The college football national title game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish figures to do HUGE tv numbers. Like off the charts figures. Given the interest in South Bend for tickets, getting to the game will command a lot of money, juice, or both. The Notre Dame Ticket Office... Read more »
It’s that time of year again, when I make smart ass remarks justifying why I’m picking one college football
team to beat another. Not only do I give you the full bowl schedule with tv listings, there’s fun and goofy pictures of cheerleaders

His sister even has an alcohol offense on her recent rap sheet.... Read more »
Contrary to multiple “reports,” which were proven false (and as they were proven false, I will not dignify the source of these reports with neither a link nor a mention. Ok, it was Rivals.com Texas Longhorns site Orangebloods- yeah they’re incompetent) Notre Dame is NOT JOINING THE BIG 12. I asked Notre Dame Athletic Director... Read more »
It’s a four way battle to start at quarterback in Notre Dame, perhaps the most high profile position in all of college sports. But after upon further inspection, it’s most likely a two way competition this college football season. Last year’s starter Tommy Rees had the inside track to regain the position this year, but...

From Golden Tate to Kyle Rudolph to Michael Floyd to…Tyler Eifert. Notre Dame has seen a primary pass-catcher emerge each year and then end up a high pick in the NFL Draftfollowing a breakout season.
