The Legislative Council for the NCAA announced a few changes today. This is a fairly drastic change in policy, and a very good one. Student athletes (scholarship players and walk-ons as well) will now be able to receive a full dietary plan from their coaching staffs. In the past, athletes were allowed 3 meals as […]
The 2014 version of Notre Dame’s Blue-Gold game saw great weather, a decent crowd, and the announcement that Notre Dame will install fieldturf inside Notre Dame Stadium after this years commencement. The news is certainly not surprising given that Notre Dame just announced the Campus Crossroads project over 2 months ago, but it still has […]
The annual Notre Dame spring game has arrived and they might as well just announce that the offensive line is now made up of leprechauns and the running back group is now an angry herd of brother man-bear-pig’s. Seriously, that might have all really happened this year, and I would know for sure if I […]
Notre Dame entered the 2013 season with major question marks at running back. Both rushing leaders from 2012, Cierre Wood & Theo Riddick entered the NFL Draft, and of the three returning running backs in Amir Carlilse, Cam McDaniel, and George Atkinson III, only Atkinson had seen major playing time. There was some concern heading […]
After losing Notre Dame to Under Armour, Adidas has tracked down a buyer to clear out their warehouse of “ready to go” Notre Dame uniforms.
Notre Dame received its first defensive verbal commitment from 3 star safety, Prentice McKinney late Thursday night. The hard-hitting safety from Dallas, Texas had offers from all over country- including Michigan, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M, but chose the Irish even though he has still not visited Notre Dame. There are two things that truly stick out […]
Remember good old Mother Russia? That spirit is alive and well within Notre Dame’s version of the Kremlin, commonly known as “The Gug.” For all of my ranting and preaching against zealous analyzing of spring football… I kind of feel like a crackhead in desperate need of some product. Very little news of note has […]
Jeopardy showed a visual of the Michigan football helmet, and nobody guessed Michigan.

College football players, led by Kain Colter of Northwestern, have won an important and historical case with the National Labor Relations Board to form a union as college athletes. This is a critical step for those seeking official union recognition for college athletes. This is far from being even remotely close to being over, but […]

Finally, Joomla is going to be a distant memory- despite all of these scars. This isn’t just another nose job. We have completely changed the motor in this thing. You should find faster load times, a better mobile experience, and a cleaner feel. Plus, your Dictator for Life has a ton of new toys and […]
Friends, I had written a long and passionate article late, late into the night last night exposing the lies and the smoke and mirrors involving spring football. That article, as well as last year's epiphany, must have really pissed off the football gods. It was deleted by the drunk and fat thumb of yours truly. […]
One of the few things that I missed about not writing a "recruiting spectacular" for the 2014 class, was not being able to throw out my best guess at what jersey numbers our new freshmen will wear at Notre Dame. The freshmen (other than the early enrollees) won't officially be given their numbers until this […]
Cody Riggs, a defensive back from the University of Florida, is transferring to Notre Dame using the fifth year transfer rule that will allow Cody to be eligible for the Irish in 2014. Riggs was heavily recruited by Notre Dame while a blue chip high school player in Florida. Riggs chose the in state Gators, […]
