The Site Is Moving

Hey everybody, We decided to do all future blogging on this site: http://www.irishfootballrant.com/ We will still update this with schedules and other info, but all the blogging will be done on the other site. The reason for this is that we were getting bombarded by spam every time a new post was made. We tried […]

TEXAS WR IS COMMIT NUMBER 5 IN 2015 CLASS

Coach Kerry Cooks reel in his 2nd TX recruit with the commit of WR Jalen Guyton Texas 6’1″ 180 with burner speed. Guyton visited ND last week and yesterday made the call to Cooks. Boy feels real good making inroad in Texas–probably best HS football in the country. Apparently Guyton narrowed it down to Stanford […]

COMMIT NUMBER 4 FOR 2015 CLASS

Safety Prentice McKinney 6’2″ 180–4 Star from Dallas Texas gave his verbal to coach Cooks Thursday night. Calling the Notre Dame offer his dream offer, he commits before even visiting although he’ll be up for the Blue Gold Game April 12th. Gotta like these big Safeties. So 2015 has a QB, 2 OL and now […]

Spring Practice 2014

Some videos from Saturday – really doesn’t mean a hell of a lot since reporters only get a very brief glimpse and I don’t know who’s who anyhow. Kelly gives the usual bs about Golson needs to get to know receivers – looks rusty and Zaire looks to me more of a runner. Golson missed […]

Spring Football – 2014

Kelly starts off with a press conference Friday and then 2 days of actual practice Mon. & Tues – then 2 weeks off and then practice up to the April 12th Blue Gold Game. A few coaching changes – Elliott to OLB coach and Cooks to CB’s and Safeties. Players move – Farley to CB […]

Cody Riggs To Notre Dame

Notre Dame scored a big pick up in Riggs a 5’9″ 190lb. Corner Back who will complete his 5th year at ND after spending 4 years at Florida. He will enroll in Graduate School this summer along with the 2014 Class. This is like picking up a 5 Star albeit for only one year–good move […]

OKAY–WHICH FRESHMAN GET PLAYING TIME IN 2014

Let’s start with the OL : We had a terrific haul last year, so it will be hard for any of the frosh to crack the 2 deep except–Quenton Nelson or just “Q” tough nasty Jersey kid. Got to prove it but he will play this year. Sam Mustipher–tough kid and may be able to […]

2014 Commits Signed Letter Of Intent = 23 For The Class

Notre Dame finished with 23 signed and sealed for the 2014 class. Late addition of DT Daniel Cage 4 Star from Winton Woods HS in Cinncy.. Ohio. What’s very strange here is that this kid wanted to go to ND and we never offered until very late. He’s rated a 4 star and ND badly […]

Finalizing The Staff

Brian Kelly made it official – Mike Denbrock will be the new offensive Co-ordinator and develop the game plan. Kelly will call the plays. He also introduced the new QB coach Matt LaFleur. Two new Graduate hired: former Notre Dame Safety kyle McCarthy and Mike Hiestand (son of OL coach Harry) he previously coached at […]

Commit 23 Then Back To 22

Notre Dame flipped Rutgers commit Peter Mokwuah a 3 Star DL 6’4″ 300 + lbs from a small Catholic school – St Josephs in Staten Island NY. Apparently new DC VanGorder made a beeline to him right after he was officially introduced as the new DC by Notre Dame. This kid is a big body […]
