Pittsburgh Week

Well we start off this week with the good news that ILB recruit Alex Anzalone will be visiting ND this coming Sunday with both parents. He has a game Saturday so he will miss the Pitt game–there is a hurricane though in his neck of the woods. Fingers crossed as he plans to enroll early […]

Early Halloween Treat

We don’t know if we will have power because of this hurricane about to hit us so I’m posting this incredible creation before Halloween. Anyway, feel free to pass it along – especially to USC fans… Click the picture to enlarge it… Enjoy!!

Redemption Notre Dame 30 Oklahoma 13

Sold out stadium, away night game, hostile and fired up Sooner Nation , high flying Sooner offense, announcers Herbstreit and Brent Musberger calling the game–actually looking to pan ND as losers and still not relevant. Funny to see them eat crow. Redemption for Brian Kelly–wins defining game, Redemption for Everett Golson–came of age and led […]

Musings Before Tonights Game

GAIII– did not accompany the team to Okla.—-Flu So who returns kickoffs–I’d put DaVonte Neal there. We need to get this kid into the offense Somehow. Wonder what Aaron Lynch thinks now? Lynch’s absence, however has given us a new look at the always steady but not spectacular old man of the team Kapron Moore–wow […]

Notre Dame VS. Oklahoma

When looking at these 2 teams a couple of things standout. Of course, for Notre Dame it’s Everett Golson. Will he finally grow up and play to his potential or will he come apart at the seams which he has done in all the games he’s been pulled. Kelly has been babying this kid like […]

Oklahoma Week Part Two

Ok, so let’s see what the Sooners have been doing this year–ranked # 8 with a 5-1 record: UTEP W 24 – 7 Fla. A & M? W 69 – 13 Kansas State L 24-19 Texas Tech W 41 – 20 Texas 63 – 21 Kansas W 52 – 7 So they start out and […]

Oklahoma Week

Hopefully history will repeat itself once again when ND visits Norman Okla. to take on the Sooners. If there is anywhere in the country more savagely anti Notre Dame I don’t know where it is. Even before the classic 1957 game the Sooner nation hated ND and not just for football. Oklahoma football was just […]

Notre Dame 17 BYU 14

Whew, well that’s over and the Irish are 7-0. Really not a good offensive day for ND point wise but ND racked up 270-60 yards rushing over BYU which was 3rd in the country in rushing defense. ND got it going just enough to win late and that is scary with the Oklahoma Sooners on […]

Kelly Muddles the Quarterback Situation

At Brian Kelly’s final press update for the BYU game he indicated he can’t name starting QB at this time and won’t know until game day. He went on to say Golson is progressing and they will continue to monitor him even though he has been green lighted to practice. What surprised everyone was when […]

Notre Dame Vs. BYU

I really wish Notre Dame had a tuneup opponent this week. Somehow or other I would like to see a solid running game by the Irish to determine whether this is a good line or not. Also I’m not sold on their pass blocking. Our QB’s have very little time to scan the field and […]
