Kelly Announces New Staff, Spring Game Set

One of the most Notre Damey things to do, is to take forever to announce any new hire of any type. Yes, this goes back to the George O’Leary fiasco. So, today Notre Dame finally let the world know what the world already knew- Mike Stanford, Autry Denson, Todd Lyght, and Keith Gilmore are the […]

As for that back door move… Bob Elliot will move into an administrative role at Notre Dame. So, will the staff look like for […]

Avery Sebastian Transfers To Notre Dame, Irish Are Heavily Oversigned

At his National Signing Day presser, Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly spoke about some of the rumors of possible 5th year transfers into Notre Dame. Although he didn’t provide any names, almost anyone with a pulse knew he was talking about Cal safety, Avery Sebastian. It never seemed as if it was a question […]

Poll Perception Deception

One of the more annoying aspects of living through a college football offseason, is the top 25 lists pandered around to fanbases everywhere that are starving for college football. While these sins aren’t exclusive to the mainstream media, theirs are the most grievous because they appear to be the most lazy. Take Mark Schlabach’s “Way-Too-Early […]

Coaching Overhaul Underway At Notre Dame

There was an extraordinary amount of chatter across the message boards and social media during the second half of the season- as well as a large portion of the time leading up to the bowl game, that Brian Kelly should be fired as the head coach of the Notre Dame football team. Once it proved […]

UPDATE: Brady Hoke To Join Notre Dame Coaching Staff Not Happening

It looks like Notre Dame has filled an opening on the football coaching staff with former Michigan head coach, Brady Hoke. This is BEYOND unexpected at this moment, and is one of the more strange National Signing Day happenings I have ever seen. Oh my y’all. AND THEN THIS COMES ALONG AND TOTALLY CHANGES THE […]

Notre Dame Coaching Upheaval

The news broke suddenly and spread very quickly. Notre Dame will have a coaching staff change in 2015. Perhaps it should have been expected that the staff would get jumbled up a bit, but having it happen right before National Signing Day makes it a little more panicky for everyone involved. Some may say that […]

Top 10 Recruits Of The Brian Kelly Era

With National Signing Day just around the corner, and the sixth Brian Kelly-signed recruiting class for Notre Dame ready to become official, I thought it would be a good time to take a small look at some of the best signings in the Kelly era. One caveat… This “Top 10″ list is broke down into […]

A Good Week For The Irish

How’s that for some Sunday night basketball? If you opted to watch the Pro Bowl, or anything else for that matter, you missed a thriller. Oh and by the way, there was another game this week, one that I’ve only now had the opportunity to watch and analyze. Before I get in to the gutsy, […]

Leaving Notre Dame

With National Signing Day just a few weeks away, I can’t help but think about the past recruiting classes for Notre Dame. So much is made at this time of year about decommitments and snipe hunting and being left all alone at the alter- it is easy to forget about some names that disappear after […]

Irish Surge And Beat Miami 75-70

The Irish took on a dangerous Miami team that came to South Bend at 3-1 against ranked teams on the year (12-4 overall), fresh off of a 90-74 win at Duke. After watching Duke run out to a 20-point lead before winning at Louisville on ESPN while waiting for tipoff, the danger of this Miami […]

Reinventing The Irish On The Fly… Again

The news that broke earlier this week regarding Zach Auguste, academics, and his subsequent absence seemed like an unfortunate blow that could potentially derail a promising season for Notre Dame basketball. Knee-jerk reactions ranged from groans of “not again” (that was me) to, my favorite, a tweet of acceptance that simply read, “Notre Dame expects […]
