The 2009 Subway Domer Awards

The ballots are in, and it is time to announce the winners of this years Subway Domer Awards. Last years awards were the first, and already there has been a slight change to the format. Another trophy / category was added; QB. As presumptuous as it is most years, the top QB should still be […]

Tales From the “Dead Period”

The holidays can be scary.  Anytime families come together, the information that flows forth can bring terror: “Did Dad tell you about Grandma’s new colostomy bag?”, “Oh good, Uncle Harvey brought pictures of his trip to Hedonism!”, “Your cousin Stacey finally got her first acting job – it’s a film called ‘Bukakke Nights’.”  You get the […]

The Return of the Te’o

Manti Te’o will return to Notre Dame next season per Steve Wiltfong of Irish Sports Daily. Te’o was considering temporarily leaving Notre Dame to take a Mormon mission. Word.

Recruiting Refresher: Christmas Eve Edition

As The Subway Domer awakes from a week and a half hibernation (man, I really wish I was just sleeping that entire time), I figured it was time for another Recruiting Refresher to be published. This Fighting Irish class of 2010 has been very volatile. After a coaching change- especially as one as deep as the […]

Consensus All-American: Golden Tate

Golden Tate was absolutely amazing in 2009. So amazing, he is now a Consensus All-American. 2009 was as magical a year for Tate statistically, as it was frustrating for both the team and the fans alike. Was Golden Tate the best wide receiver to ever play under the Golden Dome? That question is certainly debatable, […]

The Subway Domer Bowlagna

Welcome to “That time of the year.” I love it… Bowl season. Now, I realize some of you strongly disagree with my assertion that Notre Dame should have went bowling- even if it was the Windex / Bowl. That’s OK. I’m sure Brian Kelly wouldn’t want 15 practices to learn what type of personnel […]

The Brian Kelly Files

In the end, Notre Dame got their man. After a seemingly interminable period of consternation for Irish fans, a new coach will finally be making his way to South Bend. At the moment, Brian Kelly is the hot up-and-comer in the coaching ranks. After making his coaching bones at FCS school, Grand Valley State; Kelly […]

That Just Happened

Subway Domer will have more on the Kelly hire and the state of the program in these next few weeks- but let’s face it… we got some time. Until then, here are some videos from the press conference that includes Kelly, Zorich, Crist and more…

Kelly To ND

According to, well… everyone. Brian Kelly is heading to Notre Dame as its next Head Coach. Word.

2009 Subway Domer Awards Ballot

It’s that time of year. The awards circuit. In that spirit, Subway Domer is talking a breather from reading the millions of coaching search tidbits about Notre Dame. I give you the 2009 Subway Domer Awards Ballot. I did this last year and had some very good results. There is only one difference this year- […]

The Brawling Hibernian Joins The Dark Side

I promised my fans on Facebook and on Twitter that I had some big news regarding Subway Domer. The Brawling Hibernian has thrown caution to the wind and is joining Subway Domer as a feature writer and fellow badass. Some, if not most of you, are already familiar with him from his own blog. His […]

There Can Be Only One: The Final Stats

Thanks to everyone that participated this year. After 14 weeks… there is a tie. Catawba and Holy Cross are your co-champions. Since, I promised two shirts to the winner, i will forgo that and grant both Holy Cross and Catawba a shirt. (Contact me). I will be hosting a bowl contest for another shirt, but […]


In case you didn’t already know, Notre Dame has turned down a chance to play in a bowl game. Notre Dame released this statement on Friday: Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick: “After meetings again today involving our coaching staff as well as the leadership group representing our football team, we have made the decision […]


Many of you, if not all of you, have already learned of Louis Nix’s commitment to Notre Dame. What is lost in the wake of a decommitment from Chris Martin, and of course the coaching search that is underway at ND, is how outstanding this Louis Nix commitment is for Notre Dame. I’ll make this simple. […]


Is this exciting, or what? Monday felt a lot like National Signing Day. Popular Notre Dame blogs, message boards, and recruiting sites were closing shop and crashing like 2012 was happening in 2009. Rumors are flying everywhere- even if they don’t have the wings and we may have witnessed hell freezing over as Notre Dame […]
