Notre Dame QB Derby Part 2: Dayne Crist and Andrew Hendrix

During one of his banner seasons leading the Cincinnati Bearcats, current Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly played two QBs. This fall in South Bend, it could happen again. Maybe. Dayne Crist is the projected starter, with Tommy Rees number two as of today, but the depth chart isn’t set in stone, or anything like that,... Read more »

Notre Dame Football, Basketball Notes and Nuggets

Interesting that Irish men’s basketball coach Mike Brey, late in his Saturday night post-game remarks following his team’s win over Marquette, said exactly what he planned to do Monday night in terms of using the “burn” offense against Pittsburgh. Then ND went out and executed it to near perfection. They did it without second-leading scorer... Read more »

Experience and Depth Propel Notre Dame to top 15 Ranking

There may be a “Ewing Theory” at work in South Bend.

Half the Nation will get to see Notre Dame vs. USC

Don’t you love rivalry weekend? Or more specifically, rivalry weekends in college football? I think it’s genius marketing that they have almost every team play their bitter rival on the last weekend of the year. Last Saturday, we had Northwestern versus the Illini in the Wrigleyville Classic, Stanford-Cal in “the Big Game” and more. This... Read more »

Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh: Brutally Honest Game Preview

With three of their first four against ranked teams, Notre Dame had their “echoes woken up” on them right off the bat. But at least they had some desert last week in the form of rival Boston College. Having a 2-3 record after consuming the meat and potatoes of their schedule isn’t catastrophic. But now... Read more »
