Brian Kelly finally announced who would be Notre Dame's captains for the 2012 season:

This is after a season where the irish only had one fulltime captain in Harrison Smith. The obvious mix of two offensive and two defensive players is obvious, but I think in this case it is dead on. Hopefully this means that a team that seemed desperate, at times, for leadership in 2011, now has four big time leaders stepping up to the table.
With all of the offseason issues and the tough road ahead, the Irish will have to be able to lean on these four players for guidance and strength throughout the season. I am well pleased.
