeing that the forward pass was not yet legal). Referees did not care,
however, because often they had money on the game in favor of Notre Dame.
